Fields

SUMMER FIELDS

Currently we play most of our summer games out of McMaster University with a mix of grass and turf fields available for use. Paid parking is conveniently located right next to these fields. Street parking is available (about a 10-15 min walk to fields). Restrooms and water are available. Other west end fields we use regularly include Kay Drage Park (soccer fields at north end of park). This field offers free parking, but restrooms may not be available.

FALL OUTDOOR FIELDS

Kay Drage Park (soccer fields at north end of the park) is the usual location of our fall outdoor 6v6 league. Free parking available next to fields. Restrooms may not be available. WE ARE SEEKING OPTIONS FOR LIT TURF FIELDS FOR 2022.

SUMMER FIELDS

Occasionally games will be played at our east end fields including Father Sean O’Sullivan Memorial Park & Garth Street Reservoir. FSOM has ample street parking available and a playground in close proximity to the field. Garth Street Reservoir is located on the top of a hill and parking (bottom of hill) is limited (carpool if possible). Both fields will likely not have restrooms available. 

FALL OUTDOOR FIELDS

New fields in 2021, Heritage Green Sports Park is located in Stoney Creek. Games will be played on grass fields under the lights. Parking is free at the fields and restrooms are available.

FALL & WINTER INDOOR FIELDS

We play all of our indoor leagues out of Soccerworld on Frid St. This is a dome with two mid-sized fields. There are restrooms, water, & vending machines available at this location. 6v6 league is played on both fields with one game playing at a time on each field (usually we have 3 timeslots for this Sunday league). 4v4 league is played on one field with 3 games playing at a time (usually we have two timeslots for this Tuesday league).
