Soccer Registration 2020 Season

Registration will open for February 15th, and run until March 15th.  We will also need help from the community to fulfill Volunteer roles to assist throughout the season, including Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Managers, and Field Coordinators.  In addition, if you would like to assist in other areas around the community, please indicate your interest on the registration form. 




This year we are excited to announce that we are engaging Triple-Meg for the spring season.  They run youth soccer programs around the city, and will be helping in a few areas - pre-season coaching clinics, on-field coaching support for U4/U6 throughout the season, and Saturday morning practices for U8/U10/U13 (subject to interest).  




Season Start Dates:

U4 - Monday, May 4-June 22nd (8 weeks)

U6 - Wednesday, May 6-June 24th (8 weeks)

U8, U10, U13 - April 27th to June 24th

A couple of notes for registration:

- Please have your MPCA Membership number handy

- If you’re not a current member, please register for a membership

- I will my best to accommodate friend requests.  Please indicate this on the registration form, but due to the sheer number of requests and the logistics necessary I can’t guarantee that every request will be handled, and it may be necessary to wait until the season start to discuss with coaches.

- Please consider volunteering with soccer or the association!  I have spots available to indicate interest

PLEASE DON'T PLANT TREES ON CITY PROPERTY WITHOUT CITY PERMISSION

Given that we recently had a local community member planted some trees in the green space on 20th Ave (Dog Park) and on the boulevard the City has provided the following key point:

  • Trees and shrubs are regulated under the Street Bylaw and under section 68(6) : No owner or occupant of private property adjacent to a Street shall plant any trees, plants, or shrubbery of any nature on the Boulevard without first obtaining a line assignment and excavation permit from the Director, Roads. – Essentially to plant on a city boulevard you need permission from the Roads Department
  • All trees planted by Urban Forestry are sourced in accordance with the Clean Plants Program. This insures that the plant material we receive is free from pests and disease. The introduction of unknown trees and shrubs into a greenspace could potentially bring pest or disease that has an overall impact on the urban forest.
  • Urban Forestry would not be aware of the “ random trees” so they would not be added into our inventory system. Our tree inventory is how we determine maintenance schedules, watering schedules, and regular inspections for health and risk.
  • Appropriate placement and planting is essential so there is no interference or damage caused to underground utilities. Proper placement also allows maintenance activities such as mowing to remain efficient, and allow enough spacing so machinery and trees are not damaged.
