Soccer is played in all weather conditions and many players will remember that some of their most memorable matches were played in terrible weather! That being said, games and training sessions are at times cancelled because of stormy weather and/or wet soggy fields.
The Kingston Clippers Soccer Club rents all of its fields from the City of Kingston and Queen’s University and is subject to the field closure policies of these organizations. If the fields are closed, all training sessions and games on those fields are cancelled. The most timely way of getting information about field closures are the Clippers website, Facebook page or Twitter account.
Even if the fields have not been closed by the City or Queens, inclement weather may still impact the decision to start and continue a game or training session. Activities should not be started or should be stopped for thunder and lightning or if the grass fields are so wet that continuing to play will seriously damage the field. The decision to cancel a game in the event of inclement weather is the responsibility of the referee. At team training sessions, the decision to stop the session will be made the coach supervising the activity. Referees and coaches are encouraged to err on the side of caution in all situations.

One of the benefits to your membership in the Kingston Clippers Soccer Club House League is the Extra Kicks Program. These sessions will be followed by a scrimmage.
All House League coaches and their teams of all ages are welcome to come to Jim Beattie during these times and run their own practices, independent of the sessions provided by the Club Staff.
In partnership with the West End Boys and Girls Club, the Kingston Clippers are pleased to offer summer soccer camps for those interested in having fun and improving their soccer skills. These camps are for players from 5 to 12 years old of all abilities and interests. Cost for these camps is $195 per week ($165 for 4 day camps in weeks 1 and 6).
Despite some cool and wet weather, our Recreational Program had a successful startup!
To see game schedules:
There is very limited space in some divisions so if you still have not registered, contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 613-384-6196. Note that most team rosters are full and player movement between teams is very unlikely at this point.
U15 L5 had a good game last Tuesday at Portland but the local team gave their best leaving the score at 1-1. Great effort girls. Keep it up
At the Kingston Clippers Soccer Club, our vision is to provide the people of Kingston, Ontario with access to affordable, quality soccer and fundamental movement coaching in a FUN learning environment. The Kingston Clippers are a non-profit organization with over 2,000 members. We are a community sport organization that prides itself on inclusiveness.
The opportunity to participate at every level of the player pathway is offered at our club that provides recreational programs for children as young as two years old all the way to adulthood. Our members also have the opportunity to play competitively from the age of nine onwards. Over 50 local sponsors play a major role within our organization providing financial support for necessities such as field time, referees, uniforms, equipment, travel, and without their continued support our club would cease to exist.
