When does registration start?
Outdoor - February 1, 2019
Indoor - June 15, 2018
How do I know what age group my child would play in?
For indoor and outdoor soccer take the current year (when you are registering) and subtract the year of birth of your child. The resulting number is the oldest the child can be to register in an age group.
e.g. for a child born in 2012 and registering in 2018. 2018-2012 = 6
Can I register after Registration has closed?
A request can be made to be placed on a wait list.
I do not live in the “normal” area for TriWest (Killarney/Glengarry, Glendale, Glen Meadows, Knobhill/Richmond, Shaganappi). Can I still register and what community association should I register with?
The Calgary Minor Soccer Association does not recognize any community boundaries for soccer, so you can register with any soccer association that you wish. Triwest does require a current community association membership at registration. If you do not yet have a membership or your membership has lapsed, please check the box for the appropriate community association which can be paid with your registration on-line. If your association is NOT listed please provide proof that your local community association fees are paid up to date.
Is it possible to have my child play on the same team as her friend?
Typically most requests for U6/U8 are accepted; these requests should be made at registration. Friend requests will not be honered after registration closes. Player placement is done by age group coordinators. Email info@TriWestsoccer.com with the names and age category of your friend request. The U10 SWL is tiered, level 1,2,3; teams are formed based on ability. TriWest's policy is children placed on higher level tiers can be moved down however, children on lower level tiers cannot be moved up. We do recognize that this is often important to parents and children for different reasons (siblings, carpooling, etc.). Please feel free to contact the age group coordinator with your request; parents of both parties need to provide a written request to firstname.lastname@example.org
The registration system states that the age category is full. Does TriWest have a waiting list?
Please contact the age group coordinator at info@TriWestsoccer.com with a request to be placed on a waitlist.
I want my child to play soccer but she is not old enough to play U6 with TriWest
This would be a child born in 2015 for the 2019 outdoor season - this would be U4. Unfortunately, TriWest does not offer a U4 program.
How do I know if there still is room in a particular program?
If the on-line registration system accepts your registration then there is still space available in the program.
What is TriWest’s cancellation policy?
All online refund requests must be submitted in writing to the TriWest Board at email@example.com (not to your age group coordinator or coach). Refunds requested PRIOR to the registration closing date will be made minus an administration fee of $25 for U6, U8 & U10 programs.AFTER the registration closing deadline, refunds will be considered that are of a medical nature and accompanied by a doctor’s note. They will be reviewed by the board of TriWest Soccer and if approved will be made with respect to the following process:

Outdoor - What is the difference between the Southwest League and CMSA for U10 outdoor?Southwest League:
Indoor - Where does TriWest play?
All sessions are held in local gyms (i.e. Wildwood Community Centre, Glendale School, Westgate School) for the house leagues. All games for the U8 CMSA teams are at CWSC - Calgary West Soccer Center - Bearspaw Road NW and practices are held in local gyms.
Indoor - What days will they play soccer? When will this be determined?
U6 and U8 house league practice/games are offered weekdays at a community gym. U8 CMSA practices are offered weekdays at a community gym while the games are offered on the weekend at the Calgary West Soccer Centre. Once permits for the local gyms are secured we will post the dates, time and locations on the website.
Indoor - What is the difference between the House League and the CMSA team for U8 indoor?
The House League practices/plays once a week at a local gym where they generally practice for 30 minutes and play a game for 30 minutes. Teams are not assigned and are arranged depending on the attendance that evening. The indoor U8 CMSA TEAM (Calgary Minor Soccer Association) has one practice a week at a local gym and one game a week at an indoor soccer center.
What are the “optional” technical sessions?
These intergrated technical sessions are offered by PASS (Premier Academy of Soccer Skills). They focus on technical skills training such as; ball handling, passing, shooting etc. We strongly encourage your child to attend these technical sessions to further develop their skills.
In U10, can I drop my child off and leave during practices?
Parents are required to attend all practices unless, an agreement is made at the beginning of the season that a bench parent will be designated for each practice. At that time the Team Manager will designate a bench parent on Team Snap for each practice. The bench parent will then ensure all the children are returned safely to their parents at the end of practice. For the U10 Girls the bench parent is required to be female.
What can I do if I believe that my child has the ability to play in a higher age category and I wish them to play in this age category?
We will place players in older age groups when requested and based on ability, but not into younger age groups. It is up to the parent to make this determination; if you believe that your child is able to play at a higher level, you can register him/her as such. The registration system will automatically place your child in an age category based upon their date of birth.
Please notify the registrar to make any changes at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that requests to play up should be based on ability and not convenience (i.e. siblings together). Parents should contact the Age Group Coordinator if they are unsure of where their child should play.
If a child clearly does not fit into the higher team, they will be requested to move back down. Furthermore, maturity of the child will be considered.
What are the evaluations sessions? What happens if I cannot make the evaluations sessions? Can my child still play if they cannot make them?
The evaluations are run by PASS (Premier Academy of Soccer Skills). Children are evaluated on their endurance, technical skill, and co-operation. The purpose is to identify what level each player should be seeded and what tiers Triwest should register their teams with in the SWL. Correct placement of both can make a tremendous impact upon having a fun and successful outdoor soccer season. We STRONGLY encourage that every effort be made to attend an evaluation/spring training session (there are usually at least two). Please contact the age group co-ordinator with any questions or concerns info@TriWestsoccer.com
