Drop by any time between 7pm and 9pm and we’ll be available to answer questions, take cash or credit card registrations and provide you with any details you may need about the upcoming season.

Whether it is our adult rec soccer leagues, Footy For All kids soccer programs or renting the field, Ryan, Andrew and Chris will be available to answer any of your questions.

  • Where: Room 129, Heart Lake Secondary School, 296 Conestoga Drive, Brampton

About our adult soccer leagues:

Our spring soccer leagues kick off in the first week of May and run through until the end of June. You can register a whole team for $750 or as an individual for only $85 for any of the 9-week leagues. All of the leagues are 7 vs 7, fully refereed and played on the brand new turf fields at Heart Lake Secondary School. We will also have a summer season in July and August and a fall season in September and October.

About our kids soccer programs:

Our spring program is designed to give 4-11 year-old kids a fun soccer experience with our great team of coaches and volunteers. For parents it offers a simple, convenient youth soccer option at a great price.

Our coaches will be working on skill development and refining technique for part of the session. However, our main focus is that the boys and girls in the program have fun and enjoy their soccer. No try-outs or kids left on the bench while the star players get all the playing time. We’ll treat all our players the same with a supportive environment and equal opportunity for all.

Spring 2018 will be our 2nd season of Footy For All programming at the new facility. We will also be offering a summer season in July and August and a fall season in September and October.

Worst Dive Ever? Spare a thought for the ref!


BBC Sport highlighted this incredible dive during a Chilean Primera Division game, and it really is something to see. We can’t think of ever having seen many more blatant or ridiculous dives than this.

That being said, when you see it from the other angle (about 0:50 on the clip), you can see why the referee could have been taken in by it. From the angle the ref would have been looking at it, the movement of the defenders leg behind the diving forward could easily have been mistaken for a foul, especially at full speed without the benefit of multiple angles and slow motion.

It just shows how tough a job referees have. So the next time you are playing and can’t believe that a ref missed or called something that was really clear to you . . . cut them some slack, it may look completely different from their angle!

Fortunately we’ve never seen dives like that in our leagues, and if you want to join us for men’s, women’s and coed spring 7vs7 soccer in Brampton, you can register a team for only $750 or individually for $85 at toronto.footysevens.com.

Images of soccer around the world

Goal Click Photo - Inca Trail

This article from the BBC contains some wonderful images of football/futbol/soccer from around the world. Its an interesting idea to try to gather pictures from soccer from every country in the world, all shot on the same basic camera. There’s definitely some pictures that tug at the heart strings of anyone who loves their soccer and remind us of how lucky we are to have the facilities we have here in the GTA.

Bangkok Sports Club and Satri Angthong were tied at 19-19 in sudden death penalties. That’s pretty amazing as it is, but you will NEVER see a winning goal like this one, courtesy of the BBC.

One Week Until the Kicking Cancer’s Butt Charity Soccer Tournament


Saturday September 23rd. 12 Noon to 5pm

Heart Lake Secondary School, Conestoga Drive, Brampton

7vs7 Coed & Men’s Soccer Tournament

One week to go until the first Kicking Cancer’s Butt Charity Soccer Tournament. All of the money raised will fund essential cancer treatment and research in the city and EVERY PENNY OF EVERY TEAM FEE OR DONATION GOES STRAIGHT TO THE WILLIAM OSLER HS FOUNDATION. We’ve pledged to outfit an entire room in the oncology wing by raising at least $25,000 over the next 5 years and you can play a big part in that just by playing soccer!

The tournament is a one day 7-a-side coed soccer tournament and will take place outdoors at the brand new 7-a-side fields at Heart Lake Secondary School in Brampton. What better way could there be to bring your summer soccer season to a close and get a chance to try out the new facility?


Each 7-a-side team will play a minimum of 3 games during their round robin section. The top two from each 4 team section will go through to the playoffs and from then on it’s knockout format until we crown a champion.


  • Saturday 23rd September 12.00pm-3.30pm: round robin group stages: all teams will play a minimum of 3 x 30 minute games.
  • Saturday 23rd September 3.30pm-5.30pm: playoffs, single elimination knock-out format to crown Brampton’s first Kicking Cancer’s Butt champion.

Charity Coed Soccer Tournament in Brampton


Team Registration is now open for both MEN’S and COED teams.

Teams register for the tournament by clicking here to go to the tournament page on the Toronto Footy Sevens Website. Click on the “Register a Team” link, fill in your details and your team’s name and we will send you details of how to make your online donation to the William Osler HS Foundation by e-mail within 24 hours of you registering your team.


The tournament isn’t just for teams: individuals don’t need to miss out just because they don’t have a full team to register. Individual registration is also open. Register for the tournament at the Footy Sevens tournament page and click to register as an individual. Just like the team registrations, we’ll send you details of how to make your donation to the William Osler HS foundation.

Crossing the Finish Line: Construction Blog #7

Ball at Centre spot

We got there!

It seems appropriate that the finish line for the track was pretty much the last part of the project to be completed. After months of construction, the field and track are now complete and have started to be used by the students at Heart Lake Secondary School, our Footy Sevens Soccer Leagues, our Footy For All Kids soccer programs and various rental groups.

The team from Tracktech International had flown in to paint the lanes and lines on the track. We had no idea how much went into that part of the job. It took three days and we’re definitely in good hands: it was the same team that lined the Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium in Beijing!

We’ve been very lucky all round with all of the contractors and experts working on the field, and we are absolutely blown away by the quality of the field, the track, the lighting and the other parts of the field. The initial feedback from players, parents and kids has been fantastic and we are delighted to finally see soccer being played on the field.

What’s coming up on the field?

As we posted yesterday, we had our first Footy For All kids programming on there on Tuesday, and last night our first ever league games kicked off (see the photos below). Late registration is still available for both adults and kids and rental times are also available. And don’t forget our Kicking Cancer’s Butt Charity tournament that’s coming up on Saturday 23rd of September.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the planning, construction and completion of the project in any way, and we look forward to working together with Heart Lake Secondary School and the Peel District School Board at the field for many years to come.
