4 | 2013 ANNUAL REPORT

Dear Alberta Soccer Members,

2012-2013 proved to be another year of incredible successes thanks to our amazing membership. As part of the leadership team of the Alberta Soccer Association, along with the Board of Directors and professional staff, we are excited for the promising future that lies ahead both on the field and off. This year saw the Association make a big step forward with the development and release of the Association’s first ever three year Strategic Plan which outlined our new vision as “a centre of excellence for the game, providing opportunities for all players to reach their full potential” and outlined strategic priorities and deliverables. This plan will help ensure transparency and accountability amongst our Membership while keeping our programs and activities focused. We also took positive steps regarding the Governance structure of our organization. By-Laws that provide more clarity around Board and staff responsibilities, in particular, Technical, Referee and Competitions Committees will now be led by staff while committees like Strategic Planning and Risk Management will be overseen by Board Members.

Long Term Player Development remains at the heart of our programming while also contributing to the continued development of our competitions and referee programs. In every decision we make and program we create, player development will always remain at the centre of everything we do. With greater collaboration between the Alberta Soccer Association, FC Edmonton and the Canadian Soccer Association, we are confident that our players will receive better and more consistent environments to play in. For example, in this past year we created male and female Regional Performance Centres in partnership with FC Edmonton in both Calgary and Edmonton that serve as the link between our Provincial and National Team Programs. The Association has also been hard at work developing its business foundation which included adding a Communications and Business Development Coordinator to our Professional Staff at the beginning of the year. We are finding ways to target our younger audiences and engage them in our various activities and programs. This has included revamping our digital presence with a new, more user-friendly website and a foray into various social media channels like Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. We have also been hard at work laying the groundwork for future partnerships and sponsorships while signing on new partners who fit with the Alberta Soccer vision and mandate such as Booster Juice. In the past year we have also focused on building collaborative relationships with our soccer partners around the province and on a national scale. The support of our District Members, Clubs and countless volunteers, ensures that our programs, events and initiatives are possible and affordable. Our current staff continues to be wonderful representatives and champions for the Association and soccer in Alberta. Impressive staff retention over the last couple of years has allowed us to be consistent in the pursuit of our strategic priorities and deliverables. These are key components in allowing Alberta Soccer to maintain fees while simultaneously increasing services to our Members. 2012-13 has been a fantastic year both on and off the field for soccer in Alberta but we will not rest on our accomplishments to date. The time is right for the game to continue to flourish as we head into the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 and the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 both of which have Edmonton as one of the host cities. We will continue to work closely with our membership and our partners to build on the momentum we have established. We will continue to pursue a progressive approach to our programs and use innovation, consultation and engagement as key elements in helping us to be the leader of soccer in Alberta, now and into the future.

Life Members ...a very special way of honouring a member's future life by recognizing the significant and sustained commitment made during their past life - in Soccer. As the ultimate compliment an individual can receive from their peers, it publicly states that they have given unselfishly, asking nothing in return other than their love of the game. ~ Anonymous Life Member

From Grassroots to Excellence The Association continues to push forward with aligning all programs to the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) Model. Led by Technical Director, Shaun Lowther, the Association's player development programs will directly feed into Canada Soccer's programming and be guided by higher standards.

Technical Development LTPD compliance has guided all of our Technical programs to date for both coaches and players alike. All documentation that the Technical Department produced in 2013 was LTPD compliant in regards to Technical Standards eg. game formats, ball size, field size etc. This year we were very fortunate to bring Sylvie Beliveau, LTPD manager for Canada Soccer into Alberta. Sylvie hosted two LTPD implementation meetings in Calgary and Edmonton and she has been a fantastic resource to Alberta Soccer as we attempt to continue to encourage LTPD to stakeholders throughout the Province. Moving forward there are a couple of initiatives that we wish to embark on that will help LTPD Implementation. Firstly the creation of a High Performance League for Alberta players who would be considered in the Stage 4 - "Training to Train" and Stage 5 - "Training to Compete" stages of development is an essential element in the Player Development pathway. The importance of meaningful consistent competition for High Performance is critical to get players to the highest levels of the game. In addition, Alberta Soccer will be calling upon individuals across the Province to become LTPD Leaders within their region to Champion the cause of LTPD.

Regional Performance Centres

Danone Nation's Cup

The formation of the Regional Performance Centres in partnership with FC Edmonton occurred in September 2013. The program, with approximately 18 players of both genders in each of the two centres, creates a training environment of the utmost quality. Players who range in age from 15 to17 receive top class coaching four times per week. The best of the best train together in a competitive arena to push each other to higher levels of play.

Alberta Soccer in partnership with Calgary Minor Soccer Association hosted the Annual Danone Cup Alberta selection camp in Calgary on September 21st. Close to 350 enthusiastic 10 and 11 year olds from throughout the Province put on a class performance in sportsmanship and level of play to impress the dozen or so evaluators who were responsible for selecting the players to move on.

As part of the Player Development Pyramid to assist players in their goal of reaching National Team programming we have seen success in the short term with several players already involved in National Team Projects.

A total of 45 players were selected. These fortunate players will now participate in an Alberta Provincial Camp in the Spring that will allow these players to showcase their talents further in their quest to represent Canada at the 2014 Danone Nation's Cup Finals at a site TBD.

Being in constant contact with National Team Staff, the Regional Performance Centres will be very important in continuing to promote Alberta based players into the National Youth Team setup.

"Higher standards will continue to guide Alberta's Player Development Programs"


9 | 2013 ANNUAL REPORT

The 2013 Alberta Provincial Teams represented the Province with pride, passion and some of the most skilled soccer we have seen in recent years.

National All-Stars

Canada Summer Games

In its last year of existence, Thunder Bay and Laval played host to the Annual National All-Stars Competition for U15 and U16 Boys and Girls.

The competition was held this year in Sherbrooke, Quebec for U-18 male and female teams. Both of the Alberta Men's and Women's teams played inspiring soccer that was not reflected in the final placing during the competition. Both teams placed 5th after unlucky results but both were credited for the style of soccer they played by neutral observers and coaching staff of the opposition.

Alberta Soccer put in impressive performances to medal in every age category. Both the U15 Girls and U16 Boys lost hard fought Championship matches to Ontario and took home silver medals while the U15 Boys and U16 Girls won their bronze medal matches. The competition also served as an opportunity for players to showcase their skills to Canada Soccer Coaching Staff and several Alberta players were identified.

Prairie Invitational For the first time in its young history, Alberta teams competing in the Prairie Invitational had the opportunity to play at home in Calgary. U13 and U14 Alberta North and South teams competed with BC, Saskatchewan and Manitoba in a week long tournament. With this particular competition being guided by LTPD and with minimal focus on results, players were given an opportunity to show their skills to Technical Directors and Canada Soccer's U-17 Men's Coach, Sean Fleming. 58 Alberta players of 188 total players were selected to the Umbro All-Star game on the final day of competition.

2013 ANNUAL REPORT | 10

Grassroots Alberta continues to implement and evolve programs that focus on all levels of player development. In 2013, Alberta Soccer continued to support initiatives to strengthen links between the Distict Grassroots programs and ourselves through various programs. This focus will continue into 2014 through the active promotion and alignment of its programs with the Long Term Player Development plan.

Soccability This positive program for players with disabilities continued to grow in 2013 and promote inclusive opportunities. The program has developed a stable presence in Edmonton and Calgary with plans to encourage further District programs throughout the Province. In 2013, Powerchair Soccer was added to the Soccability program in Calgary. In total, 68 participants registered for the Soccability Program in 2013.

District Outreach Program The focus of 2013 was continued engagement through parent, player and coach programs. This was extended to engaging Board of Directors with the intention of heightening awareness of district engagement and development opportunities through the implementation of LTPD.

Summer Soccer Camps Alberta Soccer re-launched their summer soccer camps in 2013 to further engage Members in LTPD principles. One camp was held in Redwood Meadows that had 34 players sign up and one was held in Fort McMurray that had 68 players. These camps are unique from other summer soccer camps in that they include instruction from Alberta Soccer Provincial B Licensed coaches.

Mini Stars Our 2013 performance was significantly better than industry averages in most categories

The 2013 Mini Stars program which focused on the Learning to Train Stage of development continued to grow over the last year and was offered in multiple centres across the province. The goal of Mini Stars is to offer children and parents a developmental program that will support their continued development and transition into the Provincial Team Program. As many as 26 players of the 2013 U13 Provincial Teams have progressed through the Mini Stars program.

Coach Education

2013 saw the continued transition towards the new Coaching Certification Pathway aligned with the Long Term Player Development Model

Licensing Stream

Increasing Numbers The Alberta Soccer Coaching Program saw a significant increase (+30%) in overall participation in 2013 with the Community Stream courses as the major source of growth. This growth was achieved with a leaner but more productive roster of Provincial Learning Facilitators

2015-16 will see the launch of Phase 2, the Competition Introduction Stream of the LTPD Coaching Pathway Rollout. In 2013, Alberta Soccer continued to offer the Pre B Assessment Course and Provincial B Licence for Coaches wishing to coach at the Excellence level. Pre B Assessment The Pre B Assessment continues to offer coaches in the province the opportunity to be assessed, often for the first time and aims to evaluate the coaching and technical ability of the candidate. It serves as an important and critical bridge between the Community and Licensing Streams. 34 Coaches were trained at the Pre B Assessment level in 2013 as we head into the last year of the Pre B Assessment's existence.

Community Stream Data The Coaching program was the first program to the feel the effects of the Long Term Player Development model having rolled out the Community stream of Canada Soccer's LTPD inspired Coaching Pathway. The figure below shows the distribution of Coaches in Community Stream Courses.

Online Course Management In early 2013 the Coaching Department rolled out an Online Course Management System to upgrade and streamline our course management processes and develop a province-wide soccer-specific coaching database within Alberta.

Provincial B Licence This year the Provincial “B� Licence has transitioned from a course into a program. Simply put this means that the educational/course components (Training) and the evaluation components (Certification) have been separated as per NCCP. The chart below shows the number of participants who took part in the Provincial B and Pre B Courses in 2013.

The Coaching Department has worked diligently to raise the standards of delivery of coach education across Alberta. The quality, professionalism and enthusiasm of our instructors are key factors in our ongoing efforts to get to the next level. Each year we continue to deliver Workshops and training for our Assessors, Learning Facilitators and Master Learning Facilitators from all over the Province.

Over 1700 Coaches attained the necessary community coaching qualifications


Competitions

2013 ANNUAL REPORT | 12

2013 saw the return of the Futsal Provincial Championships, an alternative to the familiar boarded soccer. The past year also saw Calgary host the Prairie Invitational and Lethbridge host the U-14 National Club Championships.

Youth Program In 2013, Alberta Soccer conducted 40 Youth Outdoor Provincial Championships, 32 Youth Indoor Provincial Championships and 5 Futsal Provincial Championships for males and females U12-U18. With four tiers of Championship play, 557 teams competed in over 1,000 games during the 2013 Youth Provincial Championships. In 2013 we hosted Futsal Provincial Championships after a long hiatus. The first edition of the tournament was well attended and very successful. Alberta Soccer is hoping to build on this success to see Futsal grow as an alternative version of Indoor Soccer for interested groups. EIYSA hosted the third annual Tier I to Nationals in Edmonton. Building from the successes of the previous years, this tournament was a fantastic experience for all of the coaches and athletes involved.

Special Events 2013 was a remarkable year for events that engaged our Members and other special people from across the province.

Women's National Team in Edmonton and Calgary

One Day One Goal

After the success the Canadian Women's National Team had at the London Olympics, their rockstar status was truly understood when five members of the team touched down to deliver camps in Edmonton, Red Deer and Calgary. Erin McLeod, Christine Sinclair and Karina LeBlanc made an appearance at the Coaching Symposium delivered in Calgary in February where they spoke to soccer enthusiasts and delivered a training session for one lucky team.

September 21 of each year marks Peace Day all around the world. In support of this initative, soccer games are played on almost every continent in the spirit of Peace. In 2013, Alberta Soccer joined forces with FC Edmonton and Free Footie, a free Edmonton soccer league for school aged players from high risk neighbourhoods to host a One Day One Goal Street Soccer Event at the City Market in Dowtown Edmonton. An AMSL player joined a Regional Performance Centre player and a Free Footie player on a three person team. 16 teams played street soccer all day while the Market was going on, all in the spirit of Peace with all donations going to Free Footie.

Erin McLeod continued her presence in the province with goalkeeper clinics and speaking engagements in both Red Deer and Edmonton. Sinclair and LeBlanc than made the drive North to Edmonton to meet up with fellow teammates Rhian Wilkinson and Diana Matheson to deliver four training sessions to over 250 young soccer players and speak at a Corporate Luncheon in front of the Mayor of Edmonton, corporate guests and soccer teams alike. Tickets for the training sessions sold out in a staggering four hours after they went on sale.

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT To the Board of Directors of Alberta Soccer Association We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Alberta Soccer Association, which comprise the statement of financial position as at October 31, 2013, the statements of operations, changes in net assets and cash flows for the year then ended, and notes, comprising a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information. Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with Canadian accounting standards for not-for-profit organizations, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditors' Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with Canadian generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on our judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, we consider internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained in our audit is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

KPMG LLP is a Canadian limited liability partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity. KPMG Canada provides services to KPMG LLP.


Page 2 Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Alberta Soccer Association as at October 31, 2013, and its results of operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Canadian accounting standards for not-for-profit organizations. Comparative Information Without modifying our opinion, we draw attention to Note 1(a) to the financial statements which describes that Alberta Soccer Association adopted Canadian accounting standards for not-for-profit organizations on November 1, 2012 with a transition date of November 1, 2011. These standards were applied retrospectively by management to the comparative information in these financial statements, including the statements of financial position as at October 31, 2012 and November 1, 2011 and the statements of operations, changes in net assets and cash flows for the year ended October 31, 2012 and related disclosures. We are not engaged to report on the restated comparative information, and as such, it is unaudited.

ALBERTA SOCCER ASSOCIATION Notes to Financial Statements Year ended October 31, 2013

Nature of operations: Alberta Soccer Association (the "Association") provides the administrative and technical development framework for all soccer programs within the Province of Alberta. The Association, incorporated under the provisions of the Societies Act of Alberta, is a non-profit organization within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and is exempt from income taxes.

1.

Significant accounting policies: (a) Basis of presentation: On November 1, 2012 the Association adopted Canadian accounting standards for not-forprofit organizations, Part III of the CICA Handbook - Accounting ("Part III"). These are the first financial statements prepared in accordance with Part III. The Association previously issued financial statements for the year ended October 31, 2012 using generally accepted accounting principles prescribed by Part V of the CICA Handbook - Accounting. In preparing these financial statements, the transitional provisions of Section 1501, Firsttime Adoption by Not-for-Profit Organizations have been applied. Section 1501 requires retrospective application of Part III with certain exemptions and retrospective exceptions. The transition date is November 1, 2011 and all comparative information provided has been presented by applying Part III. The Association has not elected to use exemptions permissible under Section 1501. The effects of adopting Part III resulted in no change to net assets as at November 1, 2011 or the comparative statement of operations and cash flows presented in these financial statements. (b) Use of estimates: The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the year. Actual results could differ from those estimates. (c) Inventories: Inventories distributed for no or nominal value or consumed in the delivery of services are stated at the lower of cost and net replacement cost. Inventory held for sale is stated at the lower of average weighted cost and net realizable value.

Significant accounting policies (continued): (d) Contributed services: The work of the Association is dependent on the voluntary services of many members. Due to the difficulty of determining fair value of these services, contributed services are not recognized in the financial statement. The Association may receive distributable materials for distribution to member organizations. The Association does not recognize the revenue or related expense for these materials. (e) Property and equipment: Property and equipment are stated at cost and donated assets are recognized at fair value. Amortization is provided using the straight-line method and following annual rates:

Asset

Rate

Office equipment Technical equipment Computer equipment Leasehold improvements

(f)

20% 20% 33% Lease term

Revenue recognition: The Association follows the deferral method of accounting for revenue. Fees are recognized as revenue in the year for which services are provided. Fees received in advance are recorded as deferred revenue. Restricted contributions received in the year that relate to future expenditures are recorded as deferred revenue. Unrestricted contributions are recognized as revenue when received. Contributions for the acquisition of property and equipment and donated property and equipment are recorded as unamortized capital contributions and recognized to income on the same basis as the amortization of the assets for which the contributions were received. Excess revenue (expenditure) reported in the statement of changes in net assets for investment in property and equipment are the net amount of depreciation and revenue attributable to property and equipment and represent a transfer of unrestricted net assets. Interest income is recorded on a time proportion basis. Interest income earned on restricted contributions that is similarly restricted by the contributor is recorded as deferred revenue on a time proportion basis until the eligible expenditures have been incurred at which time the interest is recognized as revenue.

The use of casino cash is restricted under agreement with the Alberta Gaming & Liquor Commission. The cash must be used for expenditures approved by Alberta Gaming & Liquor Commission, including officials, registration fees, facility rentals and some administration costs. The Association has not drawn on all of these funds at year end but has met the expenditure requirements to recognize these funds as revenue.

3.

Term deposits: The term deposits, measured at amortized cost, mature between December 30, 2013 and January 7, 2016 bearing interest at 0.50% to 1.25%. The term deposit held at November 1, 2011 was pledged as security against a previously issued $15,000 letter of credit required by an agreement with Ticketmaster Canada Ltd., matured November 21, 2011 bearing interest at 0.75%.

$

39,424 41,000 42,644 14,000

The Association is also responsible for its share of occupancy cost and realty taxes associated with the premises.

10. Financial instrument risks and concentration of risk: The Association’s financial instruments consist of cash, term deposits, accounts receivable and accounts payable and accrued liabilities. The Association's operations are concentrated to Alberta and all banking is concentrated to one large, federally registered and insured financial institution. The Association’s accounts receivable are primarily comprised of amounts due from various local soccer districts and associations and collegiate associations in Alberta with some funds due from the national governing body. The exposure to credit risk is limited to the amounts receivable for which local soccer districts and associations are required to be in good standing to participate in the Association, other strategic partners such as collegiate associations and others. When there are doubts concerning collection, an allowance is provided by the Board who reviews what actions, if any, they may take against the local districts and associations or other debtor. The credit risk exposure in the current year is unchanged from the prior year. Substantially all of the Association’s operations are transacted in Canadian currency, accordingly foreign currency risk is not considered significant. The nature of investments is limited to interest bearing bank issued deposits and interest rate risk is not considered significant to the operations of the Association.
