The Superstar Women Over Thirty (SWOT) is a recreational women's soccer program for women over thirty years old. This program is designed for women of all skill levels from beginner to superstar! No prior soccer skills or experience are necessary, just the will and determination to get up on Sunday mornings to have fun, develop soccer skills, and enjoy the positive rapport with your fellow team mates.
Team balancing is the foundation of our league. You join as an individual and teams are formed based on an even distribution of players based on their skills and position. Balancing is accomplished through player self-ratings and independent ratings conducted during the previous season. Teams are established using a draw of players within each of the five rating categories. So you may not necessarily be playing with your friend, neighbour, co-worker, or sister, but SWOT will attempt to accommodate such requests so long as team balancing is not compromised. Check the "Matched Special Request" policy on the registration form for more details.
As teams are formed every year, it is quite possible that over the years you will get to know your opponents quite well too, and that creates a very positive, relaxed soccer environment. Each season ends with an award ceremony and dance.
The SWOT program is a recreational venue providing an easy-going, fun environment, while at the same time giving those muscles a good workout. If you are looking for an aggressive, must-win soccer venue, then you need to keep searching for an appropriate program suitable to your competitive needs.
Soccer brings us together but SWOT is not only about soccer. SWOT is also about building long term friendships, give women time for themselves and provides an opportunity to integrate and/or contribute with our community. We organize fundraising soccer tournaments and other events like boot camps, dinners, etc
