Goals of the CMSA Grassroots League
CMSA’s Grassroots League is modelled after national and international best practices and Canada SoccerGrassroots Standards.Theleague strives to provide children with a developmentally appropriate playing environment that allows expression, creativity,and development to flourish. Match Day provides players with more time on the field, more time on the ball, and flexible matchups through an open roster system.
This league encourages mixed-ability (balanced) groupings prioritizing social relationships as the basis of Match Day groups. This allows players to move between groups as required to ensure that each participant has a positive and developmentally appropriate match environment. The CMSA Grassroots League prioritizes enjoyment, so players want to come back next week and more importantly, for many seasons to come!
