June 3 – 9 is #MinorSoccerWeek in Calgary!


The Calgary Minor Soccer Association (CMSA) is eager to announce the first annual Minor Soccer Week to be held June 3 - 9, 2018. It is with the support of our title sponsor, Armstrong Cheese, that CMSA can launch this exciting initiative with the goal to engage youth players, volunteers and the local community in celebration of our sport.

Armstrong Cheese Minor Soccer Week is dedicated to promoting soccer in Calgary and growing the game in our community. Armstrong Cheese Minor Soccer Week strives to:

  1. Promote youth participation: raise awareness of minor soccer with activities focused on promoting the positive benefits of sport, highlighting opportunities for youth players and teams
  2. Encourage involvement: get coaches and parents involved in supporting their youth players
  3. Strengthen our community: bring together our member-clubs to celebrate soccer in Calgary
