MODS gets ready for the fall season with "Parity League" for newcomers and those looking for an entry level league with more focus on fun and learning than winning. Also back for another acclaimed season is the "Adult Mixed Fall Outdoor League" allowing keen players a chance to extend their summer and outdoor exposure for a few more weeks!
The Parity League is a unique program MODS runs in the spring and fall. Based on individual registration, the mixed league plays indoor 5-on-5. Players are assigned to a team by the league and each team has a general manager (coach). What makes Parity League unique is that stats are tracked during the game by the teams. These stats are used to calculate fake salaries for each player. Team must make trades once a week to keep their team under a salary cap. This is a great way to meet new people as participants may end up on several teams throughout the season. It’s also a great way to learn more about the game. The format of the league allows players of all skill levels to play together in a fun and supportive environment.
Parity leagues are attractive for several reasons:
Mixed-gender leagues are our most popular programs year round! We offer four nights of mixed 7-on-7 team play in the summer (May to August) as well as a fall outdoor league (September to October). In October we transition to indoors where mixed is played 5-on-5 (we also have a small 4-on-4 league). For our 7-on-7 format, the typical team size is 14 people (minumum of 12) with a 4:3 gender ratio. Participants must register as a team for all mixed leagues. Individuals, couples and small groups can use the "Free Agency" option for leagues that offer it.
For the Fall Outdoor League, expect games to be played on the new fields at Assiniboine Park and last for about 7 or 8 weeks.
