When was Fort Saskatchewan Soccer formed?
For many years there were two soccer groups in Fort Saskatchewan - Fort Saskatchewan Outdoor Soccer and Fort Saskatchewan Indoor Soccer. Also for many years members of the two groups thought that the children of Fort Saskatchewan were better and more efficiently served by one board. In December 2013 the two boards amalgamated into one soccer organization - Fort Saskatchewan Soccer.
Who runs Fort Saskatchewan Soccer?
We are volunteers who work together to provide soccer programs for the children of Fort Saskatchewan. Our outdoor season runs from May to mid-August depending on the program. Our indoor season runs from October to March.
Everyone from your fellow volunteer coaches to the volunteer executive board members give up personal time to contribute to making soccer a success in Fort Saskatchewan.
What is the Fort Saskatchewan Minor Sports Association?
FSMSA provides its member sports centralized governance, advocacy, administrative and financial support plus many other valuable resources which enable the member sports groups to continue providing top quality sports to the children of Fort Saskatchewan.
Financial integrity is ensured because FSMSA financial records are audited on a yearly basis by a public accounting firm registered with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta. The Fort Saskatchewan Minor Sports Association safeguards the financial and equipment assets of its member groups should any of its member sports be unable to operate for any reason.
City of Fort Saskatchewan and Community representatives regularly meet with Member Sports to consult on sport and recreational topics.
Currently Soccer and six other minor sports programs are banded together under the umbrella of the Fort Saskatchewan Minor Sports Association (FSMSA). The other sports include: baseball, gymnastics, hockey, judo, lacrosse and ringette.
The Fort Saskatchewan Minor Sports Association was incorporated as a Society in 1974. Soccer and hockey are two of the original member sports.
