Registration Details – Indoor 2018-2019

REGISTER HERE NOW!

The Chinooks Program in CMSA is offered from U7 to U19 in Tiers 1, 2, and 3.  The program is comprised of:

CMSA Game Play - Chinooks participates in Tier 1, 2, and 3 of U7 to U19 leagues with Calgary Minor Soccer Association against the best competition in Calgary.  The key goal with competition is to be able to take everything you learn in practices and academy, and apply it in competitive situations where you are under pressure, providing opportunities to learn to think independently, as a team and creatively.  At the higher age levels, this learning turns into competing to win, however our goal is always to develop the player throughout this process.

Chinooks Team Practices - together with your coach and teammates, Chinooks team practices are a way for you to work on skills, tactics and strategies of playing soccer.  Depending on your age, you will focus more or less on different aspects of the game, and will learn to incorporate your individual skills and abilities into a team setting.

Chinooks Academy - technical skill training designed to build individual mastery for all age levels over all core concepts that lead to functional application in game or game-like situations.

Chinooks Age-Specific Fitness Training - fitness training is integrated into Chinooks Academy and is provided to athletes typically at U12 age and older, and is geared to age-specific requirements, along with planning for pre-season, in-season and post-season requirements.  Players on teams will be able to participate in regular fitness sessions throughout the season.

Chinooks Mental Preparation Sessions - mental preparation and focus sessions are provided to teams, typically at U12 and older, and are geared to building mental strength for competitive situations.  Teams will have a number of sessions to be scheduled throughout the season, with additional options for individual development and progression available if desired.

Coaches Honorarium - all Chinooks coaches volunteer a majority of their time to your team and the Club.  In consideration of their efforts the Chinooks levies an honorarium fee to each player in order to provide an honorarium to the Coach and Assistant Coach(es) to cover items such things as gas money. 

Goalkeeper Academy - goalies are invited to train in our weekly Goalkeeper Academy sessions, included in the Academy fees for goalies.

Coaches Training and Mentorship - as part of ongoing development of our coaches, and future coaches, we will have regular on-field coaches training and mentoring throughout the season, often incorporated in conjunction with activities running in parallel, including Chinooks Fitness and Chinooks Free Play, and at practice and game situations.

Specialized Skills Training and Positional Training will be offered in specialized Academy programs, geared to ages, level and interest with the costs and schedule to be released at a future date.

Registration, Evaluations and Pre-season Preparation

Fees for CMSA League Teams in U7 - U19 consist of a Registration Fee and an Academy Fee. Registration fees are due based on the Registration fee for the age of the player when you sign up to join us, and Academy fees are based on the player's placement on a team and the # of Academy and other sport-related sessions that team will participate in over the course of the season.  The number of games, academy sessions and practices will vary based on your player age and team level.  In addition, CMSA season will run from October 28 to varying dates into March 2019 based on your age and level, along with fixed days/nights versus every day/night of the week for older teams after U12.  Please refer to the following table to understand more details on fees, season, playoffs/provincials, academy sessions, practices and other important program details.

Questions to ask yourself when comparing Chinooks fees with other Calgary soccer clubs or your local community soccer program:

  1. Value: How much soccer “value” are you receiving for your money?
    1. What is included in the registration fee?
    2. How long is the season? Does the fee include fall outdoor soccer? (Chinooks Season Details)
    3. How large are the teams? Is your child going to end up on an enormous team resulting in limited playing time on the field?
    4. How experienced are the team coaches?
  2. Technical Training: The quality, frequency, and total amount of technical training sessions vary widely from club to club.
  3. Is technical training included in the registration price?  How many sessions?
  4. How experienced and qualified are the technical trainers?
  5. What is the trainer: player ratio in each training session?
  6. How frequent is the technical training and how long does it run for?
  7. Testimonials: What do the existing members think about the club? (Chinooks Testimonials)

Chinooks Soccer Club is an elite, city wide, training program for children that are serious about taking their game to the next level.  We provide exceptional value given the credentials of our trainers, small training groups, quality of coaching and so much more.
