(February 8, 2018) In April 2017, the Alberta Soccer Members passed, by vote, a new Rules & Regulations document on Youth Player Movement to help guide player movement in the province. In November 2017, this document was approved for full implementation for the 2018 outdoor season.
Alberta Soccer and its members hope this document will help players, parents, clubs, and districts renew their focus on player development through club growth and reduce the focus on player movement during and between seasons. The intent of the document is to decrease recruitment by individuals and organizations, which has caused major disturbances in club stability over the past several years in Alberta.
To help clarify this Policy, Alberta Soccer created a list of examples as a guide – click here for the list of Player Movement examples
