Arsenal (U11-19) Community Program
U11-19 Community Players are entered into the Edmonton Minor Soccer Association (EMSA) league as a guest team. All games are played in Edmonton and all practices are in Fort Saskatchewan at the DCC. EMSA re-pools all teams twice during the season to ensure that competing teams are of a similar skill level. Teams are then placed into tiers from 4 through 9. The third round of games also includes the ability for all teams to compete for a place in the Edmonton City Finals around the end of February in whatever tier the team happens to end up playing in.
When there is more than one Fort Saskatchewan team in a particular program there will be player assessments in order to equalize/balance teams' skill level at the beginning of the season.
Games schedules are determined by EMSA. League information is also subject to changes by EMSA.

Arsenal (U11-19) Youth Premier Program
Youth premier teams will be offered if, during the premier tryout registration, there is enough player and coach interest for these programs.
There will be tryouts at the levels at which have sufficient registrations to offer premier. Any player not present at tryouts or who doesn't make the premier cut can play on a Fort Saskatchewan Soccer community team if registered for the community program during the registration period.
Premier players/teams will have additional fees (for practices and league fees) which will be collected when the teams are finalized. Premier teams require greater commitment to games and practices than do the community teams. Premier players will be expected to attend extra practices and all games.
Fort Saskatchewan Soccer supports Soccer for Life and supports the expansion of adult programs. In the past seasons, Fort Saskatchewan Soccer had a competitive men's team which played in EDSA and a coed recreational group which plays at the DCC. Our adult competitive and coed recreational programs will be continuing in the indoor season.
