Learn about using and installing portable goals.

All indoor and outdoor team sports for people 22 years of age and older are suspended until further notice.

Indoor and outdoor sport for people under 22 years of age can continue, but participants must maintain a physical distance of 3 metres from one another, and activities should be low risk of transmitting COVID-19 (e.g. individual activities, group training that maintains physical distance). 

Games, tournaments and competitions for teams are not allowed. 

Spectators are also not permitted during any sporting events.

Parks staff provide a mix of outdoor sport field goal posts to accommodate a variety of sports, including:

  • fixed and portable mini soccer goals
  • fixed and portable regulation sized soccer goals
  • portable field hockey goals
  • fixed football and rugby goals

To cut down on unauthorized play that damages the goal areas, we have started using more portable goals, which are easy to move after games to a secured fixture.

For this system to work, everyone must help to make sure the goals are locked up and put away after games. It is the responsibility of the last home team of the day to ensure the goals are properly secured.

Parks staff will be monitoring the use of portable field goals. Failure to follow the locking procedures may result in a suspension of specific field permits.

Parks staff supply locks and keys. Keys can be picked up from the Athletic Services Coordinator by calling 604-501-5174.

To report missing, defective or unsafe locking systems, call the City's service request line at 604-501-5050.
