Welcome to our 2023-2024 Indoor soccer season!
- Indoor Season includes 20 games starting Sunday, October 29, 2023.
- Game duration is 2-25 minutes halves.
- Games are played on Sunday afternoon, 11:00am or Noon.
- Indoor games are played on turf at the Whitby Soccer Dome – Old – located at 695 Rossland Rd. West, Whitby.
The protocols at Whitby Soccer Dome are as follows:
- 1. Proceed to your field and have fun!
- 2. Location details are included in the schedule. Location is the same every week.
- 3. Substitutions are done on the fly.
Please refer to the maps and schedules tab for details.
To prevent injury, players are encouraged to show up early to stretch and warm up prior to the game.
- Jerseys only provided for the season.
- Indoor turf or regular turf shoes recommended.
- If you are switched from one team to another for balancing purposes, you must return your old-team jersey when you get your new-team jersey (either to a SWOT member or your Team Captain).
- Shin pads are mandatory, no exceptions!
Team Coordinators will be required to record the attendance on the weekly team sheets.
Team Coordinators are encouraged to address attendance issues through regular communication with team members. If the Team Captain identifies a need to add a player to their team, SWOT can do so from the waiting list if required, with balancing being taken into account.
TEAMS AND BALANCING
Teams are balanced based upon player self-ratings on the registration form and independent ratings conducted during the previous year’s season. Teams are established using a draw.
Players are allowed to have “One Matched Special” request. This information should be included in the registration for. The policy is as follows; Player A may request to play with ONE (1) other player (Player B). Player B can also request to play with ONE (1) other player but it must be Player A. If not, then it is not considered a Matched Special Request and will not be considered.
Please note that SWOT is unable to 100% guarantee matched special requests if team balancing is compromised.
There will be referees for this indoor season. Everyone should respect the referee calls and play fairly.
All SWOT players are registered with the Durham Region Soccer Association (DRSA) and OSA. Therefore, players are covered by the OSA insurance if they are injured during one of the SWOT league games or Cup days. All insurance information is available in the OSA web site (www.ontariosoccer.net). Click on the “organization” title and follow the path : administration – insurance.
