Considered an integral part of the Canada Soccer Player Pathway (LTPD Stage 4), the Player Development Program (PDP) is defined by our National Association as the highest level of youth competition in our country. Available only to National Youth Club Licence holders, it will create a “best-on-best” Canada Soccer-aligned competition in our province.

As one of only 9 recipients of the National Youth Club Licence, EIYSA FC was excited to participate in the AYSL beginning in the 2021-2022 Indoor Season with the 2007 age group.  EIYSA FC introduced the 2008 age group into the AYSL for the outdoor 2022 season. 

The Alberta Youth Soccer League competition began play in 2021 with U14 and U15 age groups for both genders. Alberta Soccer has opted to launch one age group per year, until all age groups are onboarded in 2023. Each year, a new Under 14 group will be introduced to the league as the previous Under 14 group advances to the next age category.

The Alberta Youth Soccer League competition is “periodized” across a full calendar year, allowing for:

  • Scheduled breaks throughout the calendar year to avoid training overload,
  • Matches to be scheduled with adequate intervals between them, and
  • Planning and recovery time for clubs, coaches, players, and families.
