Open Sessions (Player Placements) 

As our organization has done in the past, we conduct open training sessions as opposed to tryouts for the outdoor season. Open training sessions are an opportunity for players to join one of our teams in advance of the outdoor season. All players attending an open training session, whether a returning players or new to our Club will be offered a spot in our program, as we have teams competing at multiple tiers.

Club team open sessions (Tiers 1-3) will take place during the month of March in advance of Outdoor 2023.  The U9 and U11 teams will have these sessions starting on March 13th with all the remaining teams (U13 and older, including AYSL) having theirs starting on March 20th.  All rosters will be finalized by March 31st.
For a player to attend these open sessions, simply contact the head coach of the appropriate birth year to set up a date for the player to join an open session.

Players whose birth year is deemed "out of scope", can request to be considered by contacting the Technical Director.

Please Note:
The open sessions at St. Albert Impact are "ongoing" and we reserve the right to "place" players up/down/across at any time, based on feedback/observation/performance.  This is to facilitate teams of both like-minded and like-skilled whilst recognizing the fluidity of player maturation and development.

U8/U9 Skill Centre

SASA offers an Academy training-based program for players within our U8/U9 age group who are interested in committing more time to their own development.

Overseen by SASA's Technical Director, players train twice a week. Age-specific teams will be formed to compete in external leagues where no statistics or standings are kept. These league games allow the introduction of game tactics which are an integral part of each player's development.

U11 - U17 Programs

Player Development Program (PDP)

PDP Photo

This program is designed to meet the needs of players with the desire to train and perform at the highest youth level possible.  The Player Performance Pathway that these athletes enter offers many aspects that will provide elements for them to meet their needs in achieving participation at the highest level.  The framework for the competition element of this program is suggested to include scouting events monitored by Canada Soccer as well as direct opportunities to be viewed by professional clubs and accredited post-secondary institutions.

All of the PDP Head Coaches will have a minimum of a CSA National B License or CSA National Youth License (or enrolled in a course).

For Indoor, the Impact PDP teams will be playing 11v11 matches on a regular basis with other National Licensed Club Teams, as well as teams from older age groups.

For Outdoor, the Alberta Youth Soccer League competition will be “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

-Planning and recovery time for clubs, coaches, players, and families.

PDP fees are $1160.00 for the Outdoor season and include all on-field training (2-3 times per week), licensed coaches, additional staff personnel such as Athletic Therapists, and league fees associated with this team.  These fees include fitness and sport psychology components.
