2021 Outdoor Season Update – June 4th, 2021

Following the latest public health announcement, Alberta’s Open for Summer Plan which allows for the return of youth sport, SGSA is excited to provide updates for our programs.

Stage 1 – Starting on Tuesday, June 1 – Teams were able to return to train in the same physically-distanced 10-person groups as prior to the latest interruption of youth sport.

Stage 2 – Tentatively June 10th – Youth sport will see further reduction in restrictions allowing for normal training AND league play. EMSA has set July 5th to beginning of Sept to fit in a 15 game schedule for all youth divisions.

Stage 3 – Two weeks from 70% vaccination – No changes to youth sport as all restrictions have been removed in Stage 2.

A Bit About Us

Spruce Grove Soccer Association AKA EMSA Spruce Grove Soccer or SGSA is part of the Edmonton Minor Soccer Association and as such is dedicated to the development of youth soccer.

We are proud to be able to provide soccer programs for all ages and skill levels including our Premier program, the Spruce Grove Saints, our house leagues for U4 through U7, our community program in which teams play in the EMSA league U9 through U19 and our Adult Program.

Part of our program is the development of referees, they truly are the third team on the field! A referee needs to not only understand the rules of the game, but they also need to be able to control the game and have the confidence to do so. We offer courses, refresher courses, and mentorship to aid in the development of our ref’s.
