To provide an environment of fairness and equality while fostering the competitive spirit of those who choose to play the great game of soccer.
Calgary Northside Soccer (CNS) is a city league indoor and outdoor soccer program. CNS offers this program to youth from 4 to 18 years, following the age guidelines set out by Calgary Minor Soccer Association (CMSA). Outdoor CMSA U8, U10, U12, U14, U16, and U18 age guidelines are followed for both the indoor and outdoor seasons, as they are for the indoor season U6 and U8 developmental teams.
The purpose of CNS is to provide youth between the ages of 6 to 18 of all communities an opportunity to actively participate in the sport of soccer in a safe, fun and learning environment. CNS is dedicated to the development of positive life skills for all involved through the playing of both outdoor and indoor soccer. CNS encourages the development of soccer as a lifetime activity, focusing on the health and wellness of the participants. We aim to provide a soccer program that encourages self-esteem, self-discipline, personal responsibility, teamwork, good sportsmanship, perseverance and physical fitness for all players, coaches, and referees.
The particular focus of programs developed by CNS will be to ensure players experience the following:
- The fun of playing and learning the game of soccer
- Competitive play on a local, city, and provincial level
- Improvement of individual skills and team play
- Opportunities to meet new people and make new friendships
- A sense of accomplishment as an individual player and as a teammate.
In addition to the soccer sports program, CNS will also provide opportunities for youth and adults to actively participate as referees, team coaches, and team managers.
The CNS Committee manages our program. The role of the committee is to develop policies, procedures, and to deliver the soccer sports program to the community.
