  • May 26 Announcement
    The AB Government announced today its Open for Summer Plan, which includes an easing of restrictions on sport, including soccer.  Mill Woods Soccer is pleased to see the restrictions softening to allow for more normal type of soccer activity. We received zero lead time to these announcements; therefore, we are still working through the details on what is allowed.There is still more clarity that we are seeking from Alberta Soccer and EMSA, how other Provincial Health Orders may or may not impact the go forward plan. Nevertheless, we are pleased to have training and gameplay occurring again in our sport.Mill Woods Soccer will continue to communicate to its members as more information is received regarding AB’s Open for Summer Plan https://www.alberta.ca/enhanced-public-health-measures.aspx#open
    To restate, even though we all anticipated an easing of restrictions and were all hoping for them, we did not know what today’s announcement would entail. Therefore, we thank you for your understanding as we work through the details on what it means for soccer. Thank you all again for your understanding and hard work you are all doing to support soccer through these ever-changing times.Mill Woods Soccer Association Board of Directors

MWSA is excited to announce that registration for the 2021 Season will open March 15th.

We know this year holds lots of uncertainties, but we’re determined that we will have a 2021 Soccer Season. We are preparing for a number of different scenarios and we will continue to work together with the Edmonton Minor Soccer Association and Alberta Soccer to determine exactly what the season will look like.

Registration for the 2021 Regular Soccer season will be a bit different year. Due to the uncertainties at this time MWSA has decided to open initial registration, however full fees will not need to be paid at time of registration. We would like to have players register soon so we can get an understanding of the interest and numbers for the 2021 Season. Once we are certain the season will be able to proceed we will provide more details and put a call out for full fees.

 

Late registration begins on April 17th, 2021

All on time registrations within the city of Edmonton must get put on a team first before we can place any late registrations.  Therefore, late registrations are not guaranteed a spot on a team.

Historically we’ve been able to place all players who registered late.

Players will be placed on a team AS space is available on a first come first served basis. Age Reps do their very best to place all kids on teams.

Payment for players on the wait list will be required when we confirm a spot for your child.

IF WE CAN PLACE YOU:

The rest of the Registration must be completed on TeamSnap including payment at that time.

 

3 possible scenarios for the 2021 Scenarios:

PLEASE NOTE THAT SIGNING UP FOR THE SEASON YOU ARE AGREEING TO PARTICIPATE IN ALL 3 SCENARIOS IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR REFUND
POLICY WHICH ADDRESSES THE SEASONAL TIMELINE CAN BE FOUND HERE

SCENARIO #1 – Return to Train

  • Similar to 2020 season but run by coaches
  • 6 weeks

SCENARIO #2 – Return to Play (modified)

  • Similar to the indoor season format
  • Cohort limit of 50 (subject to change)
  • 6 weeks for U4 to U11
  • U7 to U11 12 sessions
  • U13 to U19 scheduled by EMSA Main
  • No tournaments or post season play

 SCENARIO #3 – Return to Soccer

  • Similar to 2019 season
  • Potential tournaments and post season play U11 & up

Please keep in mind that we are continuing to follow the direction of Edmonton Minor Soccer and Alberta Soccer under the guidance of Alberta Health Services. This means although this is our initial plan, it is subject to change.

Our goal moving forward is to ensure our players will not lose the prospect for development and will have the opportunity to get outside and continue to play the game that they love, though perhaps a little differently.

We will definitely need to lean on our membership in a volunteer capacity to help us with coaching, managing, and covering off on safety related duties that we will be required to do. Leading by example for our kids and following all related safety protocols will be everyone’s responsibility.

RESPECT IN SPORT – COACH PROGRAM

Mill Woods Soccer Association has partnered with the Respect Group to provide online education for coaches, referees and parents to help create a safe, healthy, and positive environment for children and youth involved in soccer.

The Respect in Sport Program assists coaches, referees, trainers and managers with identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment and bullying in sport.

The online course costs are covered when Coaching with MWSA and the curriculum is divided into six modules, which only take 2.5 hours, and can be completed at the user’s own pace. Once completed, certification is portable to other sports involved in Respect in Sport.

RESPECT IN SPORT – PARENT PROGRAM

The Respect in Sport Parent Program is a one-hour online module for parents/guardians, reinforcing their role in their child’s activities, encouraging positive sport behaviors, and providing insight into the various roles other individuals play, such as coaches and officials. This program empowers parents to ensure the safety of their children, encourage positive and effective communication, and to enhance a child’s overall enjoyment of soccer. The online course costs $12 and is transferable to other sports involved in Respect in Sport.
