Welcome to EMSA Spruce Grove!

Indoor 2020/ 2021 Soccer Registration 

Online registration now CLOSED. Please contact the office if you are looking to register your child for this season.

IMPORTANT note about COMMUNITY FEES:

Please note that due to having 12 Community players on a roster, COVID-19 PPE expenses such as masks and sanitizer for all coaches, and the per team cleaning costs at the Edmonton facilities, there is a notable increase in fees. 

It is important to remember, Athletes should limit the number of sports cohorts/mini leagues they belong to during Stage 2 of the Government of Alberta Relaunch Strategy.  Players are not recommended to be participating in multiple sport cohorts unless physical distancing and other requirements are met.

 Format for Indoor 2020-2021

For Minis U4 to U7 SGSA In House

  1. Teams will have a maximum roster of 10 players with 4 teams sharing the field.
  2. Teams will be reseeded after the two week Christmas break.
  3. All programming will be held at the TLC in Spruce Grove.

For Community U9 – U19 

  1. EMSA is looking to form cohorts with 4 teams with a maximum of 12 players on each team…. To keep us below the 50 maximum cohort set out by Albert Health (If AHS increases the Sport Cohort number, we can have more players per team or increase the number of teams). Coaches will have to mask and socially distance for all practices and games to remain excluded from the cohort number.
  2. The leagues will be  round robin formats  and we will re-seed the cohort teams after a two-week break (quarantine), so teams will get an opportunity to play others, not just the same 3 teams.  We will look at Natural breaks such as December to re-seed
  3. ALL BOARDED GAMES will only be 45 minutes in duration 
  4. Tournaments may not be able to organize due to the two-week quarantine period needed to re-cohort the groups.  If AHS increase the cohort number from 50-100 things could change.
  5. Trialists or Guest players will not be accepted due to the Cohort restrictions
  6. All parents, players, organization will need to be ready to discontinue the program if Alberta Health Services cancels the Cohort system.
  7. Every team must have a Covid Contact Person that will be responsible to contact the EMSA office for any reports of possible Covid exposure and follow all protocols from AHS.
For Premier U9 – U19  
 
  1.  Teams will carry a maximum of 20 players with 2 teams forming the cohort
  2. Teams will play two games (RR) against each other in one week and then go to 14 days of training
  3. After the 14 days teams come back to play in a new cohort of two teams two more games
  4. This will continue until the end of the season or when  the situation with the virus change.
  5. Please note that due to the 14 day isolation period between changing cohorts there will be NO SET SCHEDULE and games and practices could change every week.
  6. Tournaments may not be able to organize due to the two-week quarantine period needed to re-cohort the groups.  If AHS increase the cohort number from 50-100 things could change.
  7. Trialists or Guest players will not be accepted due to the Cohort restrictions

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.
