The Chinooks FC is a non-profit organization that is run by a Board of Directors elected annually by members at the Annual General Meeting. The club was established in 1974 as one of the six zoned teams in the city along with the Blizzards, Eagles, Eastside, Celtics, and Foothills. Initially, the zoned teams were for the Under 16 and 18 Boys categories while the communities managed the younger age groups. In the late 1970’s, CMSA added a Under 14 Boy’s programs followed by the introduction of the Girl’s program.
 
The club grew exponentially during the 1980’s and 1990’s with the addition of adult programs in Men’s and Women’s leagues, supporting 24 teams with over 400 members parallel to the growth of the city.  In mid-2000's, CMSA decided to lift the zoned restrictions allowing players to play with any club in the city.  In 2006, the club formed the Under 10 and Under 12 programs.
 
Today, Chinooks continues to support the city with programs from the Grassroot level (ages 4-6) to the youth (ages 7-19) and adult (ages 19+) levels.
