Register Now for 2022 Outdoor Community Soccer
Registration for the 2022 Outdoor Community soccer season is now underway and remains open until March 11. The outdoor soccer season plan is a return to the pre-Covid game-based program will a likely start date of Monday May 2 (weather and field conditions permitting). The season would carry on to the end June with the possibility of City Championships to take place the first week of July followed by Provincial championships in mid July.
The 2022 Rio Terrace Community Outdoor soccer program is for players born in years from 2003 through 2018. Players born in 2003 through 2014 will play on teams participating in the EMSA /EMSA West community soccer programs. These teams will play twice a week and generally have one practice a week as well. Teams in the U9 age group will play their games only in the west end of Edmonton (with possibly a few games in Spruce Grove.) Teams playing the older age groups of U11 through U19 will have their games played across Edmonton. Player registration and payment should be completed by March 11 – late registrants may find themselves unable to be placed on the team or community that they have requested.
Players born in years 2015 through 2018 will participate in the Rio Terrace inhouse FunSoccer programs. Each of the combined U4/U5 and the U7 FunSoccer programs feature a focus on fun activities, drills and short games that promote fun and active learning and player skill development. These programs take place at the Rio Terrace School field on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:15 PM to 7:15 PM. This program will start on Monday May 9 and wrap up on Wednesday June 22. Lots of parental support and involvement are required from these age groups, so please consider whether you are able to volunteer and participate in the soccer program. Subject to space availability, registrations for Rio Terrace FunSoccer programs will continue to be accepted after March 11 – but do please register as soon as you are able to do so. Those registering after March 11 should also send an email to email@example.com informing the soccer director of the late registration.

How to Register
Player registration for all age groups of community soccer takes place on-line using the soccer portal on the EMSA WEST soccer website – https://emsawest.com/play/register/outdoor-registration
Registration steps that need to be completed are:
First step is to obtain / have a valid Community league membership. Current membership are numbered 21-XXXXX and are valid through Aug 31, 2022. A membership from any community in Edmonton is valid for soccer registration. Those needing to purchase Community membership can do so most easily on-line at the EFCL.org website.
Second step is to use the EMSA West soccer portal to register players individually for the coming outdoor season. Once a family account has been created or accessed (if previously created), individual player registrations can be made. Please be sure to complete all of the registration steps, indicate that the player wishes to play on a Rio Terrace team (or other if that is the case) and please consider and indicate if you are able to volunteer as a coach or manager for your child’s team.
Payment for Player Registration and Proof of Age Support
Third step in the registration process is to complete payment of the registration fees. The player registration fees can be paid on-line at the same time as player registration is completed if done by March 11). Otherwise, you will need to contact either the EWZSA soccer office or myself to complete payment.
Please note that player Proof of age is required to be made available for review for all players not previously registered in the Rio Terrace Soccer program. Alberta Health Care cards are the usual proof of age provided, but other government issue ID is also accepted as long as player name and birth date are included in the ID. Note this is a visual inspection only – I do not need a copy to be left with me.
Please contact me – the Rio Terrace Soccer Coordinator – at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions on the programs or wish to make alternative payment arrangements.
