Bearspaw, February 26th,
2015 BGCA ANNOUNCEMENT ON BEARSPAW SOCCER PROGRAM
To whom it may concern,
Thank you for your continued patronage of the Bearspaw Soccer Program. It is one of the premiere addresses for grassroots soccer in the City of Calgary . We are proud of the development all of our players under the keen eye of our technical team, led by Andy Fleming. In order to grow this program further and allow the proper structure to be implemented, the Board of Directors of the Bearspaw Glendale Community (BGCA) has approached our partner Calgary Blizzard Soccer Club (CBSC). Together we have been establishing a proper pathway for developmental soccer, following the LTPD of Canada Soccer.
The Bearspaw Soccer Program is not an accredited club within the Canadian Soccer Association and the program has outgrown the realm of what BGCA is able to offer. The Board of Directors of CBSC and BGCA have established an agreement where all CMSA registered teams can be moved to Blizzard Soccer for the indoor season of 2015/16. In return, Bearspaw will host all house league players from the ages of U3 to U12, with Blizzard’s full support. This house program will allow BGCA to offer a quality product to our own community and increase the Bearspaw contingent in it.
In the current transition, Bearspaw will not offer any further U10 CMSA programs for outdoor and players are welcomed at Calgary Blizzard to develop further. For the next Indoor season, Bearspaw will also not offer a U6 and U8 CMSA program which will now be presented by CBSC, however, BGCA will be excited to offer our Bearspaw house soccer program to any current or new player interested.
We appreciate your patronage and are excited to offer a growing program to all of our players who are looking for proper development to reach their goal within our beautiful game.
With best regards,
253220 Bearspaw Road NW, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, T3L 2P5
