Tournaments and Fields

A few things to note as the season has begun:

Summary of Law changes

As many know, there are new Laws in place for this year's season, and a number of these change the way that the game is played. IFAB, the maintainers of the Laws of the Game, put together a brief document explaining changes that affect players and coaches.

Note that not all of these changes apply to the recreational level games we have in the GKSSA.

CFB Kingston field

Please note that the CFB Kingston field this year is the Hospital Field as McNaughton is currently unavailable for use.

Enter the base at the same location (Hwy 2, north side, opposide McDonald’s). Follow the road around to the right, past the parking lot and turn left at the first intersection. Follow that road straight, around some buildings, and you will see the Hospital Field off to the right beside a softball diamond.

GKSSA Board Changes

Effective today, Alex Fletcher has stepped down from the role of Discipline Chair and become a Director-At-Large on the GKSSA Board. Adam Hu nt is taking over the position, vacating his Director-At-Large position to step into the role of Discipline Chair. Thanks to Alex for his work in this role, and best of luck to Adam moving forward.

2016-17 team name changes

As happens each season, there are some new teams and some teams that change names. This is intended to be a short listing of each.

2016-17 indoor season archived

As we prepare for the upcoming outdoor season, the 2016-17 indoor season has now been archived.

The outdoor teams have been populated, but not all information may be correct at this point in time. The schedule will be finalized as the season approaches.

If you are in charge of a team and information is incorrect (name, shirt colours, sponsors, contacts, etc), please send an email with the required information to GKSSA Statistician .

2017 Outdoor Registration

Team registration for the outdoor 2017 season will take place March 30th from 6-7pm at the Gardiner's Road Boston Pizza (bar side). At this time, a deposit cheque of $500 will be due. Failure to meet the March 30th deadline may jeopardize your spot in the league.

This registration meeting will determine a team’s placement and what availability we might have to accommodate new teams.

The Spring meeting will take place during the week of April 24th. An exact date and time will be announced shortly. At the spring meeting the remainder of the team fees will be due. The exact amount will be no less than last years fees.
