Blackmud Creek Outdoor Soccer 2017

Blackmud Creek offers a spring outdoor community soccer program for children ages 4 to 18 years of age. Each week, U4 players have one game and U6 to U18 players have two games and may also have one practice (or more). Outdoor soccer usually begins the 1st week of May and ends late June, except for teams proceeding to post season play (U10 to U18) who may play into July and August. Registration for outdoor soccer is held each February. You must be a community league member to register for outdoor soccer. For more information, please see below.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

If you require financial assistance, organisations like kidsport, http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/alberta/edmonton/, are available to help.   If you apply for assistance, funding will need to be approved before the end of February and you will be responsible for any remaining amount of the registration fees before your child(ren) registration is accepted.

 

REGISTERING YOUR CHILD

For the outdoor season, players register through their community league and must register in the community in which they reside.  Requests to transfer to a team in a different community will be granted if space permits.  To apply for a transfer, please indicate a request to transfer in the Comment Section on the player registration form.

Proof of residency and proof of age will be required at the payment session.

Please remember that you MUST have a current BCCL membership number in order to register.  It can be purchased online via our membership page.

On-time registrations will end on February 28th and late registrations will begin on March 1st.

 

STEPS TO REGISTER

All 2017 outdoor soccer registrations begin online.  You must have a household account whether you are coaching or your child(ren) is playing.  That can be done at www.emsasoccerportal.com.  If you created a household account last year, you don’t need to create one this year.  We suggest every family start with creating and/or reviewing your household account as soon as possible.  Online registration will be available starting February 1st.  Please note all registrations must be done on the website listed above.

After you have completed the registration form online and printed off your registration forms, you need to bring them with you to one of the registration sessions.   You will need to bring the following:

Should you pay online, you are still required to provide proof of payment and attend one of the following registration sessions to complete your child(ren) registrations.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT VOLUNTEERING

It takes a lot of work to organize this program, which relies on the contribution of time and energy from the members of our community.  As part of the registration process, we ask for a $150 volunteer fee deposit post-dated to July 1, 2017 and that at least one parent/guardian per household with a child playing soccer for BCCL volunteer for the community. There are many opportunities to help out in both soccer and non soccer activities.  Once you have volunteered, you are no longer required to pay the $150 volunteer fee and your cheque will not be deposited.

This year we have developed specific volunteer duties per age group.  Every team will have a list of volunteer duties and every family will be assigned a volunteer duty.

Examples of volunteer opportunities:

If you decline to volunteer, please add the $150 to your registration fee cheque.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT JERSEYS AND EQUIPMENT

Equipment: BCCL provides all players U4 to U14 with a soccer jersey. U6 players get to keep their jerseys since the age group is sponsored by Tim Hortons. Players provide their own shorts, socks, shoes, and shin pads.  No jewellery, hats or sunglasses allowed on the field.  We recommend dress appropriately for the weather with long sleeved tops, sunscreen, bug spray, and a jacket.

Cleats and Shin Guards: Cleats are not allowed in U4 and U6 programs and shin guards are mandatory.  U8 and up programs require cleats and shin guards.

Player Transfer Policy: Players are required to register through their own community league.  Once registered, they can request a transfer.  All transfers need to be approved by the community.

Player Age Bump Policy: Players are required to register with their appropriate age group.  Once registered, they can request an age bump.  All age bumps need to be approved by the community and SWEMSA.

Code of Conduct: Any inappropriate conduct, threats, harassment or abuse (including the use of profanity) directed towards game or team officials, members, parents, players, fans, volunteers, Board members or employees of BCCL or of another association will not be tolerated.  Violations of this code may result in suspension or expulsion of the violator and/or their family.

Reminder to parents of U10 and younger children: A parent or other adult must remain at the game with your child at all times.  If you cannot stay with your child, please ask another parent to be responsible for your child.
