APPENDIX A: HONOUR ROLLS APPENDIX B: AUDIT
MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD As we look back on the past year, the first thing that comes to mind is pride. Pride in the players who made 2017 a great year for the “Beautiful Game”. From the youngest players' first steps on a small-sided pitch to the Albertans who excelled on the international stage with our national teams, Alberta is a force in providing a solid pathway to participation and excellence. Thank you to the teams who represented us across the country – making us proud with your fair play, your championship play, and your enthusiasm for the game.
the Association experienced both regret and happiness for Richard and Marissa's future endeavours. Richard was the backbone of the Association during its rebuilding years, always reminding us of our accountability to Alberta's soccer communities. Although Richard will be missed, we welcome and congratulate his successor, Shaun Lowther, in his new role as Alberta Soccer's Executive Director. The Association made solid progress in implementing the strategic plan and strengthening the game for the ever-increasing number of players across Alberta. We must continue working together to address the pressures we face in retaining players, coaches, and referees - ensuring members have the support to deliver their programs effectively and efficiently. As we move forward, it's important to share knowledge, practices, and solutions between Districts, so every member benefits from the success of others. Working in a systematic and cooperative manner can only benefit soccer in Alberta.
We would be hard-pressed to achieve success if it weren't for those who gave their time and effort to ensure that every game was a success for every player. Soccer wouldn't be in the position it is if not for the folks who unselfishly went out of their way to help each player reach their potential. Thank you to the parents, coaches, referees, managers, administrators, and supporters who create the environment for, and encourage the hearts of, every soccer player in the province. As the Board of Directors, we are grateful for the continued support and encouragement from the District executives who have enabled genuine dialogue and provided input and advice as we move down the “good governance” pathway. We look forward to a continued partnership with each of the Districts as we adjust and evolve our programming and support to all players and Districts. Your ongoing support and valued input is vital to the growth of soccer in the province.
To highlight the benefit of shared knowledge, we look to the Development of Women in Soccer Committee, who over the past year engaged other similar committees and government organizations across Canada's Sport Industry. In doing so, the Committee gained insight on various best practices, which furthered our mission to achieve gender equity in our game. The Board and its Committees continue to monitor the financial health of the Association closely, with a view to maintaining a quality level of service and programming for our membership. The staff remains committed to developing innovative programming and achieving operational efficiencies.
It has been an interesting year, with the announcement that the Canadian Premier League (CPL), Canada’s highly anticipated professional men’s soccer league, is set to debut in Spring 2019. Coupled with that, Canada joined the USA and Mexico in a World Cup bid, and the City of Edmonton has begun preparing a host city submission. We continue to work on our governance documentation in conjunction with the Canadian Soccer Association, as we align the governance systems to benefit the overall state of soccer in Canada. This is not an easy task and the significant contributions from the Districts are important, as evidenced by the thoughtful discussions at our September planning meeting.
Our grassroots programming continued building a strong foundation for soccer development through the Alberta and Canada Soccer Pathways. This development begins by inspiring a lifelong passion for soccer among players, parents, and coaches – a purpose the Technical Department does an excellent job of achieving. The Board is grateful to the Alberta Soccer staff and Committee members for their tireless work in ensuring the smooth operation of the Association and the delivery of its programs.

MISSION: To provide leadership for soccer excellence in Alberta by fostering and promoting: - a strong infrastructure for sound governance - quality programs and services to safeguard the sport's long-term prosperity
In 2016, with guidance from its members, Alberta Soccer launched its 2016-19 Strategic Plan, focusing on six core priorities: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

In the first year, the Association gained momentum and reached many of the ambitious goals it set out to achieve. In 2017, two years into the current Plan, and the progress continued - reflecting Alberta Soccer's vision and mission and respecting the expectations of soccer communities across the province. In particular, 2017 saw the expansion of Alberta Soccer's programming to include more opportunities for those in rural areas. The coaching program introduced the regional C Licence course, which tripled the number of coaches who enrolled as compared to previous years. The excellence program launched the Rural ID event to more effectively scout rural players for invitation to the U13 Provincial Teams. Mini Stars grew beyond its Edmonton and Calgary offerings to include Winter Training in nine additional communities across the province. And finally, the referee program added 10 new instructors throughout rural Alberta while continuing to develop online education opportunities. 2

COACHING Alberta Soccer continues to lead the way in the phased implementation of Canada Soccer's coaching program and alignment with LTPD principles.
Manager, who assisted with the delivery of the entirely new B Licence curriculum. A total of 25 coaches from Alberta and Saskatchewan took part in the course. In 2017, five AB coaches completed their evaluations and earned the status of Certified B Licence Coach.
Considerable increase was seen in trained community coaches - In 2016-17, the Coach Education department held 94 community workshops, with 1,485 coaches 'trained' in the Community Stream. This included FIFA 11+ Training for 11-a-side coaches and Movement Prep Training for those who coach in small-sided game formats. Overall, the larger number of courses resulted in a 13.8% increase in trained coaches over the previous year.
Canada Soccer continued to support the Women in Coaching Program – Working with Canada Soccer, the Association supported female coaches who were working towards their Provincial B Licence. Five women completed the mentorship program last year after starting in 2016, while two additional women joined the program in 2017. Looking forward to 2018, Alberta Soccer will offer an expanded coach mentorship program through the Women in Sport Leadership Coach Developer Initiative. This project, which is supported by the Coaching Association of Canada and Alberta Sport Connection, will welcome ten new participants.
Licencing Stream courses noted a significant increase in registrations - This is due in large part to the implementation of the regionalized delivery of the C Licence course to communities outside the traditional Edmonton and Calgary host locations. The Association intends to expand on this by offering module-based and online component courses - ensuring as many coaches as possible can access the course, regardless of their location.
Jim Loughlin, Director of Coach Education and Player Development at Alberta Soccer, was awarded the prestigious Don Watts Coach Developer Award for his work developing Alberta coaches. His contributions as a National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) Multi-sport and Sport Learning Facilitator and Evaluator have proven invaluable to the soccer community, and to Alberta as a whole.
C Licence courses were hosted throughout the province- Courses were hosted in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat (15 participants), Red Deer (18 participants), Fort McMurray (9 participants), Calgary Minor (34 participants), and St. Albert (36 participants). All told, 112 coaches earned the Trained C Licence coach status. An additional 11 coaches completed their evaluations and earned the full C Licence Coach certification.

REFEREE PROGRAM Achievements The province saw 23 officials upgraded from District to Regional status and one official earned their Regional to Provincial upgrade.
In 2016-17, Alberta Soccer continued its steady gains in referee recruitment and development opportunities – noting a 4% increase in the number of registered officials throughout the province over the previous year.
29 Alberta referees represented the province at the Calgary-hosted, Canada Soccer U15 Club National Championships in October. Kurtis Nozack and Mike Stacey were both appointed to Canada Summer Games in August.
Education and Development The Association's referee department held 212 courses which were attended by 4262 students.
Dave Gantar was appointed as Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in the MLS Cup Final. He also traveled to China in November to help set up their VAR system.

GRASSROOTS DEVELOPMENT Over the past year, the Alberta Soccer Grassroots department continued to gain traction in the promotion and implementation of the Long Term Player Development and Preferred Training Models. To aid in this process, Alberta Soccer released two videos: This is Grassroots and the Preferred Training Model Video Playbook - both of which can be viewed on Alberta Soccer's channel on YouTube.
took part in the opportunity, the program was able to reach the far corners of the province, ultimately meeting with 65% of the Alberta Soccer districts. In addition to the visits conducted through 23-in-one, the department successfully provided a range of technical support to grassroots communities. Overall, the Grassroots department impacted 1,099 coaches, 3,605 players, and countless more parents in Alberta. FUNdamentals Festivals: Supported by Servus, the FUNdamentals Festivals embraced five new and several returning communities with the intent of training and implementing the Preferred Training Model (PTM) within the hosting communities' grassroots programming. Twelve communities, 730 players, and 170 coaches enjoyed the benefits of the FIFA and Canada Soccer endorsed PTM.
2017 WAS ANOTHER ACTIVE YEAR - ONE FILLED WITH LOTS OF "MILES AND SMILES." Mini Stars: This program once again saw great success supporting player, coach, and community development. With many of the past participants progressing to the Provincial Training Program and beyond, it's clear that the Mini Stars program provides an excellent opportunity for player identification. During the last year, 294 players took part in Winter Training, which expanded beyond Edmonton and Calgary to include Camrose, Cochrane, Okotoks, Medicine Hat, Fort McMurray, Fort St. John, and Grande Prairie. Fall Training in Edmonton and Calgary saw 132 participants. Highlights of the program include the Showcase and Residential Camp, which welcomed 160 and 60 players respectively.
Summer Camps: In 2017, Alberta Soccer embraced a unique multisport partnership opportunity with Alberta Volleyball and Basketball Alberta. Over a five-week period in the summer, a series of multi-sport camps were held at the Saville Centre in Edmonton. The camps were a great success for the 134 participants and will continue on in 2018. In September, an additional summer camp was hosted in Fort McMurray, with 52 players taking part in the back-to-school camp.
District Outreach: Last year, the grassroots team aimed to visit each of the Association's member districts through its 23-in-one initiative. Although not all members
EXCELLENCE PROGRAM Alberta Soccer remains steadfast in its work to develop soccer in our province and country while aligining with Canada Soccer's Player Pathway. The Association continued its positive relationship with both FC Edmonton and the Vancouver Whitecaps - creating opportunities for local players to reach National and Professional levels of play.
previous attendees: BC, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. The Alberta teams performed well, playing quality soccer that resulted in several Alberta players being identified by staff from the Vancouver Whitecaps and Canada Soccer. REX and Academy Centres Alberta Soccer's first year of REX programming proved highly beneficial for the Association in identifying top prospects, with an increase in the number of female players moving on to National Team activities being seen. Over 80 players were enrolled in the REX Centres between 2016-17.
Limited trials for U13 teams This year marked the first time that Alberta Soccer limited the U13 team trials - only inviting players who were born in 2005. To accommodate this change, the Association asked Club Technical Directors to notify Alberta Soccer of any outstanding underage players so they could arrange for scouting outside the trials.
To further their development, players from the two REX Centres and the Whitecaps Alberta South and FC Edmonton Academies had the opportunity to play games against each other throughout the program.
U13 Rural District Talent Identification Event In early September, the Technical Department successfully hosted the first Talent Identification event for Rural Districts. The event was designed to bring like-minded and like-skilled players from outlying districts together to showcase their abilities while exposing them to the Provincial team program and staff. Alberta Soccer welcomed 10 teams from six districts to the event, resulting in 12 players being identified to participate in the 2017-18 Winter Training program.
Ricky King was appointed as the Whitecaps Alberta South Head Coach in September, and his professionalism and dedication have already begun to show a positive impact on programming. Canada Summer Games Team Alberta impressed at the 50th annual Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg. The women's squad earned a 4th place finish, with Nicole Panas and Tanya Boychuk named as Tournament All-stars. The men's team brought home silver, with Brennan Hebert, Sam Gagne, Oscar Miranda, and Abraham Dukuly selected to the Tournament All-star team.
Winter Training The Provincial Teams completed the Winter Training program by competing in a showcase event hosted by the Vancouver Whitecaps in Richmond, BC in March 2017. For the first time, the competition included Nova Scotia, PEI, and Newfoundland and Labrador teams, in addition to

SERVUS YOUTH PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIPS In 2017, Alberta Soccer, together with hosting districts, featured 25 indoor and 40 outdoor competitions. The 2017 host communities included Camrose (CASA), CMSA, EMSA, Fort McMurray, Leduc (Battle River), Lethbridge, Red Deer, and Sherwood Park. This year marked the final appearance of the U12, U14, U16, and U18 categories. In the future, to align with the U15 and U17 Canada Soccer National Competitions, Alberta Soccer Provincial Championships will be held for the following age groups: U13, U15, U17, and U19. Alberta Soccer was fortunate to partner with the Servus Credit Union, who was once again the Title Sponsor of the Youth Provincial Championships. Booster Juice also continued its support, serving as the Presenting and Fair Play Sponsor at the Outdoor Youth Competitions. Sherwood Park District Soccer Association hosted the U14-17 age groups at Tier I & Tier I to Nationals competitions. For the second year running, all gold medal matches were streamed live via Sports Canada TV. Calgary Minor Soccer hosted theÂ Canada Soccer U15 National Championships, and the massive volunteer base they provided was a great asset to the competition.

SENIOR PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIPS As in previous years, Alberta Soccer ran 13 indoor and 13 outdoor Senior Provincial Championship competitions. In 2017, these were hosted in Edmonton and Calgary by Edmonton District, Calgary Women's, and Calgary United Soccer Associations. At Senior SoccerFest, the women's side saw Edmonton Victoria rise up against Northwest United, who had defeated them in the previous year's gold medal match, to claim the Jubilee Shield and their spot at Nationals in Surrey, BC. On the men's side, Callies Major got the better of their opponents, Edmonton Green & Gold earning them the Championship title and their right to compete for Canada Soccer's Challenge Trophy. In 2017, Alberta Soccer welcomed the Pint as its sponsor for the Senior Fair Play Award. Canada Soccer's Western Masters and Regional Classics Championships took place in Edmonton, with Scottish Masters Major and Green & Gold Classics Major representing the province. Scottish earned the silver medal and Green & Gold brought home bronze.

ALBERTA MAJOR SOCCER LEAGUE As the pinnacle of amateur adult soccer in the province, the Alberta Major Soccer League (AMSL) once again provided entertaining and quality soccer for its 16 participating teams and their supporters in 2017.
Women’s Coach of the Year Rick Haxby, Edmonton Victoria Men’s Coach of the Year Martin Anderson, Edmonton Green & Gold
The eight men's and eight women's teams participated in 112 games between May and August - all with the goal of winning the League Championship and earning a spot at the Canada Soccer National Championships. Edmonton Victoria women led the women's side with an 11-0-3 record, ultimately winning over Northwest United, who followed behind by only two points. In the men's group, it was a tight race, with Calgary Callies coming out on top with 28 points and a 9-4-1 record. Edmonton Green & Gold and Edmonton Scottish fell closely behind with 27 points a piece.

At the 2017 Canada Soccer National Championships in Surrey, BC, Edmonton Victoria dominated, taking home the Jubilee Trophy. This was the seventh time the team achieved a first-place finish at Nationals - and the fourth time in only five years. On the men's side, Calgary Callies placed ninth overall. The league's 26th season saw the Red Deer Renegades withdraw early on, ultimately leaving a vacancy for a qualifying team to enter the women's side of the competition. After placing at the top of the Premier Division in EDSA, the Edmonton Green & Gold Premier Women's team earned the right to enter the league next season. In the South, Calgary Blizzard SC successfully challenged Calgary Rapids FC and as such, will enter the league in 2018.
WOMEN IN SOCCER For the third year, Alberta Soccer's Development of Women in Soccer Committee (DWSC) hosted its Women in Soccer Conference. In May 2017, the conference was held in Red Deer, with a powerful line-up of female leaders from across the country, including Lorraine Lafreniere (Coaching Association of Canada CEO), Bev Priestman (WNT EXCEL Director and WNT U17 Team Head Coach), Carmelina Moscato (Canadian WNT and 2012 Olympic bronze medalist), Sheena Dickson and Chantal Boudreau (FIFA Referees), and Cari Din (Olympic medalist and leadership expert). The conference welcomed 44 participants, each of whom gained both tangible and soft skills that will carry them forward in both their professional and personal lives. In a soccer environment with a female population between 26-37% (for players, coaches, and officials), the DWSC aims to promote, support and increase the numbers of female soccer participants in leadership roles and as players, coaches, and referees.
COMMUNICATIONS From the official website (albertasoccer.com) to the competitions site (competitions.albertasoccer.com) to the Alberta Major Soccer League site (albertamsl.com), Alberta Soccer has continued to expand the content being offered to its members online. In November 2016, the updated Alberta Soccer website was launched - providing a more user-friendly, mobile-responsive, and interactive experience for visitors. In addition to its websites, Alberta Soccer continued its online presence across a variety of social media platforms, including Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Flickr. Alberta Soccer continues to reach out to the media regarding its programs and special events and in 2016-17, the Association welcomed local media attention at the annual Women in Soccer Conference. As in previous years, Alberta Soccer offered access to live streaming of Tier I to Nationals, Challenge Cup, and Jubilee Shield gold medal matches. In total, 2,706 people visited the live stream webpage during Tier I to Nationals matches and 1,630 during the Challenge Cup and Jubilee Shield Finals. 12

FINANCIALS Alberta Soccerâ€™s financial position continues to remain strong and the commitment to strive towards achieving the goals within our Strategic Plan, without additional investment from the membership, remains unchanged. While Alberta Soccer occurred a loss for the first time since 2014, the correlating factors relating to this loss was due to a variety of reasons, notably: A 5% decrease in overall membership revenue; mostly due to the adjustment of moving into the new CSA per-player levy structure. Significant reduction in AMSL team fees in support of the continued success of this senior program. Addition of Canada Soccer Regional Excellence Program in partnership with CSA, FC Edmonton, and Whitecaps FC.
EXPENSES ALLOCATION Referee 10%
Youth 15% Admin 12%
The Association remains confident as our asset base continues to sit above $2 million and believe that with adjusted forecasting, this loss will not be repeated in future cycles. Other financial highlights were:
Coach 8% Senior 5%
Auditors once again returned an unqualified audit opinion; a judgement that Alberta Soccerâ€™s financial records and statements are fairly and appropriately presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Membership fees were reduced at all levels in order to aid and stimulate increased participation across the province; this equates to nine straight years of no membership fee increases. Provincial Merchandise sales successfully met the projected goal of revenue generation with a profit of approximately $54,000 over the 2016-17 indoor/outdoor season. Spending allocation was consistent with the strategic goal of moving as many dollars to onfield products as possible as administration spending allocation was reduced for the sixth straight year; this year by another 2%. Enhanced investment in coaches, players, and referees through new programming such as the Rural ID event, Rural C-Licence, and Festivals/District Outreach.
CSA 30% Admin 4%
