For those playing at the Hornets' Nest one parking pass per team (coach ONLY) will be emailed to you shortly. Please carpool with your assistants. On the presentation of your parking pass, you will be able to park in the spaces reserved for Coaches in the Hornets' Nest parking lot. If for some reason you don’t receive your pass by the week of Soccer Day please e-mail the office.
Parking for parents is available on a first-come-first-served basis at the Hornets' Nest and up the hill at Louis Riel High School. Important: You must obey the no-parking signs on Bearbrook Road. Every year people park in the no-parking zones, and every year the City issues tickets.
There will be a drop-off zone at the Hornets' Nest for drivers to drop off players, fans, lawn-chairs, coolers, etc. once the Hornets' Nest parking lot is full. Drivers must then park in one of the other parking locations.
For those playing at the Potvin fields, there is no preferred coach parking. Parking is available just past the mini fields on Canotek Road and also BEHIND the Potvin Arena on Shefford Road.

Cars parking in marked parking spaces will be ticketed and/or towed.
