ELMSA has finished its 2018 season. Please check back in March 2019 for registration information about the 2019 soccer season.
A very big thank you to all our volunteer coaches and other volunteers who make soccer happen for our kids every season.
Soccer is run on Mondays and Wednesdays.
All U5 and U9 teams are on the field from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
U13 & U16 teams, and our Traveling Team players are on the field from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
Players will need shin guards and soccer shoes (baseball shoes are acceptable too).
Please remember to bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray for your player(s).
U9 Division – All jerseys used by U9 teams must be returned. ELMSA has had difficulty finding sponsors to buy the jerseys used by this division and needs to use them for several seasons. If we need to keep replacing jerseys our registration fee will have to increase. Please return your jersey to help keep soccer costs low. Jerseys can be returned at the field on the last day, or at the Ruben Yli-Juuti Centre Municipal pool during normal pool hours.
U5 Division - Tim Horton’s have been a very generous sponsor to ELMSA for many seasons. They have supplied the entire U5 division with jerseys, shorts, socks, and soccer balls. They have also asked us to allow the players to keep their uniform and ball.
Big changes for our youngest players - the U5 division (players aged 3 to 5 years old).
We will be sorting our U5 players on to one of four teams this season instead of six teams like last season. These teams will then follow Ontario Soccer's Grassroots Active Start program. Each practice will have the players rotating through four workstations where they will play fun games and activities that will teach them the skills they need to succeed in soccer.
Our U9 division (players 6 to 9 years old) will also see changes.
These players will be also be sorted into four teams and will follow Ontario Soccer's Grassroots FUNdamentals program.
Our Traveling Teams (players 10 years old and up) will follow Ontario Soccer's Grassroots Learn to Train program. These teams will also travel to nearby communities for game days and occasional tournaments.
Soccer is held on the fields next to the Elliot Lake Secondary School.
Teams practice on Mondays and Wednesdays. The U5 and U9 players are on the field from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. The older Traveling Teams practice from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
We are hoping to start Wednesday May 23rd. The U5 and U9 players will go till the wrap up on Wednesday July 11th. Traveling Teams will run longer - until the first week of August.
Elliot Lake Minor Soccer is a not-for-profit non-competitive fun league. We encourage participation, skill development, and most of all - fun. The players are divided into 3 age groups: ages 3-5, ages 6-9, and 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.
