SOCCER TOURNAMENT

 

Since there are only a limited amount of spots for the Soccer World Cup, we would encourage clubs to pick up the separate registration forms for the Soccer Tournament ASAP from the front desk of the YFS office and submit them. Once we have reached 16 forms we will no longer be accepting applications to participate. Hard Deadline of January 10th.

Here are some tips for a safe and happy Multicultural Week for all.

• All Clubs/Organizations must be officially recognized by the York Federation of Students, York University or SC&LD

• Please respect all the participants of YFS Multicultural Week.

• Clubs/organizations shall NOT disseminate any information which can be reasonably construed as being sexist, racist, homophobic, or any information which promotes hatred towards any group or individual.

• Restrict all your activities to the space provided to you. Do not encroach on your neighbor’s space and/or into access paths.

• Please do not relocate yourselves, all spots are final.

• If you are using props ensure that they do not extend above 5 feet from the ground.

• If the YFS Multicultural Week Organizers feel that a participant is not adhering to the spirit of the YFS Multicultural Week, that organization may be asked to leave the event.

• Please adhere to all MCW guidelines made available in the MCW booklet.

• Please ensure that, if applying for the soccer tournament, there are two members of differing genders on the field at all times.
