Men's Competitive Team
We are excited to announce the expansion of our Men’s program. In April 2016, Calgary West Soccer Club signed an agreement to join forces with Lads Club to offer an expanded Men’s program with the stability of an established Men’s club. The merged Men’s program is now known as Calgary West Lads Club.
Lads Club at the time of the agreement was the largest Men’s club in Calgary with 8 teams that play in the following age categories: Open Age, Over 35, Over 45, and Over 55. Lads Club has been one of the most successful clubs in Calgary at the Men’s level in all age categories.
Both, Calgary West and Lads Club joined forces to offer a Men’s program that will bring youth and experience together to create a competitive environment and allow Calgary West minor players to stay with their Club as they transition into the Men’s program. We aim to provide players an opportunity to play within a stable environment at their desired level of play.
This past outdoor was our first season together and was a great success throughout all the age categories. Our top Open team earned promotion to the Premier Division in CUSA. Our Masters Premier team (Over 35) won Gold at the provincial championships as well. This Indoor season, we further expanded our Open program to four teams by having Freemen FC merge with Calgary West Lads Club to offer a Division 4 team for the Indoor season that will have a few of our U18 players joining that team. Freemen FC is an independent team that has been playing since 1998 in CUSA. This Indoor season we will be offering nine teams as follows: four Open Age teams, three O35 teams, and two Over 45 teams. Our Open teams are in this indoor are in Divisions 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Calgary West Lads Club is always recruiting players for all of their teams throughout the year. We are a Club that takes pride in playing competitive at all levels while also providing an atmosphere for players to have fun and enjoy the social aspect of being a part of the Club. Even though we are the biggest Men’s club in Calgary, we are a tight knit group that take pride in the Club. If you are interested in joining Calgary West Lads Club or have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com as we look forward to hearing from you.
Women's Classics Over 35
Calgary West Banyana Banyana (“the Girls, the Girls”) Over 35 Classics Premier
In just over two years of competitive soccer in the CWSA and many of us starting soccer later in life, Banyana Banyana have progressed from CWSC Women’s Academy to Community Recreational Soccer Leagues (Scenic Acres/Silver Springs/MacEwan Sandstone) to Cochrane Recreational Soccer League to CWSA Classics 1 and now to the Premier Division.
With their 1st place finishes in 2012-13 Indoor and 2013 Outdoor seasons, Banyana Banyana kicked off the 2013-14 indoor season with the Kickstart Tournament, placing 1st in the Classics Division.
As with any team moving up a division, the challenge for Banyana Banyana has been to transition their game with more pace and intensity.
Currently sitting in 7th spot in the 10 team Premier Division with a win and five ties, the team is adjusting to the challenge as the season progresses.
