Ombrelle Active Start Fests

Last Updated: Feb 11th, 2015

The Ombrelle Active Start Soccer Fests is a program targeted at children under the age of 12. The goal of the festival program is to introduce the sport of soccer to youth through a fun-filled event for both children and their parents. Games are played on downsized fields using smaller versions of balls, nets, and simplified rules, with an emphasis on fun, participation, and good sportsmanship.

The NWT Soccer Association (NWTSA) encourages its member clubs, school and community leaders to apply to host a festival. Once approved, organizers can expect to receive cash grants and promotional materials from the Canadian Soccer Association and its sponsors, to run the festival event in the local community. 

Application deadline: May 1st
