Stage 2 - League Resumption

When it is safe to do so, our approved protocols and pathway allow for the resumption of 7v7 or 5v5 leagues and game play in Stage 2. MODS is happy to announce to our members that we will be opening a modified 8 week 7v7 summer mixed league in early August and also a new 5v5 summer league for juniors which will run 2 games per week over 5 weeks. All of these programs are opening to registration, but we would like to remind everyone that dates are subject to change and we will only open leagues if it is still safe to do so and we have continued support from Sport Manitoba, the Province of Manitoba and our partners.

MODS Summer League for Juniors!

The MODS Summer 5 on 5 Junior leagues is a new offering to help replace the loss of the CUC series for Team Manitoba players this summer and will offer a competitive model with coaches to help build off development in stage 1. These leagues are open to all student athletes from 12 to 18 years old.

Registration is done individually and the program coaches will assign players to teams based on age and experience. Multiple tiers and teams will be made if numbers allow. We will begin play in August and run for 2 weeks in September (6 week league). Games will take place twice a week on Tuesday's and Thursday's creating a 10 game season with 2 playoff games to end the program. This is a unique one time set up to accommodate the lost junior programs and competition due to COVID-19.

*All players register individually and are placed on a team.

*All players must have a valid paid Jr membership and parent signed waivers (online) before competing.

*All players must comply with the MODS return to play policies.
