Modified Score & Spirit Point Reporting
Leagues will be played “for fun” with no playoffs. Scores and standings will still appear on our website. The “Spirit Score” system for Teams is still in place to share recognition or concerns with us.  No prizing or trophies will be awarded.

About Spirit Points: Spirit points are awarded to a team from their opponent after each game to encourage sportsmanship, honesty, integrity and fair play.  Click for more information and how to properly award Spirit Points.

Location

Due to COVID the Thames Valley District School Board, The London District Catholic School Board, The City of London, as well as most non-profits, private schools and churches have chosen to disallow or severely limit rental of their facilities this Fall & Winter to community groups like FCSSC. This has created an extreme shortage of play space, and made us eternally grateful to those organizations that have welcomed FCSSC in their space.

HUGE THANK YOU to the YMCA BOB HAYWARD, the play location for this league.
