ADULT7EVENS MAKES IT’S MARK

The launch of SWAN CITY FC’s ADULT7EVENS marked the beginning of a new tradition within our soccer family.

The current pandemic was taking its toll as we headed into the summer.  Rules and protocols, while keeping us safe, did cause disruption to how our beautiful game could be enjoyed.  So, determined to provide a fun, social, and competitive environment our Technical Team proposed playing a 7-a-side format of the game that fit within the cohort safety requirements.  Our veterans of the game came forward and fully embraced the opportunity to play during the summer.

OVER 140 PLAYERS | 12 TEAMS | 4 TEAMS PER DIVISION | 2 MALE & 1 FEMALE DIVISION

More than 140 players jumped on our newly designed Rotary 7-a-side fields to show off their skills.  SWAN CITY FC, Executive Director, Dylan Cartier, highlighted that getting to the “CUP FINALs proved to be a challenge for all that competed.  Cartier, who happens to be a 10-year veteran of Grande Prairie adult soccer, found that “it changed and evolved our outdoor landscape … a blessing in disguise during a challenging summer, 7v7 provided a much-needed change for outdoor soccer in our adult leagues, one we hope to continue for years to come.”

Longtime women’s advocate, player, board member, and soccer mom, Catherine Ridgeway, relayed that the female players, “appreciated all SCFC did to reinvent the outdoor league so we had the opportunity to play the game that we love.”  It took a concerted effort to get this and other initiatives to the field this past summer during such an interesting time.  SWAN CITY FC would like to thank all of you that played, helped plan, officiated, sanitised, followed the safety rules, and made contributions in so many different ways.
