With regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, Calgary Northside Soccer will follow the guidelines set out by the governing bodies of soccer.

A message on behalf of Calgary Minor Soccer Association President, Lyle Waldren, and Executive Director, Susan Cress:

Good afternoon Club Presidents, Technical Directors and Club Administrators,

In the upcoming days CMSA will be working to prepare for a late start date and revising our league to ensure the 2020 Outdoor Season will go forward. It is evident that our timelines will need to be adjusted in order to allow clubs time to complete their evaluations. To accommodate this unique situation, we will revise our timelines and scheduling practices to continue our preparation for the outdoor season and begin with modifications on our website.

Following discussions with the City of Calgary, the Calgary West Soccer Centre will be closed until further notice as part of the City’s mandated closure of all fitness facilities. At this time, the centre will undergo an extensive sanitization regimen so it will be ready to reopen when the time comes.

CMSA is reviewing Alberta Health Services policies, best practices and standards of care for the soccer community and of course with the own health and wellness of CMSA staff in mind. Until further notice, CMSA will remain open with staff operating out of our office.

CMSA will continue to be in contact with Canada Soccer and Alberta Soccer regarding the delivery of sanctioned soccer activities.

Banding together the soccer community, we wish our clubs, their membership and staff well throughout this evolving and challenging time.

The player evaluation schedule for CNS registered participants will be from March 28 - April 14.

Parents need to check this website regularly in the event of a change or addition to the date, time, or location of sessions.

Players are to arrive at the designated field 30 minutes prior to the start in order to register and warm-up. Appropriate soccer apparel is required and no hazardous items (watches, earings, jewellery, etc) will be allowed on the field. Please come prepared to play with shin guards (covered with socks), water bottle, and outdoor soccer shoes / running shoes.

All initial evaluations are being held indoors at:
Calgary North Soccer Centre:  4404 14th Street Northeast

Events will be crossed out after they have been completed.

Calgary, AB – Calgary Northside Soccer Club (“CNS”) and FC Metro Soccer Club (“FC Metro”) announce a soccer collaboration to provide quality service delivery to the soccer community in the Northwest of Calgary. CNS is a leading Club in the Northwest of Calgary including competing at provincial championships and also representing Alberta at the National Level. FC Metro has emerged as a strong grassroots club focused delivering quality skill development and strong coach education to communities in the Northwest. The collaboration will have a clear goal to provide greater resources and an improved overall experience for players.

CNS will now be the Official Community Provider for the communities of Kincora, Sherwood, Sage Hill, Nolan Hill, Citadel and Hamptons and provide soccer from U4 to U19. This large grassroots base will allow for like minded and like skilled players to be playing together on a wider range of teams within the combined larger entity.

CNS is very pleased to have this collaboration that provides a larger player pool so kids can play at the right level, as well as allowing the more competitive player to achieve their potential.  CNS will always remain focused on a fun based, developmental grassroots soccer program in the community and serving the community needs.”

CNS will also be partnered with and supported by Calgary Foothills Soccer Club (“Foothills”) as their preferred partner for the eventual Alberta Youth League, as well as elite development pathways offered by Foothills.

Foothills has some unique resources in the City of Calgary that CNS will be supported by and have access, such as:

  • The only full-size Fieldhouse with an international size, soccer specific field that is 84,000 square feet and also has FIFA Grade A Fieldturf.
  • The only USL2 (formerly the PDL) team in Calgary and Alberta. The USL 2 league is a league of over 70 teams in Canada and the United States and Foothills is the reigning National Champions.
  • A United Women’s Soccer league team (“UWS”) which is currently the Conference Champion. The UWS is Division 2 in the United States Soccer Federation under the NWSL.

CNS will continue to run programs U4 to U19 in the community.  As a player gets older, U17 Tier 1 players will have additional developmental pathways open to them to achieve their full potential.  Players can opt to play within CNS or be invited to the USL2 or UWS developmental program.
