The Provincial Qualifier Cup Competition (PQCC): the competitive pathway for CMSA teams interested in qualifying for Alberta Soccer Provincial Championships.
Teams U13, U15 and U17 at all tiers can opt-into the CMSA Provincial Qualifier Cup Competition. The CMSA Provincial Qualifier Cup Competition matches will run alongside the league in a single elimination knock-out with the number of rounds determined based on the number of teams who opt-in. This competition will run for both Indoor and Outdoor Leagues.
Why This Competition?
A league winner will still be determined at all age groups and tiers but the pressure on teams to ‘win-at-all-costs’ to qualify for provincials through the league has been removed
The CMSA Provincial Qualifier Cup Competition provides a different experience outside of league play for those teams who are wanting that path to provincials
Different competition pathways support coach development and shifts behaviours in league play to ensure players are receiving equitable playing time and developmental opportunities
The CMSA Provincial Qualifier Cup Competition provides the opportunity for ALL teams interested in an opportunity at qualifying for provincials
CMSA believes that the modifications will support development through the league enhancing the experience and learning of all participants
