Community soccer thrives and survives because parents drive their children, because great people coach, and because of selfless volunteers and executives. Thanks everyone!
Many hours of preparation culminate in our year round play. Most is conducted behind a “curtain”. The work you think we do – multiply it by ten!
How are we doing? The executive works diligently and can always do better. Suggestions?
Consider joining the executive. Input is wonderful, but many hands are crucial to the club’s success.

Youth “kickoff” is 6:15 pm every Thursday in July and August on all the Haliburton village school complex fields – weather permitting.
Please bring your old T shirts and donate them back to build our inventory. Washed please.
Indoor soccer is most Thursdays at 6:45 pm from October 3rd onward to early May – no indoor when the school is closed for holidays or the buses are cancelled. A CUPE strike causes soccer to be cancelled.
- Outdoor is on the Brohman at the high school in Haliburton, beside the plane and the train.
- Adult outdoor is never cancelled for weather. Adults have to make their own decision to come into town or not. Light rain can be the perfect condition to play in – cool – no bugs.
- Everybody helps set up and put away. If you aren’t sure how to assemble or take apart nets ask to avoid breaking something!
Adult indoor has some room for more players.
Our coaches are all unpaid volunteers. Be nice to them. Please help them discretely.
Headers are not allowed in ages 4 to 9 and only slow moving balls may be headed in the rest. We encourage everyone, including adults, to let fast moving balls go by. Concussions can alter your life.
There is a lot of support material for our coaches on the NEWSROOM page thanks to Terrance. Check it out. The first priority is to have fun. Without it everything else is difficult.
Every time we hear thunder or see lightning everyone must leave the field and go to a safe place for 30 minutes. The 30 minutes starts all over again at each new thunder clap or lightning flash. Cars are safe places if they are not convertibles and if there are no violent winds.
No slid tackles, ever. Call all your headers and everyone else backs off. Do not head high energy balls. Let them go by.
Drive carefully and slowly. Young soccer players could dart into your path. They are unpredictable and exited.
We Always Appreciate Help!
Please volunteer. Assistant, vacation relief or head coaches are our heros. It is a lot of fun. Volunteers get one free registration. Coaches also get an honorarium ($60 in 2018) from any surplus funds of our non profit club.
