Players of all ability levels and experience are welcome to have fun on our new artificial turf field in this popular league which has now been running for 12 years.
Get a little exercise and enjoy the beautiful game with your friends, neighbours and relations - beginners welcome! A pick-up style format will be used where players can choose the nights they wish to play. Players will be divided into 2 teams on the night to create a competitive atmosphere, as well an opportunity to play with different players each night. Keep an eye out for some friendly competitive fun as well, like East Bowen vs West Bowen or Bowen Old Timers vs Bowen Newbies. For more details of the League ethos, see our Guidelines.
Adult 50+ 4-A-Side and 5-A-Side Program (players 50-60+)
The program will consist of 3v3, 4v4, and 5v5 games on small pitches which will increase activity and fitness (shorter distances to run), increase soccer skills and touches with the ball, increase team effectiveness and game-based decision-making, and more box-to-box exciting soccer for 50-60+ players (including some sessions on competitive walking soccer). It will be overseen by Bowen Islander Harry Hubball who is the Director and Head Coach of the 50-60+ INTER UBC Masters 5-a-side/Futsal Soccer Academy Program (1999-Present); he is the founding Chairperson of the 50-60+ International Masters 5-a-side/Futsal World Cup and Symposium (2006-Present) which is held annually in Europe.
