Welcome to the TCA Soccer Program!
A big shout out to everyone who has volunteered to coach! Also thank you to everyone who has volunteered for the many other roles. Our program could not run without you!
Soccer balls and uniform kits have been ordered and we are excited for the season to start!
April 23 – Season starts
May 14 – Photo day at the Tuscany Club. Specific times will be communicated at a later date.
June 25 – Season ends
Team & field assignments – You can expect to hear from your coach around the second week in April about your team and field placement. This may be an email or communication through the Team Snap App that we will use again this year for team communications, schedules, etc.
Each child will receive a full uniform kit (jersey, shorts, and socks). Shin guards and non-slip athletic shoes are required. We do not recommend soccer cleats for the younger divisions. The uniforms are yours to keep and do not need to be returned at the end of the season. The registration fee also covers a soccer ball for each child to keep at the end of the season; and a medal.
Fields: Our teams play on 3 fields in the community.
Tuscany Meadows Dr – TMD (Next to the Community Garden, behind Tuscany School); Tuscany Way- TW (between Eric Harvey school and the new Fire Station construction); Tuscany Springs Blvd TSB (in Tuscarora near the LRT station).
Your child will be assigned to the one field, and will play on that field for the entire season.
Team Names – Your team name will tell you your age division; field designation; and jersey colour. For example: U4 TMD Blue.
When you see this, you will know that your team plays on the Tuscany Meadows Dr field, and is the U4 team with the Blue jerseys
Given the nature of outdoor Spring soccer in Calgary, the weather can vary greatly from week to week.
In the event of inclement weather, the coaches will determine whether or not to cancel practice / games, and will notify you via email at least 1 hour prior to practice/game time. Soccer will be cancelled if there is lightning, heavy rain, snow on the field, or temperatures below 0C.
Wind or cool temperatures are not typically reasons for cancellation. On cool or windy days, players should dress appropriately – i.e sweat pants, long sleeve shirts, sweaters.
Each team in the league will have access to the Team Snap app. I know that many of you have used this app before and it is a great tool for team communication. For those who are not familiar, it is an App that you can download to your phone or device for free. It allows the coach / manager to send out team communications, weather cancellations, RSVPs to games, etc.
Most all communication for our league is done through email, so please ensure that your email address is correct in our registration system!
