Community Grassroots Soccer
Kilkenny Community League wants to thank you for all your time and dedication to our community! We would like to clear up some of the confusion around this year’s soccer program, and our decision to withdrawal from partnering with the Edmonton Minor Soccer Association. We apologize for not contacting coaches directly. We are very pleased to announce that Kilkenny Community League will be partnering with the Community Grassroots Soccer Academy (CGSA), along with our neighbours at McLeod, Fraser, Steele Heights, and Hairsine Community Leagues who founded and have already successfully run this program last year. Kilkenny has found that over the years, EMSA’s programming no longer aligned with our standards and expectations. We look forward to working with McLeod, Fraser, Steele Heights, and Hairsine Community Leagues, to provide youth with this fantastic program built for and by community. The CGSA has training for referees, coaches, and players, focussed on building skills. The Smaller team sizes allow for more touches on the ball and more individualized guidance for honing skills, all while still offering an affordable program. We look forward to having you join us on this journey and traverse the adventure that awaits with an open mind and the community spirit we know you all have. CGSA fees are listed below, none of which exceed
$200. And the average number of games is on par with other soccer programs. CGSA has merely done exactly what its name states and gone back to the grassroots of community soccer. Soccer Registration opens on Sunday, August 15th. You will need to fill out the online portion, and then come to an in-person session on one of our listed registration dates. I encourage everyone to go to the CGSA website www.cgsa.ca . If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We are happy to answer any questions about this exciting new program.

EPCOR Winter Stormwater Campaign
Stormwater Safety Campaign
Stormwater Facilities have a job to do; they are an important part of the stormwater drainage infrastructure in the city. They help prevent flooding during severe weather events and by collecting run off from city streets. Water moves through these facilities throughout the year creating instability and when combined with the substances that are washed into the facility from streets they become dangerous. Recreation on these facilities is prohibited. Families should find safe winter recreation alternatives.
Winter Home Preparedness
There are a number of things home owners can do in and around their homes to make sure their properties are safe and protected for the cold months ahead. We have prepared a short newsletter article (both a print and digital version available) that provides important tips such as how to prepare for power and water outages, locating water shutoff valves, preventing pipes from freezing, and more. Please help us share these important safety tips with residents by including this article in your community newsletters, on your Facebook page, website, etc.
Thank you for your commitment to ensuring the safety of the families in your community, we appreciate your support in our campaign. If you have any questions please reach out to Epcor.
Our Annual General Meeting is taking place November 5 @ 6:30pm
Want New Programs?
Do you think the Kilkenny Community League needs a new program? Maybe a dance or yoga class? Maybe an after school program? Maybe an art or cooking class? If you’d like to run one of these programs; drop us a line. These programs require volunteers to coordinate – and we think you, our fantastic community members – are up for the challenge. Please email Admin@Kilkenny.ab.ca to volunteer!
