Goal Nets at the Frontenac SS Field Are Up

The nets are now up on the goals at the Frontenac SS field and it will remain that way through to the end of our season there. (Games at Novelis still requires each team to bring and install a net before kick-off.)

Please Report Scores by E-mail

Due to temporary problems with the score-reporting phone number (541-2000 x1486) team managers are asked to always e-mail the results of their games to Statisician Kevin McEleney at . You must report the score, goals, cards, shutouts, and MVPs for both teams. Each team must do this the night of the game. Thanks for your co-operation.

Cup Game Format

All games in the President’s Cup and Nathalie Cave Cup competitions will be full-length games. In the case of a draw after 90 minutes, two extra time periods of 10 minutes each will be held. There is no golden or silver or magnesium goal, just like at that tournament in Germany. If the score is still tied after 20 minutes of extra time, a penalty kick shootout will determine the winner.

Cup Schedules Now On-Line

The schedules for the President’s Cup and Nathalie Cave Cup tournaments are now on-line. The first game is a Nathalie Cave Cup match on Wednesday, July 5th (Loyal Oarsman vs. Rose & Crown LCFC III) and there are two President’s Cup matches on Friday, July 7th.

The final team draw will be made shortly. Until then, B Division teams do not know exactly when and where and who they’ll play. (The top part of Division B will compete for the President’s Cup with Division A teams; the bottom part of B will compete with Division C teams for the Nathalie Cave Cup.)

Two More Discipline by Review Committee Members Are Needed!

Your GKSSA needs two more DBR Committee members, preferably one from Division B and one from Division C. These positions do not require very much of your time but they are an important part of our peer review discipline process. There aren’t meetings for you to attend; believe it or not you do your part by participating in a joint review of incidents with DBRC members via e-mail (definitely not to be confused with those “get rich by sending e-mail from home” schemes).

Please contribute your time to help run the soccer league you enjoy. If you are interested in stepping up and helping out, contact Pierre Vanderhout.

Match A24 Has Been Forfeited

Match A24, originally scheduled for Friday, June 16 at McCullough 2 between El Salvador and Sporting will not take place. It has been forfeited by El Salvador for non-payment of the league fees.

No Beer at the Fields!

This shouldn’t be news to anyone, but drinking alcohol in an unlicensed public place is illegal (yes, even after a hard fought soccer match on a warm summer night in Kingston). If you do so, you run the risk of being fined by the police as well as by the GKSSA.

Rule 14.A of our Rules and Regulations states:
No team shall be allowed to drink alcoholic beverages (including but not limited to beer) at or near the soccer fields. These facilities are public or private facilities made available for the use of the league with the understanding that the privilege of their use will be respected. Any team (or their supporters) that is proven to be breaking this rule will be fined a minimum of One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) for each occurrence.

Please respect the fields and those who own them. Park only in the appropriate locations; don’t litter; clean up litter; don’t abuse the facilities; and don’t drink in public.

30th Annual CAN-AM Friendship Soccer Tournament

The Cataraqui Soccer Club is proud to be this year’s host of the 30th Annual CAN-AM Friendship Soccer Tournament this weekend: Friday, May 26 through Sunday, May 28. All games will be held at Woodbine Park. There is a total of eight teams competing: four from Canada, four from the USA.

Our MPP, the Honourable John Gerretson, and Mr. John Dickson, Deputy Chief of Mission, U.S. Embassy to Canada, will acknowledge the uniqueness of this tournament at the park during a special ceremony at 3 PM on Saturday.

This tournament is also being used to help raise funds for the Alan Francis Indoor Soccer Field in Napanee. More information on the Tournament is available here, on the Cataraqui Soccer Club’s site.

Oldtimer’s Team Looking for Players

Tom’s Place is looking for players 35 or more years-old for their team in the local Oldtimer’s league. Games will be played on Fridays from June to October. If you’re interested, please contact Seamus Ryan at 549-5018 or through e-mail to seamus.ryan at queensu.ca.

Goal Nets at the Frontenac SS Field

Until the end of June, each team that plays at the Frontenac SS field must provide and install their own goal netting before kick-off!

Novelis Field Unavailable on May 15

Games C1 and C2 were originally scheduled to be played at the Novelis field on May 15. The field is not available on that date and other fields will be found for these matches.

GKSSA General Meeting and Registration for the 2006 Outdoor Season

A GKSSA General Meeting will held on Wednesday, April 12 at 7:00 at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour. All teams must send an official representative. Failure to attend or to properly notify the league in advance will result in your team being fined.

Also, all outdoor teams owe the GKSSA a deposit of $900 for the 2006 outdoor season. This deposit is due at April’s general meeting. If this deposit is not received on time, your team’s entry in to this year’s outdoor league is not assured!

In addition, all indoor teams that owe the GKSSA player fees or fines must remit full payment on or before April 12’s General Meeting. This payment must not be included in the same cheque used to pay the $900 outdoor season deposit.


Competitive players that are interested in trying out for the Limestone City Football Club’s team entry in the 2006 season of Ottawa-Carleton Soccer League (OCSL) should phone Brian Morton at 634-0180 right away. There is a meeting and work-out for prospective players on Saturday, March 18 at Frontenac Secondary School. You may also contact Brian by e-mail at .
