The Government of Alberta declared a health state of emergency, effective Friday, November 27th, to help slow the spread of Covid-19 and protect our health system. The emergency will remain in effect for 3 weeks and then re-evaluated.

Soccer and all soccer activities are therefore suspended until further notice.

Applications, by groups and or organizations, for special dispensations can be forwarded to the Government of Alberta.

EMSA,  EDSA and Facilities are working together to apply for dispensation.  ASA will hopefully join our application.

EMSA has arranged with the Soccer Facilities to extend the Indoor program into April 2020.

I am sure many of you will already be aware that the AHS has announced today to temporarily suspend all sports activities for the next two weeks. This means that starting tomorrow, Friday, November 13th, all EMSA league games will be cancelled through to and including November 27th.  Games will resume again on Saturday, November 28th. EMSAmain is hoping to add these cancelled games onto the end of the second round schedule.  Please be prepared to play in March.

Please see the COVID-19 update from Alberta Soccer.
