Boys U9/10 and U11/12 teams are now at capacity. New registrants in this age group will be put on a waitlist. The U13 - U18 teams are full with the exception of a couple of teams that have 1-2 spots available. The house league teams are also nearing capacity, but we will try and accommodate as many players as possible. Online registration is also still open. Click here to access the form.
It is now official. After many trials and tribulations, and with much lobbying by our Club President as well as many other club members, we are finally getting a turf field at Lower Sherman, alongside the curling rink.
Based on a report from Island Health stating that artificial turf causes no substantial effect on players' health, the majority of North Cowichan councillors voted recently to approve the building of a turf field for the Cowichan Valley Soccer Association.
If all goes according to schedule, the project should be completed and the field ready for use in November.
