AND WE KEEP KICKING…
The recent AHS announcement should cause minimal disruption to our upcoming events. We are excited to kick off 2 new programs that should engage our members. The Competitive Team Evaluations scheduled for this week have now suffered a stoppage of play and are postponed until restrictions allow.
MARCH 26 | ESPORTS ROCKET LEAGUE (ALL AGES TEST RUN)
All minor, adult, and family teams welcome!
Here is your chance to be among the first to experience the new era of multi-player online gaming during our Inaugural Test Run. This after-school-one-night tourney will pit gamers against each other in epic 3v3 battles. Have your Team Captain register all 3 players on our website, each player purchases a $15 individual battle pass, and let the games begin. Register your team by 12:00pm March 25 and you are in.

14-Day Temporary Suspension Announcement – UPDATE Nov 25/20
November 25, 2020
An additional update on soccer programming will follow down the road shortly. The Board has a meeting next Tuesday on December 1, 2020 to discuss this issue. However, it does appear that all programming is once again on hold for AT LEAST the next 3 weeks. We, of course, will follow all guidelines from Alberta Health Services. However, we did want to pass on SOME GOOD NEWS.
At the recent budget deliberations, the City of Grande Prairie agreed to provide up to $ 100,000 in matching funds towards our REGIONAL year-round multi-user indoor project. This is exciting and more information will come before the new year when our new website is launched.
The next step is a meeting at the Joint Regional Recreational Committee which is coming up shortly. If we want to make the year round indoor facility a reality, we need your help filling out this survey which only contains THREE questions. If possible, please reply by the end of this Friday.

November 13, 2020
As you may know, the Alberta Government has implemented a new 14-day temporary restriction on team sports and effective today, from November 13 until November 27, 2020 all soccer programming is suspended. We are looking at alternative plans for extending all schedules. We will communicate changes as soon as more information is known and time permits.
We thank everyone for your cooperation and understanding as we continue to follow all public health guidelines to return to soccer safely and as quickly as possible.
