2021 Heritage Soccer Season

Soccer is Back!

Springtime in Calgary brings bright sunshine, clear blue skies, and lots of little legs kicking soccer balls across our green fields! Join in on spring soccer so your kids stay active and make friends all at the same time!

Heritage Soccer is a recreational soccer league for children aged 3 to 12 from the communities of CKE, Haysboro, Kingsland, Fairview, Mayfair, Bel Aire, Southwood and Meadowlark Park.

The league will run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from May 4 to June 24, 2021 on Chinook Park School fields.

Online Registration:
The last day to register for soccer is April 7.  If our soccer season is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions prior to April 7th, a full refund will be given less the TeamSnap and credit card fees.

Each child can choose one friend and that friend must reciprocate on their register form.

Player Registration

Coach Registration

With current restrictions, teams will be limited to 8 kids and 2 adults which means we will need even more coaches this year than other years!  PLEASE consider coaching!  No experience required.

If we don’t have enough coaches, we cannot run this program.  If you’ve already registered, you can edit your registration and fill out a ‘coach registration’.  Let us know if you have questions!
