Stadacona Porteous Field (open mid May until mid September)

 
Located at CFB Halifax, Porteus Field is 110 yards long and was designed for the Canadian Football League rules. Football is no longer played in the Canadian Forces with the exception of the annual mini-Gray cup(played between the Ward Room and the Fleet Club).

Located at 12 Wing Shearwater the soccer field is circled by a crusher dust running track. The Shearwater Ball Field is a clay infield and is set up for Women's and Men's Fast-pitch, Ladies Orthodox and Men's and Mixed Slo-Pitch. The field has 2 closed in dug outs for your protection from the weather and sun and has lights.
 
 
*We ask that officials review field conditions prior to allowing games/practices to proceed, and that conditions continue to be monitored for the entire period of time that you are using your field. If there is any risk at all that a player could be injured or if there is the potential of damaging field turf, we ask that you do not play and that you do not use excessive means to prepare fields for play. THIS INCLUDES THE REMOVAL OF INFIELD MIX.
 


Shearwater Ball Hockey Court

The Molson Military Community Recreation Park, which was generously funded by Molson Canada is a massive hit within the Shearwater community.  This multi-purpose facility will provide another valuable physical fitness venue for use by Canadian Forces members and their families. All ages and skill levels can enjoy this fast growing sport. Between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m, military personnel have priority over the ball hockey court use for military physical fitness classes or events.
