Soccer Rules

Our mission is to provide an opportunity for participants to enjoy a fun, respectable and safe playing environment, with the prospect of meeting new people. Organized Social Sports are open to UFV students, alumni, faculty and staff. We require that all participants present their UFV Campus Card. All participants will be required to sign a waiver before using UFV athletic facilities.

All Social Sports have assigned Sport Organizers who are responsible for prioritizing a safe, fun-first and inclusive sport environment, they set the rules and act as referees or umpires during games.

  1. League schedules will be available on the Campus Rec website and MyCampusLife.ufv.ca and will be sent out. Contact the organizers to get another copy.
