Join the fun with FunTeam Alberta

We are a non-profit organization supporting kids in your community to get involved in sports by either registering or getting involved in our organization for free.

St. Albert FunTeam Soccer 2024

Willoughby Park Field #1 - Willoughby Drive, St. Albert

Description

FunTeam Alberta promotes family oriented, low cost, and less competitive sport to be enjoyed by participants of all skill levels. We are an inclusive organization that encourage any activity to be FUN for the participants, parents, coaches, volunteers and the rest of the community!

Welcome families! 

Whether you are new to Fun Team or a returning family we are excited to participate in this season with you and your children. FunTeam is a unique opportunity for the community to come together to create a positive opportunity for our kids to participate in recreational soccer. We strive to build a network of families who are excited to volunteer their time as coaches, assistants, and team support. We as parents will support our kids by teaching them skills, building their confidence, and reinforcing positive attitudes for soccer in a non-competitive environment. It is a rewarding experience to be a part of your child's activities, but it is even more wonderful to see how excited the kids feel when they have their parents on the field with them helping out.

What to Expect: parent volunteers will coach the children, encourage all members of the group, and help to ensure the equipment is accounted for each night. We follow a nightly routine of set up, warm ups, skills, and finish with a group scrimmage and equipment clean up. We expect inclusion and encouragement regardless of skill level and strive to create a positive experience for all families and children.

Season Information

Where: Willoughby Field #1

When: Tuesday’s May 14 to June 25 from 6pm to 7pm
*Due to planning and time constraints, our season will not have regular make up games. If we are unable to play due to weather there will be no game night that week. However, if the season ends up being extremely rainy we will consider looking at additional makeup days subject to the availability of fields with the City of St. Albert.

Who: Children aged 4 to 11 (Determined by the child’s age by the end of 2024)

Cost: $35

Max Spots: 105
The number of spots has been reduced slightly from 2023. There will be 7 groups and each group will be capped at 15 participants. We will accept wait-list names and try to accommodate as best as possible.

**PLEASE NOTE: for children in the youngest age group (4 years), we will need at least ONE parent to participate WITH their child for the skill building portion of the evening. This is a volunteer based soccer program, and the youngest often need the most help. This will allow the children to have one on one help to build their skills and will allow the volunteer coaches to be able to focus on facilitating the group. The youngest group will focus on 45 minutes of skills and scrimmage and the last 15 minutes being more free play.

When registering please use the email you wish to be contacted at for information regarding the season.

If you have any questions or concerns please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

You will receive a welcome email with more information once registration closes.

Thank you for your consideration in joining us this year.
