Absolutely- we offer individual registration for all of our sports, both indoor and outdoor.
All you have to do is wait for the registration period to open, go to www.urbanrec.ca and you will be able to select the sport, night, skill level and location in which you want to play.
You can even join up with a small group of friends- just make sure you each select the same team name when registering (each individuals' team has a unique name).
Our indoor leagues play in schools and community centers throughout Vancouver. Additional facilities are located at UBC and the Marpole Curling club, as well as the Richmond Oval.
All of our spring/summer leagues will play on the Monday nights of long weekends. We do not play on Sundays of long weekends. Train & Play sessions will not occur on the Fridays of long weekends.
Our fall/winter leagues will not play on the Sundays of long weekends; however, some leagues will play on holiday Mondays (each league has different scheduling parameters depending on the location- please inquire about the specific league).
Urban Rec's refund policy is a simple one - we only offer refunds if we are able to resell your team/individual spot to another team (as there is limited space for all of our leagues/teams, and if you have registered for a spot, this prevents someone else from registering for it).
There is a $50 administrative charge for any team refund and a $25 charge for individuals. If we cannot re-sell your team spot than there are no refunds.
In the event that your spot can be re-sold prior to the league starting, the refund amount will be the full league price minus the admin fee. If the spot is re-sold after the league has started, the refund will be dependent on the pro-rated price that the spot is re-sold for minus the admin fee.
You will receive a key tag from your team captain during the first week of play if you registered by the registration deadline for the season you are playing in.
Additionally, key tags are released only to teams that have their rosters complete (i.e. all members have read and accepted the Urban Rec online waiver). If you have not yet received your key tag, first check in with your captain.
If you are a late addition to a team and started playing after the key tags were already distributed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have a key tag issued. Please include the following: your sport, league location and night of play, as well as your team name. Please note that you must be added to a team roster as well as have created an Urban Rec profile and indicated that you have read the online waiver for a keytag to be issued.
Outdoor soccer and flag football are scheduled to play rain or shine, and will NOT be cancelled due to rain.
In the event that weather conditions make the playing fields unplayable (this is determined at the discretion of the facilities that rent out the fields), Urban Rec will contact the team captains to let them know of the cancellation. If the team captains have not heard from a UR staff member, the teams can assume they will be playing.
The call of whether a league will play that night will be made at 4:30pm. We do visit location sites to help make this decision as well as consult with other league associations across the city. If play is cancelled, captains will be notified via e-mail.
If you are worried about the weather, first wait until after 4:30pm, then contact your team captain to see if they have any news, and lastly, give our weather hotline a call at 604-878-RAIN (7246). If there is no news, you will be playing.
