2020/2021 INDOOR NEWS
The Durham Ultimate club is pleased to announce that this year we will once again be running our very popular Sunday league. The dome has updated their air filtering system and cleaning protocols to meet the Durham Health requirements. Technically, the dome is allowed up to 150 people in the dome but they are going to set their own limit at 100 people. This allows for roughly 30 players on each of the 3 fields. To keep our cohorts at less than 50 we will be setting the roster maximum at 12 players. We are hoping for 12-16 teams which will be broken down into cohorts of 4 teams. These 4 teams will only play each other so it is important we get teams in the correct cohorts.
All of these plans are contingent on the Ontario Government not scaling back on our current stage/phase.
The winter season will be divided into two parts. The first will run from October until December for 9 games. More information will come out later about the second half of the season that will occur in the new year. Hopefully we have this pandemic beat by then.
We look forward to the day we can welcome all players back but for now please do not sign up if:
Please note that to play in any of DUC’s indoor leagues you must have purchased a DUC membership. Please also be aware that all indoor league games will occur at the Whitby Indoor Soccer Centre at 695 Rossland Road West in Whitby.
This will be an adult only league. No children still in high school are allowed to participate. This is for the safety of the adults and maintaining safe cohorts.
