Malmo is home to a variety of outdoor sports that utilize the Malmo community league facilities. Malmo residents are welcome to use of the grounds and equipment available in the outdoor shed. From May 1 to October 1, Malmo residents are especially encouraged to enjoy the activities and meet neighbours on the Wednesday evening social night or weekends when sand courts and other facilities are currently held for our use.
Outdoor Soccer Registration 2018
Registration for the 2018 outdoor community soccer season begins February 1.
The outdoor season runs during May & June. Each week, U7 to U19 players have two games and may also have one practice. The U5 group has one combined practice/game per week. It is tons of fun and a great way to meet kids and families in the neighbourhood. This season, children born between 1999 and 2013 are eligible to play.
Changes to the program:
- Age groups are now organized by odd years (eg. U5), not even years (eg. U6) to better align with provincial competitions.
- A volunteer deposit of $100 per family is required. Once your volunteer requirement is met, your deposit cheque will be destroyed.
- A $50 late fee will automatically be charged by the online system for any player not registered online and verified at a registration session before Monday, February 26.

Soccer Coaches & Assistant Coaches
- We are always looking for soccer coaches. Having Malmo coaches means the kids can play on a Malmo team.
- Coaching is fun and a great way to be involved with your child and community.
- You don't need any experience. Malmo Community League will pay for coaching courses.
- For more information or to let us know you want to coach, contact Lisa at email@example.com.
- Soccer Referees & Assistant Referees (linesmen)
- These are paid positions. This is a great way to earn some money and get work experience.

- Mon to Fri 3-9 pm,
- Weekends & Holidays 12-9 pm
- In adverse weather or poor ice conditions (temperature below -20 C) the rink may be closed.
- When the change room is closed and the rink lights are off, the rink is closed.
- Notification signs from our rink manager may be posted at the rink.
- If you scrape the ice yourself please ensure you shovel it off the rink because it can set up like concrete. This greatly interferes with our rink master's efforts to provide us with a good and safe ice surface.
- Please report any rink facility damage to our facilities manager.
Community League members are encouraged to use the local outdoor skating rink behind the hall. Please ensure that your current skate tag is visible at all times. Skate tags come with your community league membership. Information on obtaining community league memberships is available on the memberships page.
Please use the ice in a responsible and shared manner. Rules are posted at the rink and the change room for rink users / parents to review. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure their children have suitable equipment to safely enjoy their hockey and skating activities.
Malmo Community League does not currently reserve ice times or rent the ice facilities to outside groups. However, if you have an ice related activity that requires a rink booking to make it happen, give us a call. A great example of this is the Winter Carnival.
