Hooray!! We’re playing again … with other people and umpires and mosquitoes and everything!

CLFHA MODIFIED LEAGUE FORMAT FOR 2021

  • There will 2 divisions this summer.
  • For Division I, weekly games will be held on Tuesday evenings.
  • For Division II, weekly games will be held on Monday evenings + some Wednesday evenings if the Monday falls on a stat holiday/long weekend.
  • We are reserving a couple of Wednesday evenings in late August in case there are weather-related events early in this shortened modified season.
  • The season will be July and August (proposed start date is the week of July 5th) with a possibility of continuing through to mid-September, provided that FHA will similarly extend the timeframe for membership/insurance per below.

  • This is for the FHC portion of your membership fee.
  • FHA is currently discussing and reviewing and may/would have to make the same or similar decision to extend the membership.

OTHER DETAILS

  • From a risk management perspective to ensure a safe return to the sport, players may only play in either Division I or Division II this summer.
  • Goalies may play for other teams in the same division.
  • Players are able to sub on other teams in the same division if that team is short of a full team (fewer than 10 field players).
  • Umpires may umpire for either division.
  • Masks are not required while playing or on the bench, but are required when not playing (coming to or leaving the pitch).
