CMSA LEAGUE (with Calgary Minor Soccer Association) for U7-U19 League Players Details:
After an extensive review of the soccer landscape, and consultation with a cross section of stakeholders including CMSA clubs, parents and our governing bodies; Alberta Soccer and Canada Soccer, CMSA has developed a 2 year plan to implement a revised league structure to best support age appropriate player development. From conversations and meetings with members CMSA has heard that they need to put children first, the need to end a ‘win at all cost mentality’ and the desire to have CMSA use best practices in long-term player development. There are many revisions planned that CMSA will start rolling out this upcoming Outdoor 2020 Season, and continue to roll out for future seasons. This phased approach will allow clubs to adjust their business practices and provide a number of opportunities for CMSA and clubs to communicate the changes to parents.
A few highlighted items for the new league structure being rolled out this Outdoor 2020:
*For U9-U12 Outdoor season runs April to September, Summer break starts June 29th, and ends August 28th. September play is part of the regular league and runs August 29th to September 27th The Fall season is part of the league and is not optional. Families get their summer holidays back! CWSC will offer game based sessions during the summer if you are hanging around but there is no pressure to attend. Take your summers back and enjoy your family time! There are no City Finals or Final Four or Provincials for these age groups.
*For U13-U19 Outdoor season runs April through July 30th. Tiers 4/5 end league play July 5th. Fall season is optional at this age group but they can register as a team on a team by team basis, and runs August 29th to September 27th. This will give August as a summer break unless teams qualify for provincials. We will continue game based sessions until mid August if you are in the city. Go try school sports! There is post season competitions for these age groups. Please see our next slide for specific dates for the level of competition.
A significant change to be aware of, CMSA will not accommodate any rescheduling requests for the month of May unless received in writing by April 10. Please make sure your returning teams/coaches are aware of this as early as possible or encourage teams to avoid tournament travel during this month.
