Saturday Field Map
Sunday Field Map

The schedule for LISA’s annual mini festival – Canada Soccer Active Start Soccer Fests – hosted by the Juan de Fuca Soccer Association is attached. Each team is scheduled two games.  All teams are scheduled to play both games on the same day (either Saturday or Sunday).  Please carefully check the schedule to confirm your date and game times!  The Field layout on Sunday will slightly differ from the provided map to accommodate additional U10 fields.

Your games will be played at the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre Fields, 1767 Island Hwy, in Colwood.  Juan de Fuca Field #1, #2, and #3 are natural grass and the Velodrome, located behind the “Q Centre” arena is artificial turf.  Lawn Bowls (U8 Only) is natural grass, please keep spectators off of the grass on these fields.  A “2022 LISA MiniFest Field Map Saturday” and a “2022 LISA MiniFest Field Map Sunday” are attached as well as a “2022 LISA MiniFest Parking Map” are attached.

All coaches/managers are to check in at the LISA administration table prior to their first game to pick up their T-shirts and game packages. There will be LISA representatives at the festival all day should you have any questions for them.

There will be a first aid attendant in attendance should you need one.Juan de Fuca will be operating a concession located next to the LISA Check-In tent.

This is a tight schedule with little, if any, time in-between games so make sure you arrive well enough ahead of time in order to find parking and to have your team ready to play. There are 179 teams participating, plus match officials, volunteers and others using the festival venues which means parking space will be in high demand all day long, so it would be a great idea to car pool!

There is no time allotted for on field warm-up time so you will need to find a suitable area nearby for your players to warm up safely and properly.

The home team (listed first on the schedule) is responsible for the game ball and must wear a jersey colour different than its opponent.

This is not a competitive tournament. There are no trophies to be won and no standings will be recorded. Do your best to make it a fun and enjoyable time for everyone, including the match officials and volunteers.

All U8 games are two halves of 20 minutes each, 4 v 4.
All U9 games are two halves of 25 minutes each, 6 v 6.
All U10 games are two halves of 25 minutes each, 6 v 6.

As previously noted, this is a tight schedule so no additional time can be added to either half.

We are looking forward to a fantastic day, and a fun festival.

See you there!
