Sooke Shredders duking it out vs. Gorge at the Fred Milne soccer fields.

Sooke Soccer Association News

A brief about the upcoming soccer District Cup Finals this weekend taking place in Sooke.

After a tough and successful soccer season for our boys and girls, a total of six – that’s right – six – Sooke soccer teams qualified for the District Cup Finals this upcoming weekend, with Sooke itself playing the honourable host at the Fred Milne Park soccer fields.

Since adrenaline will be high in the air and the schedule tight as a drum, teams will have very limited time to warm up. In addition, the Sooke Soccer Association laid down some ground rules to keep things running smoothly.

For one, be sure to arrive early; parking space is expected to become crowded as teams, staff and parents from across Vancouver Island will be venturing into Sooke on Saturday morning (first Sooke match of the day will be silver Girls U16 Wildcats vs. Saanich Fusion  at 10 a.m.).

Secondly, no one, except for the players, is to go on the field at the final whistle. Your list of five shooters must be handed to the referee without delay, according to the Association. And finally, following your game, both teams (all players and coaches) must report to the awards area (near the clubhouse) for a presentation of the District Cup and game MVPs.
