We will be hosting 10 soccer teams this spring (three teams at U4, one team at U6, two U8 Boys teams, one U8 Girls team, one U10 Boys, one U12 Boys, and one U18 Girls. It has been very difficult to find coaches this year; we rely solely on volunteers to coach, usually parents from the team. Unfortunately, we were unable to accommodate all of our registered players due to a lack of coaches; sadly we lost two U6 teams by sending the players elsewhere or refunding money and the players will not play this year. Luckily most teams have parent volunteers coaching and fortunately we have some teams being coached by Grant MacEwan University students who came to the call for volunteers when our soccer director asked. We truly appreciate everyone who stepped forward to coach and assistant coach this year!
Soccer is scheduled to start the first week of May. You should hear from your coach by the last week of April. If you have any soccer inquires please contact our Soccer Director, Jennifer, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
