SWEMSA offers indoor soccer for girls and boys born between 1996 & 2008. It's a fast-paced one-hour game played 6 on 6 in an arena with boards - players change on the fly, there's no out of bounds or offside. SWEMSA also offers a U4 (LITTLE KICKERS) program on Saturday for kids born in 2009.
The regular season runs from mid-October to mid-February. Age levels that qualify for playoffs may play into March.
EMSA (Edmonton Minor Soccer Association) schedules one game per week; SWEMSA schedules one practice per week at a school gym within our zone, except for the U4 (Little Kickers) program. Edmonton Soccer Facilities charge an admission fee for adult spectators age 18-59.

Teams are formed by the SWEMSA Age Level Directors. Communities in our zone sponsor teams for the season by supplying uniforms & equipment + the Head Coach. Players are placed on teams according to community of residence & whenever possible, by friend & Coach requests. Due to the lower number of players playing indoor compared to outdoor, teams may be comprised of players from many different communities. Indoor Refund Policy
