Community Involvement » Calgary Minor Soccer Association

Shane Homes and the Calgary Minor Soccer Association have partnered together to ensure that youth soccer remains a sport that is accessible and affordable to all.

In 2008 Shane Homes and the Calgary Minor Soccer Association partnered in a three year sponsorship valued at $400,000 over 3 years to ensure that youth soccer remains a sport that is accessible and affordable to all. The Shane Homes sponsorship provides many great services such as jerseys, tournament and metal sponsorship, mentorship program, administrative grants, coaching development and staff assistance with design and promotion. Shane Homes recently announced that they will be sponsoring CMSA for another 3 year term starting 2011.

This sponsorship has helped to educate 1,500 coaches dealing with more than 20,000 children. “Calgary Minor Soccer is ever grateful to Shane Homes for a great three-year partnership built upon trust and a firm foundation for the development of soccer in Calgary,” says Daryl Leinweber executive director of the Calgary Minor Soccer Association. “Thanks to their $400,000 investment in the future of our youth, Shane Homes sponsored “Coach Education” and “Player Development” programs benefit over 1,500 volunteer coaches and literally, thousands of young players in all parts of Calgary. Shane Homes is helping keep soccer accessible and affordable for all Calgarians.”

The CMSA sponsorship has also contributed more than 3,600 uniforms, $30,000 in scholarships awarded to U18 players to further their post-secondary education, all-star tournaments, symposiums, conferences and more, all of which have helped to solidify the future of minor soccer in Calgary.
