Fees - Boarded & Boardless:

The schedule of fees for the upcoming season has been created in the leanest form possible. The fair play awards, CWSA scholarships and the added cost for provincial competitions have temporarily been removed. The Alberta Soccer Member Fees have also not been included in the total cost of the team fees, and will instead be paid by the individual player upon registration. This fee will be $10 for all players.

  • FINAL Team Fees: $3600 ($500 deposit due upon registration) - Indoor 2020/21 Schedule of Fees 
  • Member Fee: $10 per player. Each player will be required to pay the member fee at the time of registration.

Player Registration

PLAYER REGISTRATION IS OPEN - Contact your coach or team manager for your registration link.

Due to current restrictions in place, teams and players are limited to participating in one program ONLY. This means that teams and players must choose  between boarded and boardless, and will not be able to participate in both programs this season. 


Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the CWSA Indoor 2020-2021 season will have no bearing on future seasons. When normal league play can resume again, alignment and team placement will revert back to the standings from the Indoor 2019-2020 Indoor Season. 

League Format

The below format has been chosen in order to provide our teams with a consistent and regular game schedule throughout the season, and to provide as much variety of competition as is currently possible while abiding by all AHS and ASA rules and guidelines. 

The season will be split into 3 rounds. Each round will consist of 6 games each to make up an 18 game season. In each round, groups/cohorts of 3 teams will play a triple round robin. The rounds will be scheduled in 6 week blocks, followed by a 2 week break* from game play. New cohorts will then be formed after each round based on the game results from the previous round.

*The current Alberta Health Services (AHS) rules state that in order to re-shuffle sport cohorts, there has to be a 14-day period between completion of play in the old mini-league/round and the beginning of the new mini-league/round.

Below is a explanation of how each of the 3 rounds will work:

Round 1:

  • Teams will be in groups of 9 which will be made up of 3 cohorts of 3 teams each. 
  • Teams will play a triple round robin against the teams within their cohort for a total of 6 games. 
  • Once the round has been completed:
    • The three 1st placed teams will form a new cohort for Round 2
    • The three 2nd placed teams will form a new cohort for Round 2
    • The three 3rd placed teams will form a new cohort for Round 2. 

Round 2:

  • Teams will play another triple round robin against the new teams within their new cohort for a total of 6 games. 
  • Once the round has been completed:
    • The first placed team of each cohort will move up to a higher level cohort. 
    • The second placed team will remain in the same cohort.
    • The third place team will move down to the lower level cohort.

Round 3:

  • Teams will play a final triple round robin against the new teams within their new cohort for a total of 6 games. 


Call-ups/Guest Players

  • Teams will be able to call-up guest players from within their own cohort ONLY.

Player Transfers

  • All player transfers will be subject to Rules 2.5.2, 2.5.4, 2.5.5, 2.5.6, 2.5.7 of the CWSA Rules and Regulations,
    AND, due to COVID-19 restrictions;
    • Transfers within the cohort - Players can transfer to a team within their cohort at any time and with immediate effect. There will be no waiting period.
    • Transfers outside of the cohort - Players can transfer to a team outside of their cohort at any time, but the transferring player, prior to being permitted to begin playing for their new team, will undergo a mandatory 14 day waiting period where they would not be permitted to play in ANY games.


  • A referee will be assigned to officiate each league game
