Edmonton Minor Soccer | History | EMSA Spruce Grove


Spruce Grove Soccer was established in 1977 – formed as a society and then registered in Alberta in 1981. The objectives, as stated in the Bylaws upon formation, were to foster the development of the game of Association Football (sometimes called Soccer), in the Town of Spruce Grove. Changes have occurred since inception, the game is now always called soccer, the town is now a City, however, the objectives have not changed.

Soccer in Spruce Grove has grown from approximately 190 participants in 1981 to an enrollment of well over a 1000 in the 2014 summer outdoor season and an anticipated increase for the winter indoor program.
