2021 Outdoor Season
We know this year holds lots of uncertainties, but we’re determined that we will have a 2021 Soccer Season. We are preparing for a number of different scenarios and we will continue to work together with the Edmonton Minor Soccer Association and Alberta Soccer to determine exactly what the season will look like.
Due to the uncertainties at this time ESESA has decided to open initial registration, We would like to have players register soon so we can get an understanding of the interest and numbers for the 2021 Season.
PANDEMIC REFUND POLICY WHICH ADDRESSES THE SEASONAL TIMELINE CAN BE FOUND HERE: Updated pandemic refund policy
SCENARIO #1 – Return to Play (modified)
- Similar to last outdoor season
- Cohort limit of 50 (subject to change)
- U13 to U19 scheduled by EMSA Main
- No tournaments or post season play
SCENARIO #2 – Return to Soccer
- Similar to 2019 season
- Potential tournaments and post season play U11 & up
Please keep in mind that we are continuing to follow the direction of Edmonton Minor Soccer and Alberta Soccer under the guidance of Alberta Health Services. This means although this is our initial plan, it is subject to change.
Our goal moving forward is to ensure our players will not lose the prospect for development and will have the opportunity to get outside and continue to play the game that they love, though perhaps a little differently.
We will definitely need to lean on our membership in a volunteer capacity to help us with coaching, managing, and covering off on safety related duties that we will be required to do. Leading by example for our kids and following all related safety protocols will be everyone’s responsibility.
Registration for the 2021 Outdoor season opens March 15, 2021. Below you’ll find a lot of information on the season, how to register & pay – please review prior to registering. If you can’t find the answer to a question, please contact our zone Administrator (email@example.com).
