Whitehorse Recreational Co-ed Soccer is a non-competitive recreational league for adults (18 and over) that has been running since 1999. Whether you join for outdoor or indoor, you'll meet many people, get lots of exercise, and have loads of fun. We typically put on one social event each season as well. Plus, you get a glamorous T-shirt for your registration fee. Our outdoor season starts in May, the indoor season in October.
Features of the league include:
- A friendly, recreational atmosphere
- Equal time on the field for all players
- No contact or rough play
- Engineered teams
- Team shirt with logo
- No fitness or experience necessary
- Web and e-mail administration
- Partial indoor season rates
The league executive is a group of volunteers that presently includes: Michael Tilbrook, Vaughan Johnstone, Ehab Alhag Hussein, Gregory Bryce, Joanna Sharp, John Main and Stephanie Main.

2017 Outdoor Season
The 2017 outdoor season starts on 24 May, and will run until the weather or bad light stop play (typically early September).
Registration for the 2017 outdoor season closed on 18 May 2017. Team lists have been uploaded to the downloads page.
If you did not manage to register in time, we do still have a few spots available for late registration. Late registration can be done online. If you don't have a credit card or are unable to use the online registration, please contact the league to make other arrangements.

Refunds / Fee Adjustments
The league is not able to refund players who after registering become unable to play due to an injury, a change in their work schedule, an unplanned move from the Territory, a new love in their life, a spouse complaining that they're not spending enough time at home – well, you get the idea. Sorry, but the league is now so large that, because it's administered by volunteers, we need things to be standardized. That includes there being one schedule of fees for everyone.
Related to this, the league cannot offer an individualized fee to any player. For example, if you can't play on a certain night each week, well that's the way it goes. You don't get to pay less than the regular fee.
To date the league has had dozens of successful social events. They have ranged from an afternoon of curling, trivia games, food and drinks at the Whitehorse Curling Club to a pizza and mass Pictionary house party.
Other events in recent years have tended toward nachos and drinks on the patio of Sanchez Cantina or pizza and appies and beer at a restaurant or pub. Your ideas and enthusiasm are needed!
Anyone interested in organizing social events, or with suggestions, should speak to a member of the executive. We welcome ideas and assistance!
