Good morning club president’s, technical directors and club administrators,

As communicated by the Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services, no changes will be made to the current restrictions in place. ASA’s suspension of all in-person soccer activities will continue until further notice.

We know that you have questions regarding the indoor and outdoor season, please see the information below:

2020-2021 Indoor Season

  • Games will continue to be cancelled until the suspension on competition play has lifted.
    • Should we return to soccer in a phased in approach, such as Return to Train, CMSA scheduled field time for games will be allocated to the scheduled home teams of each game so teams can use the time and space for training.
    • CMSA league games will resume immediately when able to do so. For example: IF the government announces on Feb. 1 that games can resume on Feb. 2, 2021, CMSA games will resume on Feb. 2, 2021 with the scheduled games.
  • The season has been extended until April 15, 2021.

2021 Outdoor Season

  • The 2021 Program Calendar and League Structure will be communicated as the 2021-2023 Technical Plan is published.

Although yesterday’s announcement is disappointing, CMSA remains ready to resume the season when the public health authorities ease the current restrictions and state that it is safe for sport to resume.

Thank you, CMSA

Good afternoon club administrators and technical directors,

After reviewing the COVID-19 restrictions, CMSA has made a correction to our proposed start date for the winter portion of the 2020-2021 Indoor Season. The league will restart on Jan. 13, 2021... This is due to the mandated closure of facilities until Jan. 13, 2021.

The schedule for the winter portion of the season is now live on calgaryminorsoccer.com. The schedule has been adjusted to reflect the shortened season and to accommodate as many games as possible within the timeframe. Teams may be scheduled to play back-to-back days and the U7-U8 leagues have been extended until March 7, 2021.

CMSA will communicate with you accordingly should government measures restrict the season any further.

From the staff at CMSA, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season and we look forward to getting back to the soccer field in the new year.

Thank you,  CMSA

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.

Regards,  CMSA
