What are the steps to complete the registration process?
Is this a boarded soccer tournament?
Yes, it is boarded.
How many games will we be playing?
Each team is guaranteed 3 games.
How are teams tiered/pooled?
Tiering can be very difficult for tournaments as in many cases we just don't know how to compare the tiering processes between different soccer organizations/leagues. This is why we refer to our groupings as Pools rather than Tiers. When you register your team you are asked to submit a tier that you would like to play in for the tournament. We use this information as a guideline only as a teams position in their standings/tier can change significantly between the time of registration and the tournament date. We begin the pooling process once registration closes by looking at every teams CURRENT league standings at that time. This is why we ask you for the name of the league you are playing in when you register. In some cases this information gives us a very good idea of where to place a team, but in other cases, especially out of town teams, its our best possible guess based on a teams win/loss record.
Due to the fact that we are working with a limited number of teams in any age group, we may have to pool together teams that are not necessarily in the same tier. For example, we may need to pool together Tier 6, 7, and 8 teams to create 1 pool, or place a Tier 4 team in a pool with Tier 3 teams or in a pool with Tier 5 teams. We will make every effort to ensure that every team is playing with teams that have the same skill and ability.
How many players are allowed on the field?
When will the schedules be released?

What Centers/times will my team be playing?

What is the ASA Roster?
PLEASE NOTE: All Calgary teams must provide a CMSA approved roster. We understand that this form can be printed from the Scorekeepers area of the CMSA website. Please ensure that you include the players full name and birthdate.
Note to EMSA North teams: If your team is part of EMSA North, you do not have to submit an ASA roster but you still have to submit a tournament roster. See below for more information
What is a tournament roster?
If I withdraw my team will I get a refund?
If your team pulls out prior to December 18, 2017 your tournament funds will be reimbursed less a $25.00 administration fee. If your team withdraws after January 20, 2018 no refund will be given.
Where do I hand in the game sheets? Where do I go to find tournament stats?
What if my team has a league game during the tournament?
We are usually able work around this, however when you register, please indicate on the form the date and time of your league game so we know in advance.
What if I coach two (2) teams in the tournament?
We are able to work around this. We will try to have the games times close to each other at the same location – or if that is not possible, enough time for you to travel to the next game. Please make a note of this on your registration form. If a coach is coaching more then two teams this makes it even more challenging to schedule around, please note that we will make our best efforts but be sure to have an assistant coach available in case you cannot make all games.
