Turf Field Rules for Spring Soccer
The City of Chilliwack has agreed to allow Spring Soccer spectators to use the covered team benches at Exhibition Field. This will help parents of players with games on the east fields be a little closer to the action. This will be allowed as long as the rules below are followed:
- Only players and coaches are allowed to be on the turf – spectators view behind the fences on the west side.
- The team bench area on the east side will be open for spectators for the U5-U8 divisions only. In order to access the team benches, spectators must walk around the outside fence from the main entrance – they are not to walk across the field.
- Absolutely no food or drink to be in the covered team bench area (other than water).
- Absolutely no food or drink on the turf (except water).
Spectators will be required to stay behind the fences for the games scheduled at Townsend Park, there will be no access to the covered benches. The facilities we are using are owned and operated by the City of Chilliwack and everyone must follow their rules or CFC may lose access to the fields.
Questions: For any Spring Soccer related questions or comments please contact the Chilliwack FC office administrator Liz Freeman via e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at 604-792-0090 or visit the CFC Office located at the south end of the Rotary building at Townsend Park, office hours listed here.
Exhibition Stadium Concession
Chilliwack FC operates the concession at Exhibition Filed Stadium. The “Corner Kick Concession” will be open every evening during the spring soccer season.
The Spring Soccer Concept
The Spring Soccer League (formerly referred to as Seven-a-Side League) has been an option for our players for over 10 yrs now. It was established to provide an alternative to the structured, competitive nature of fall soccer. The Spring Soccer League is geared towards boys and girls who want to play purely for the fun of the sport. There is a less competitive edge to it. Results of regular season games are not recorded. Standings are not kept. There is no tiering of teams into divisions of different levels. All teams play at the same level. Many new players play in the Spring Soccer League as do some established fall rep players. The teams are formed as fairly as possible by evenly distributing rep players amongst the teams.
This program is meant to develop a love for the game and emphasizes team play and fun rather than skills and drills. It also allows our Fall players an outlet to play but with a break from competitive soccer. It also is a great introduction for new players to the sport. All age groups wrap up their season with a Pizza Night after their final game. All players playing in the Spring Soccer League are awarded a participation medal at the end of the season.
As always the involvement of parents as team coach/managers is important to the success of the league. A thorough knowledge of the game is not required. Just your enthusiasm and ability to organize, encourage and support your players is all we look for. Please check the appropriate box on your child’s registration form under the parent info if you are interested in coaching your child’s Spring League team.
