Indigenous Soccer Programming
Alberta Soccer advocates and supports inclusive sport and programming of Soccer within Indigenous Communities. The Grassroots Development Program has assisted with the development and competitive programming at the Alberta Indigenous Games. A relationship that has proved very positive to all involved. It is hoped that this may be the start of a long partnership that will increase soccer’s profile as the world game.

In addition to supporting the Alberta Indigenous Games, Alberta Soccer is also pleased to support the development of coaches and players for the North American Indigenous Games event. This is an international, multi-sport event that was due to take place in Halifax in July 2020 (postponed to 2021).
If you are a player or coach of indigenous origin and would like to get involved in either soccer program, please contact Claire Paterson, Coach Education Administrator, for further information including team training camps.
