2017 Minor Soccer
Yes or No. Should there be Soccer this year?
Yes, it is cold outside, but it is 2017 and it’s time to think about summer and the minor soccer season. Did your children enjoy soccer last year? Are there things you would like to see done differently this year?
If you want to say “yes”, come to the meeting to show your interest.
Annual general meeting of the Beaverlodge and Area Minor Soccer Association.
Jan 25th at 7:00pm at the Beaverlodge Elementary School library.
The agenda includes:
- is there enough interest in soccer this year
- 2016 financial report
- 2017 registration fees
- nominating President and Treasurer for 2017
- other planning
Why you should come
- To help make Beaverlodge soccer happen again this year.
Volunteers are always needed to make things like this work.
- To make soccer better this year than it was last year.
Tell us what worked and what could be improved.
P.S. Are you thinking, “an annual board meeting sounds boring“, and “I don’t want to get involved“? Well, if too many people think those things, soccer may not be possible.

Can I get help with my child’s registration fees?
Yes. KidSport is an organization whose mandate is to help make sports accessible to all children. If you are interested in applying for assistance you can contact KidSport Grande Prairie for more information at 780-605-0229 or 1-888-91-4KIDS, or www.kidsport.ca. We will have KidSport applications available at registration night
When will players receive their T-SHIRTS and SCHEDULES?
Players will be receiving their Season Schedule and Team Shirt on Team Photo Night (April 20) from their Coach at the Beaverlodge Elementary School Gym. Coaches will be contacting each family to let them know their photo scheduled time to meet.
When will PHOTOS be taken?
Photos will be done by Keith Ramsey. Soccer Team Photo Night will take place at the Beaverlodge Elementary School on Monday, April 20th. Individual Photos will also be taken that night. Additional photos can be purchased. More information will be available to parents at registration night.
What EQUIPMENT do children need?
All children must wear shin guards, due to insurance policy rules and for safety. These should be worn under long soccer socks. Players must wear their Team T-Shirt to each game and appropriate Running shoes OR Soccer cleats. Additional dress should be weather appropriate.
How can I help?
We are always looking for New Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Board members, Event volunteers (ie. Year End Event). Please check the sign up sheets posted at registration night or call a member of the executive. This league would not happen without parents like you who volunteer their time. Please consider being one of those volunteers.
What are Parent’s Responsibilities?
Please ensure that your child arrives to the soccer games ready to play on time with the appropriate equipment including water bottles. Please help the soccer club by volunteering when requested. For the younger age levels, parents should stay and assist during practices. This is mandatory at the Tots age level: you must remain at the field for the duration of the practice/game. We encourage all parents, at all age levels to stay and enjoy the games – the kids really love it when you are there!
What if it is RAINING?
As a rule, the League plays unless it is Storming Heavily or there is Lightening. However, TOTS coaches are given the authority to decide as a group whether or not their age division will play.
In the event of a League decision to cancel a game due to inclement weather, the decision will be made at 5:00 pm and notification will begin shortly after. Notice of cancellations will be posted on this website (www.beaverlodgesoccer.com) and on the Facebook page. Team Coaches may notify the players on their team by phone.
