NEED TO KNOW

Schedules are subject to change based on facility availability. If location or time changes, communication will be sent out via TeamSnap.

 

Parent and Player Requirements

Players and parents must abide by the Policies and Procedures of the club.

 

Need financial assistance?

** We are a non-profit soccer club and we strive to balance low program fees (as low as possible) with superior coaching and training opportunities. If our fees present a barrier for your player, we encourage you to contact Suburban FC at admin@suburbanfc.ca to discuss payment options. There are also opportunities for financial support available through KidSport and Jumpstart ** 

 

What happens if there is bad weather and field closures? 

** Unfortunately due to time constraints and field availability, there will be no make-up sessions or pro-rated refunds due to poor weather/field closure. Field closures and extreme weather conditions are beyond our control. We will always strive to ensure that programming is offered when we have access to fields and it does not jeopardize the safety of our players. Any cancellations will be clearly communicated via TeamSnap.  **
