2015 SWOSL Season
Registering a New Team - 2016
The South Western Ontario Soccer League (SWOSL) is a men's soccer league that has had teams from Middlesex County, Elgin County, and the City of London. The league's season normally includes a 16-20 game regular season (depending on the number of teams) and an end of season playoff. All games are played on weekday evenings between Monday and Thursday with regular season games generally starting at 7pm. The season normally begins in early May and ends with the playoff finals in early September. The league has a low tolerance for unsportsmanlike or violent behaviour, and has a system of increasing suspensions and fines for players who accumulate yellow and red cards.
If you are interested in entering a team in SWOSL for 2016, your main responsibilities would include:
1. Obtaining a field for your home games.
2. Providing your own jerseys (see the league's policy on conflicting colours).
3. Paying the referee fees for your home games.
4. Paying the annual registration fee of $300.
5. Submitting a completed roster using the documents found under the Handout section.
SWOSL employs a referee co-ordinator during the season who supplies a referee for each game. The annual fee paid by each team covers all of the league's costs for the year, including insurance. If you would like more detailed information on SWOSL, you can review the league constitution or you can contact the league using the email mailbox. Both of these items can be found on the left hand side of the page.

All of the 2015 standings and statistics have been added to the History section of the website, which can be found on the left hand side of the page.
