The BSA Indoor Soccer registration is conducted online only, via the EMSA portal and payments are processed in TeamSnap from August 1st thru early September. Detailed registration information will be found on the BSA Homepage
U5 and U7
Both the U5 and U7 programs are delivered in the Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre on the turf field.
- U5 will be every Saturday morning for 45 minutes for 9-10 weeks (schedule depending)
- U7 will be every Saturday morning for 60 minutes for approx. 16 weeks (schedule depending)
- The field will be divided into 4 sections (4 teams of about 10 players).
All players are provided with jersey, shorts and socks. We do our best to provide the kits to match the sizes of the players, but due to the size ranges, some players may have kits that are a bit large. Players will need to wear shinpads at all times. Soccer shoes are not required for this age group, so running shoes can be used.
For these age groups, we ask that parents remain at the facility. Many of these young players may need assistance during the sessions and the coaches will be unable to provide the required attention.
U9 to U19
The U9 to U19 programs will have games played in one of the 3 Edmonton Soccer Centres and in the Beaumont Sport and Rec Centre (BSRC). Tournaments may include other facilities in the surrounding area. All practices will be in the BSRC.
Game Days (tentative, but typically)
- U9-U11 - Saturdays
- U13 - Saturdays or Sundays
- U15+ - Sundays
Practices will be at the BRSC Mondays to Fridays between 6:00pm and 9:00pm (may be extended). The days and times are dependent on availability and coach selection.
Optional technical sessions will be available for all U9-U19. These sessions will require the players to pre-register to allow the technical team to assign staff. These registrations will be available 1 week before the sessions and will be posted to https://www.beaumontsoccer.com/technical-calendar/
The Edmonton Soccer Centres are maintained outside of EMSA and require an entrance fee. The fee is per person and can be per day or a seasons pass can be purchased. The fee is typically around $30-$35, but may change. For details on the fees, please refer to https://www.esaf.ca/.
It is strongly recommended to obtain these cards prior to the first game, or arrive early to purchase as the first couple days can be very busy!
EMSA Player and Team Official Cards
Depending on the age group, EMSA will require that players have a Player Card. This can be done electronically with the EMSA E-Card process. For information on this process, please refer to https://emsamain.com/seasoninfo/indoor-season-information/emsa-i-d-cards/

There is no grace period for missing EMSA ID cards. All players, coaches, assistant coaches or managers must have their cards for the first game. If a player does not have a card and they play then the team will forfeit the game. If the coach, assistant coach or manager does not have their cards then they will not be permitted on the bench. If there is a Yes beside your age program or position and you play at a soccer centre you will need an EMSA ID. Facility pass will now be a decal that has to be placed on the back of your EMSA ID.
Is my Outdoor Card valid for the Indoor season?
Yes, Your Outdoor EMSA ID card is good for the Indoor season as long as the Expiry date has not passed.
SEASON AND POST SEASON
The approximate start date for all age categories is TENTATIVELY mid-October ends late-January/early-February for regular season play .
We plan for each team to play 12-14 regular season games, however we can NOT guarantee this.
For teams advancing to post season play (U9-U19) games continue into February & March.
The dates and locations will be posted once the information is confirmed and available.
GAMES AND PRACTICES
Players and coaches should arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of all games. This allows the coaches time to give instructions to the players prior to the game.
Parents of U5 and U7 must stay for all games so that they can enjoy observing their child’s activities and be present if they are needed by the child or coach. This rule is relaxed for U9 and up, however ensure the Coach has an emergency contact number to be reached at before leaving.
