House League vs. Inter-city

 

What is the difference?

 

  • House league starts at U5 and ends at U8. House league is a mix of teams with both girls and boys playing on the same team, who play only in Deux-Montagnes. House-league teams receive full uniforms they get to keep after the season is over.
  • Intercity starts at U9. The inter-city teams from Deux-Montagnes play in the Laurentides region against many other cities. Players in inter-city get to keep only their shorts and socks but must return their jersey at the end of every season.

 

What does the “U” stand for in, for example, “U12”?

 

  • The “U” stands for the English word “under” showing that all children in that category are under a specific age for the current year. For example, for “U12” most children, depending on birth-date are 11 years old.

 

What is the minimum age for house-league?

 

  • Players registering for U5 must be at least 4 years of age by May 1st.

 

Can my child stay in house-league even though they reach 8 years of age?

 

  • No. We do not offer house-league above U8 because of a lack of players to form several teams.

 

Can my child play with a younger group to stay with their friends?

 

  • As per the rules and regulations we follow by the Soccer Federation of Québec, all players are required to play on teams based on their birth-date, unless they are playing with a team whose players are older than them (and then other rules can prevent it).
