Tournament Sanctioning


All tournaments consisting of four or more teams AND any out-of-district teams, must be sanctioned by the Alberta Soccer Association (ASA).

To receive tournament sanctioning, you must first submit your tournament request application to CMSA for approval. Tournament requests will be reviewed by CMSA at our weekly staff meetings. If the tournament is approved by CMSA, it will be sent to ASA for sanctioning.

Please ensure you have carefully read the CMSA & ASA requirements, and are within the submission timelines, before submitting a tournament application.
