City Strike – Some Games Moved

There is a current City of Toronto Labour Strike that affects our permits and where we can play our games. It also means no grass cutting, garbage collection, etc. We are still hosting games however we are required to reschedule some games – please check with your captains and on the web site to confirm your game location. For example games previously scheduled at Sunnybrook and Eglinton Flats will or have been moved until the strike is over.

We will adjust field locations on a week-to-week basis. So next week’s games have not yet been rescheduled, as we are hoping the strike will end soon and we do not have to alter any further games. Keep checking the website for updates!

During this period of the city strike, fields will be tight and preferred locations will decrease – your patience, understanding, and Spirit of the Game when on the fields are greatly appreciated.

Please note – TJSL and clinics will continue as planned during the City strike

At the clinic league you will get expert instructions on improving your skills, basic team concepts, zones (offence & defense), strategies, rules and much more. Each week will provide a clinic on a specific topic for the first hour, which will then be followed by a scrimmage to practice those concepts.

Sue Holland is the May Volunteer of the Month.

As a member of the TUC Social Committee, Sue was a key leader in hosting the Steam Whistle Boat Bash on May 30. A lot of effort went into this event; things like posters, tickets, promotions, sales, logistics, music, and prizing….. and she was a big part of that. The result was our best social event in years and everyone who attended had a blast.

Sue is also a regular volunteer with TUC tournaments and clinics and recently helped with our women’s tournament in March. She is an active participant in all things TUC and we can’t thank her enough for all of her contributions. Thanks Sue!

Are you interested in volunteering for TUC committees or helping out with player development? Contact

Each V.O.M. will receive $50 Scally’s Dollars that can be used towards any purchase at Scallywags.
