Good evening Club Presidents, Technical Directors and Administrators,
Wow, what a ride the last three months have been! With the return of soccer around the corner, Calgary Minor Soccer Association (CMSA) wants to thank you for your continued patience, resilience and adaptability since the world pandemic that is COVID-19, impacted the soccer community in March. It has been a long road full of uncertainty and CMSA is proud of the way our Calgarian soccer community has handled it.
To reiterate last night’s Alberta Soccer Call:
Phase 1 – Return to Train, implemented on or after June 12, 2020. Teams may return to the field IF:
Clubs have completed Canada Soccer’s Risk Assessment Tool and have received approval from Canada Soccer and Alberta Soccer.
Teams have been registered with CMSA in Goalline.
Players have been uploaded onto teams in Goalline.
Player waivers and declaration have been signed with parental/guardian consent and returned to CMSA. Any player who has not completed these documents will NOT be allowed on the field. Documents include:
CMSA Player Waiver and Proof of Age;
Alberta Soccer COVID-19 Waiver;
Alberta Soccer COVID-19 Declaration;
Phase 2 – Return to Modified Games, implemented on or after June 19, 2020. Currently, we are waiting on documentation from Alberta Soccer, but teams may begin to train in cohorts of 50 people. CMSA will have more information on cohort training and the process to register cohorts next week.
Phase 3 – Return to Soccer, date to be determined.

As was said on the call last night, we are hurrying up to slow down. We have one chance to return to the field safely and we must walk before we can run. CMSA will continue to communicate plans going forward into Phase 2 and 3 of Alberta Soccer’s guidelines.
If you have any questions, please connect with me.

Good evening Club Presidents, Technical Directors and Club Administrators,
The positive news from this afternoon’s Government of Alberta (GOA) update on Stage 2 of the Relaunch Strategy continues to bring us one step closer to the complete return of soccer, as the government announced the easing of restrictions on sport and recreation. This news has created an excitement in the sports community and Calgary Minor Soccer Association is elated at GOA’s decision to place sports in Stage 2 of the Relaunch Strategy. See the attached document for more information on Stage 2’s Return to Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Guidelines, or visit alberta.ca.
This news is incredibly positive and encouraging for soccer as it allows larger groups to convene and for competition to resume. As we continue to digest this information and communicate with Alberta Soccer Association (ASA), we will provide you with updates on the resumption of competition activity. As previously discussed with you, CMSA has a quickstart program ready to implement and we will connect with the Technical Directors on this in the coming days.
A few additional reminders:
- ASA Return-to-Soccer call on June 10 - Required for the technical and administrative lead of each organization.
- Please continue to connect with Cory regarding the placement of your teams and the registration of players.
- Parents must complete the waiver and declaration for their children before they can return to the field. The waiver and declaration will be provided by CMSA and it must be completed by parents via CMSA’s Goalline system.
We look forward to connecting with you tomorrow evening during the ASA Return-to-Soccer call.
Hope everyone is well. The last batch of refunds for the recreational program was completed June 1, 2020 and and June 6, 2020 for the competitive program. Refunds were processed against the credit card that the original payment was made against. The refund should show up on your statement or transaction history in the next couple of weeks.
Without any paid administration or employees, CNS was able to process a full refund. THANK YOU all for your patience while refunds were processed by our volunteers.
Stay safe and healthy, CNS/PASS Administration
