Parent’s Corner

On behalf of the EMSA South Board and Staff, I would like to welcome you to the 2024 Outdoor Soccer Season.

EMSA South exists to promote, develop and govern the soccer program in the communities that make up the EMSA South. We strive to provide for all children and youth in the EMSA South Zone the opportunity to enjoy the “beautiful game.” We endeavor to develop all our players, regardless of initial skill, to their full potential as soccer players, encouraging the values of good sportsmanship and of course having fun.

Our Board members are committed to improving our programs so they are more enjoyable for our Players, Coaches and Parents. We are also determined to better manage these programs by increasing efficiencies and accountability to you.

EMSA South is a community volunteer-driven organization. This means with a few exceptions, our program is organized and run by a group of dedicated volunteers from the communities of the EMSA Souths Zone. We appreciate all our volunteers from Coaches and Managers working directly with the teams to the Board Members working to improve the program and the countless volunteers that help with registration, pre-season camps, inventory, tournaments, equipment, evaluations, and so much more. All these people contribute well over 300,000+ volunteer hours each year to ensure our youth have the opportunity to play soccer. Please show them respect and gratitude, for without these generous volunteers, we would not be able to offer this program. Also, if you are not already involved, please consider volunteering some of your time to make your and all our children’s soccer experience a great one!

We welcome your comments, concerns or suggestions at any time, and if there is a problem, please contact us sooner rather than later, so that we might be able to help you.   Feel free to relate them to your community league representative or the MWSA office at or 780-469-7344

I hope you have a fantastic season!
