7. The club will have the final say on all player placements but will look to place like-minded players together where possible.

8. U7,U8,Will be invited out to assessments but those teams are created with friend requests as the priority and then looking at like-minded players next.

Players are to arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled time and will check-in at the front reception area where they will be advised on what pinnie and team field they will be on.  Please ensure players are ready to take part in soccer activities with club training shirts, club training shorts, soccer socks and cleats or shoes.

Recreational Program we take into considerations friend requests, previous team roster and look to continue to group like-minded players together. Recreational players assessed at a higher level will be invited out to take part in the competitive session, but this will be optional.

Competitive Program players go through an assessment with field staff in varying formats of 2vs2 up to 7vs7.  This may also include friendlies and club games within an age group regardless of group.

If you still need to purchase a club training kit you can do that at the Reception inside the Villains Training Centre. Training kit consists of Club Dri Fit shirt, Shorts and training socks.

Teams will be placed as a training group from the previous season but will include everyone from that age group. New players will be added to the training group and run through pre season camps before final team selections. 

Players who are in the competitive program may be placed on recreational teams but will continue the full competitive training program.

RECREATIONAL VS. PERFORMANCE STREAM

Recreational Stream

Our recreational stream program is designed for the player that is involved in multiple activities. The program builds on the House League ” Grassroots Young Villains” by introducing players to the game in a fun setting where they develop soccer skills and knowledge of the game while also learning life skills such as sportsmanship, teamwork and respect. Playing time is as close to equal as possible to be fair to all players. The Club will attempt to keep teams together from season to season where possible to allow the players to build a strong friendship and sense of community. Normally as players move into U12 and older this is easily achieved. All players (U7 and U19) will get consistent technical training or skill centre programming through a season. This could be 6-8 sessions or 8-12 sessions pending the age of the player. Our Club staff who are certified through Alberta Soccer will run the sessions to help better prepare the players for games while also increasing everyone’s skill set. We feel this will take pressure off the coaches and teams can then have an optional team practice if they need or when they need through the season.

Competitive Stream Development

This program is designed to meet the needs of the top players in the city or players who want to be provided with more training and sessions. Players registering in the Development program will be automatically registered into the Golden Goal Soccer Academy at the time of registration. Academy players will receive 1-3 sessions per week under the direction of Munib Koric. The number of sessions and length of session is determined by the length of the program season and the age of the player. The fee is already included in club registration when you go to register into the competitive stream. Please note players in the recreational stream are able to take extra Academy sessions and should reach out to the Villains registrar to get this included in your registration fees.

EUROPEAN TOURS

The Real Madrid Camp Experience offer’s the unique and exciting opportunity to experience specialized soccer training through this official partnership between Calgary Villains & Real Madrid Foundation. The camps will bring expert UEFA coaches from Madrid, educated under the world’s most successful soccer team methodology, to help young players improve their soccer skills. The camp will be run by Madrid staff and supported by our own UEFA Pro Coach Munib Koric.

Registration will take place through our Powerup Memberzone Portal.

Volunteer Levy

In order for the club to function at our best we need volunteer help! As a result, the Board has decided to add a volunteer levy to the fees which started in the Outdoor 2019 season. This is especially important in seasons when we have a Casino.  That said, families can work off the Volunteer Levy by assisting in coaching or managerial roles, tryouts, start and end of season inventory, assisting with evaluations, assessments and club-wide events. 10 Hrs are needed within our system to cover your Volunteer levy. Volunteer levies are almost universally instituted by our competitor clubs and many are higher than the $100 we charge. When a family completes the volunteer requirement the $100.00 will be returned to their Member zone account at the end of the season as a credit to be used in the following season. 

As it is easier for us to budget and administer a revenue adjustment for the next season rather than a series of refunds in the current season the Board decided to refund the Volunteer fee as a credit to the next season. HOWEVER, if a player decides to leave the program and a volunteer fee is owed by the Club the fee will be paid upon request.

Please volunteer to help us make our Club and our programs even better in the future!

Uniform Policy

The club uniform plays an integral part in the forging of club identity and in building both a sense of community and of pride in the organization. This can only be accomplished if all Calgary Villains F.C teams wear the complete club uniform so that no matter what the division, no matter what the occasion, the team can be readily identified as representing Calgary Villains F.C.

We have made a brand new design launch for the club that has outfitted our U9 to U19 Program. This is part of the club’s new rebranding initiative with Macron. Players will be given club shorts and club socks when they first registered with the club in U9-U19 Program of play.  Each successive season players will be provided game socks, but players will need to purchase new game shorts when they lose a pair or need a larger set.

    Villains Angels Subsidy

    As a club, Calgary Villains F.C operates on a break-even budget: the money we raise through player subscriptions, fundraising and sponsorship is spent entirely to provide equipment, practice facilities, CMSA league and field fees. Essentially, what comes in, goes out and we need the fees we charge to balance our budgets.

    Many Families playing with the club cannot afford the fees necessary to participate in the Calgary soccer development experience and these families can apply for financial assistance through awesome programs like ” Kidsport” and ” Jumpstart”. However, there are many families in Calgary accessing these programs and, due to funding limitations, these programs can only afford to pay a portion of our Club’s breakeven costs. It is important to also notice that families can only use these programs once per calendar year. Families who are supported by these programs must provide information detailing their income, resources and expenditures. Once approved by Kidsport or Jumpstart our club is made aware that the family meets a financial need.

    The Club sponsors the balance of costs for these players but, in the current economic environment, it is challenging for the Club to make ends meet as more and more families need help. We are therefore reaching out to you, our members, for your help. If you are able, through our program ” The Villains Angels”, you can contribute to a fund that will help support those children in our program who are in need from U3-U18.

    You may make a general contribution or choose to support a particular child or family. You can make an anonymous contribution or be recognized on our Villains Angel’s page on the website; you may contribute individually or through your company and any amount would be greatly received. We have generous uniform sponsors who pay for uniform and equipment rights Club wide so this program does not include naming rights and does not contemplate sponsorship for individual teams.

    If you are interested in helping families in need in our program please contact:
