Before registering a player for the indoor soccer season please read the following information to determine the appropriate league and associated commitment level which best suits your and the player's level of interest.
Player placement in our Community Programs is based on a "first come/first served" basis. When there is more than one team in a particular program there will be player assessments in order to balance the teams' skill level. Practice times are set by each teams' coach(es).
U3 to U9 schedules are determined by Fort Saskatchewan Soccer.
U11 to U19 game schedule are determined by the league(s) in which our teams play. League information is also subject to changes by the leagues(s) in which our teams play.
Please also see our detail description pages (tabs) for more information about programs for each U-level.
U3, U5 and U7 level players will play once a week at the Dow Centennial Centre (DCC) in Fort Saskatchewan.
U9 level players will play twice weekly (one practice and one game) at the DCC.
U11, U13, U15, U17 and U19 community players play on guest teams in the Edmonton (EMSA) Community League. Their practices are at the DCC and their games are in Edmonton.
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.
Youth Premier Teams
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.
