Soccer is done for the 2023 season.
ELMSA would like to thank the coaches for stepping up to look after a team. Soccer could not run without people volunteering their time to supervise the players. We would also like to thank those parents and guardians who stepped up to help out on the occasional night their team’s coach couldn’t make it to soccer.
We would also like to thank FireSide, Oak Realty, and Rona for sponsoring a U9 team each. The new Jerseys look great! A very big thank you to our local Tim Horton’s who sponsored the entire six team U5 division and also supplied Timbit’s for all the players at our Season Wrap-Up event.
Lastly We would like to thank the Match Officials and the Players for a great season.
Hopefully everyone had fun and will sign up again next year.
Volunteers are an important part of our soccer season. We always need people to volunteer as coaches and for positions on the executive. Please use the Contact Us section of this website to let us know if you would be willing to volunteer next season. You can also send an email to email@example.com.
U9 and U13 Divisions
All jerseys used by U9 and U13 teams must be returned. Unfortunately we have not been able to find local sponsors who are able to buy new jerseys each season for our teams. ELMSA needs to use jerseys for several seasons to keep our costs low. Jerseys can be returned at Collins Hall during normal hours of Monday - Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Please return your jersey as soon as possible to help keep soccer affordable for all.
Tim Horton’s continues to be a very generous sponsor to ELMSA. They supply the entire U5 division with jerseys, shorts, socks, and soccer balls. They have also asked us to allow the players to keep their uniform as they plan to supply us again next year with new uniforms and balls. Please remember to thank Nancy Wyman, Erin Brunelle, and their staff the next time you are in our local Tim Horton’s.
Soccer is held on the fields next to the Elliot Lake Secondary School.
It runs on Mondays and Wednesdays during the season starting in late May and ending in early July.
The U5 and U9 players are on the field from 6 to 7pm. The older players practice from 7 to 8 pm.
What do players need to participate?
All players will need soccer shoes, shin guards, and comfortable shorts for running.
A team jersey will be provided by your player’s coach on the first night.
We also have a bin of donated shoes for players who have had trouble finding soccer shoes.
Please feel free to donate any equipment your players have outgrown.
A note about parking at ELSS
The school board is asking that we not park on the grass at ELSS. Parking and driving on the grass wrecks the property and costs money to repair. Our Fees will increase and our permit for use of the field may be revoked if this continues. Please park only in the spaces provided for that purpose.
Elliot Lake Minor Soccer is a not-for-profit non-competitive fun league. We encourage participation, skill development, and most of all - fun.
We provide an opportunity for kids to belong to a team, be active, and hopefully make friends while working together with other players to accomplish team objectives. Game results and team standings are not kept. There is no playoff series at the end of our season.
The players are divided into 3 age groups:
ages 3-5, ages 6-9, & ages 10 and up.
They play on 3 different sized fields at Elliot Lake Secondary School.
The Coaches and Executive members are all volunteers.
Our funding comes mostly from registration fees with occasional donations from our sponsors.
