Development vs Development Plus Programming
Our Development Stream (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 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 strong friendships and a sense of community. Typically 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 throughout the season of play. This could be 6-8 sessions or 8-12 sessions pending on the age of the player. Our Club staff who are certified in Youth License, Children License and C License will oversee this program. 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 it through the season.
Development Plus Stream
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 Plus 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 the session is determined by the program season and the player’s age. The fee is already included in club registration when you register for this stream and payment plans are created upfront to divide into instalments. 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.
Real Madrid Camp
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.
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, but over and above that, the Villains Training Centre has ample opportunity to help both pre and post-season of play. That said, families can work off the Volunteer Levy by assisting in coaching or managerial roles, tryouts, start and end-of-season inventory, evaluations, assessments, jamboree festival, parking marshall, and field maintenance support to name a few. 10 full hours completed are needed in roles outside of our team staff roles. Our competitor clubs almost universally institute volunteer levies but do not provide a way to work it off if needed. 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 for 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.
Please note that Head Coaches U7-U19 CMSA Program will get an additional $100.00 Credit applied to their account to use in the following season starting Outdoor 2023. Team Staff roles which include head coach, assistant coach and manager must all be approved in CMSA with Respect in sports, Making ethical decisions and any other necessary requirements by the league.
Please volunteer to help us make our Club and our programs even better in the future!
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 and club training kit so that no matter what the division, no matter what the occasion, the team can be readily identified as representing Calgary Villains F.C.
The club does not allow teams to purchase their own uniforms or training kit to be worn in any club events that are not apart of our currently approved designs.

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:
