The FESTIVAL’S PRIMARY PURPOSE – TO HAVE FUN & MAKE NEW FRIENDS!!  










VOLUNTEERS & COACHES  - REGISTER HERE 

Our festival relies on volunteerism. Each team needs a manager or coach. Please consider being a coach/manager. Significant coaching experience is not required. Elder siblings are more than welcome to coach. A manager/coach is responsible for the following:

  • Distributing juice boxes
  • Positive encouragement and managing equal playing time
  • Informing players of the team's festival schedule

If you are interested please fill out an online registration ASAP - CLICK HERE


Please register players ASAP. A delay will result in players being placed on a wait list and possibly not finding space in the tournament. The popularity and unique nature of World Cups mean that the number of entries determines:

  • The number and composition of the teams to be formed.
  • The schedule for the 2-day tournament which involves over 100 games.


Players are requested to carpool or use the Galloping Goose / Lochside Trail as parking is very limited.

TEAM FORMATION

  • Team lists, schedules and coaching information will be emailed to all players.

  • Low registration in any age group means that divisions may be combined in a two year age grouping to form a division.

  • ​There is no guarantee of space in the festival for any entries as there are a limited number of spaces in each division.

  • Players on the wait list will be placed on teams as space becomes available.

  • Team managers will distribute T-shirts and programs at the Opening Ceremonies.


OPENING CEREMONIES

  • Friday, March 30th, 2018 at 10:00 am at Lochside Park 
  • Teams meet their coaches at Lochside Park from 9:30 am on and then assemble behind their national team flag bearer.
  • The festival will commence after a sky-diver delivers the game ball and a few short speeches.


THERE IS NO REGISTRATION AT THE EVENT!
