Information | EMSA South West

SWEMSA is a volunteer run program for players in the U4 – U19 age levels participating in community & Club soccer.  We appreciate the hundreds of volunteer Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Managers & community volunteers who make our program a success!

We are fortunate to have many parents, siblings, community volunteers & University students coach our players.  No experience is necessary!  There are many resources & courses for our new Coaches that will teach you the game of soccer which enable you to provide our players with the necessary skills.

  • All Team Officials must follow the SWEMSA Coaches_Code_of_Conduct.
  • Coaching courses are available through the Alberta Soccer Association (ASA) & through EMSA.  Please check with your community Soccer Coordinator for cost reimbursement.  Check out our Training Sessions tab for all the details.
  • All Coaches, Assistant Coaches & Team Managers must register as a Team Official in the EMSA Soccer Portal.  This is done by accessing your household account.
  • All Coaches & Assistant Coaches for U4-U19 age levels require a volunteer Police Information Check (PIC) certificate to cover the entire season, including post season play.  The certificate must be requested through SWEMSA, we cannot accept any from outside organizations.
  • Team Managers for U4-U19 age levels also require a PIC certificate.
  • Only Coaches, Assistant Coaches & Team Managers that have a valid PIC certificate on record with SWEMSA will be added to the team roster & may participate during practices and/or games.

 

2019 OUTDOOR COACH MEETINGS

One member of each U9 – U19 community team must attend the meeting – it can be the Head Coach, Assistant Coach or the Team Manager.  This is a great opportunity to hear important information about the upcoming season + meet your fellow Coaches.  Topics range from how to fill out a game book, tournaments, post season play, new game and/or EMSA rules, how to deal with concussions & injuries + much more.  You will be given your Coaches Kit, which includes your game book, at the end of the meeting.
