Volunteer coaches are needed for all levels. Without coaches we cannot have teams no matter how many children register.
Players must play in their appropriate age level unless exceptional circumstances are determined by our Technical Committee. For more information refer to - Policy 120: Player Movement (found under the Information/Polices, Rules and Regs Tab)

2) Premier - Edmonton (EMSA) League
There are no premier teamw for the 2022 outdoor season
The U11 premier league runs May and June with no provincial offering. The U13-19 premier league runs May, June and July with the premier provincials being held in mid-August.
Youth premier teams will be offered if, during the premier tryout registration, there is enough player and coach interest for these programs. There will be tryouts at the levels at which have sufficient registrations to offer premier. Any player not present at tryouts or who doesn't make the premier and wants to play on a Fort Saskatchewan Soccer community team needs to be registered for the community program during the registration period to ensure a place on the community roster.
Premier players/teams will have additional fees (for practices and league fees) which will be collected when the teams are finalized. Premier teams require greater commitment to games and practices than do the community teams. Premier players will be expected to attend extra practices and all games.
U3/5 and U7 Program Description ***New Format***:
All U3/U5, and U7 sessions will be in Fort Saskatchewan. We are following Alberta Soccer and Canada Soccer in running the Grassroots Program. We are teaching age appropriate basic fundamental movement skills. The emphasis is on having fun while learning the basic physical literacy skills. Information on the ASA Grassroots program can be found at Festival Play (PTM) - Alberta Soccer
ASA believes that players at this age level benefit more from learning soccer basics by keeping all players engaged by more ball touches. The ASA grassroots plan is to have no teams at these age levels.
Each group will be rotating through four stations which are:
Each station is 12-15 min to ensure maximum ball touches for each player.
