2021 Minor Soccer
The Beaverlodge and Area Minor Soccer Association organizes outdoor soccer practice and games for the children of Beaverlodge, Hythe, Wembley, Valhalla, and the surrounding areas. Children from ages 3 to 16 participate during the spring soccer season from the end of April to the end of June.
Weather Policy: We play unless it is Storming Heavily or there is Lightening. However, U5 director may decide whether or not the age division will play.
In the event of a League decision to cancel a game due to 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.
Soccer is Canceled
for the 2021 season.
Dear Parents, Kids and Sponsors,
It is with great sadness that the Executive Board is cancelling soccer this year. Unfortunately due to COVID19 restrictions we are unable to provide a fun recreational sport. As of today we are in Phase 2 and a half. In that outdoor sports can gather up to 10 people, including a coach, however there would still have to be a 2 metre distance and NO games. Our TOTS division or U5 would not happen as we require parents to accompany their children to every session. We also require a month to set everything up (sponsors, tshirts ordered, pictures arranged etc) and feel we will be unable to provide the proper amenities to our kids without this time.
We are taking this time to work on some collaborations for next year (stay tuned!) and a new sponsor for Tshirts.
We are also going to work on building two soccer pitches by the Bike Park. Last year we ran into some unexpected surprises so are moving forward with it this year. Coach Liaison Stefan Caers is taking the lead on that. We will keep you posted with updates and possibly a holler for volunteers for help.
Chin up! Soccer next year for sure!

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 26 2019) 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 April 26th. Individual Photos will also be taken that night. A team photo is included in the registration fee. Additional photos can be purchased.
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 lace-up 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 U5 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, the U5 age division will be decided separately by U5 Division Coach Director.
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.
