If you live in Rutherford, Rutherford Heights, MacEwan, Creekwood Chappelle, Chappelle Gardens, Paisley, Desrochers, Heritage Valley Town Centre, Graydon Hill or Hays/Jagare Ridge, you select Heritage Point in the dropdown menu as your community (the system may not default this option).
For the 2020 outdoor season, children born in 2016 or earlier are able to participate in the program.
Registration is a TWO STEP process. If you do not already have one, create a family account at emsasoccerportal.com and a profile for each member of the family. After registering online, you are REQUIRED to attend an in-person registration session to drop off your registration, supporting documents and deposit cheque. Refer to the Registration Info section for more information.
You will need a current HPCL membership card. You can purchase one online through EFCL.org or in person at Servus Credit Union locations. Fees will apply. You can also buy one at the League’s monthly meetings or AGM. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. Refer to the membership section of the website for more information.
For each child in the outdoor community program, print out your online registration from your emsasoccerportal.com account and bring it to one of the in-person registration sessions along with:
- separate registration fee cheque for each player with the current date or proof of on-line payment (email receipts)
- proof of residence in Heritage Point (driver’s license or utility bill with your name and address on it)
- proof of child(ren)’s age (birth certificate or health care card)

In-person registration for the 2020 season will take place at Johnny Bright School (1331 Rutherford Rd):
Tuesday Feb. 11, 6:00-9:00 pm
Saturday Feb. 22, 9:30 am-1:30 pm
A volunteer deposit is a cheque for $200 post dated to September 30 of the current year that each family provides to HPCL to be held until they fulfill an outlined volunteer contribution to the soccer program or League. Only one deposit cheque is required per family (regardless of the number of players per family). If the volunteer contribution is met and confirmed by the League, the cheque will be destroyed. All other cheques will be deposited. Volunteer contributions include: coaching, serving as team mangers or equipment manager, helping at in-person registration sessions in February, volunteering for the League (e.g. casino fundraiser, events, equipment distribution, inventory, etc.). Refer to the Team/Player Info section on our website.
Note – Club Soccer is separate from Community Soccer and both have volunteer requirements. A single volunteer contribution made during the year cannot be used to meet the requirements for both Club and Community.
Yes, you can contact groups such as Kidsport (www.kidsportcanada.ca) or Jumpstart (www.jumpstartcanadiantire.ca). If you are eligible for funding and have applied to one of these organizations, please note this in the comment section during your online registration – be sure to tell us from which group you are requesting assistance. A copy of a confirmation email from the agency receiving your request is required to be submitted along with your registration form at an in-person session.
Note – it can take 6-8 weeks for these groups to process your requests and funding will need to be approved before February 28.
You will need to pay your $ 200 volunteer payment at the time for registration (cheque only) and if you manage to volunteer during the season, your payment will be refunded.
Yes, online registration (emsasoccerportal.com) has an option to pay by credit card. If you wish to pay by cheque, please indicate so during the online registration and bring the cheque to an in-person registration session. You will need a separate registration cheque per child. You cannot pay your volunteer deposit or jersey deposit by credit card, unless you select Decline to Volunteer as your volunteer role.
The option of credit card payment on-line ends at the end of February and any late registrants will need to pay by cheque.
Holding cash is a risk. We are responsible for your money and we believe the safest way to avoid misappropriation of the funds is to ask for payments to be made by cheque only.
Yes, participants can request a maximum of two friends during the online registration process. Participants can also request a coach. Friend and Coach requests are not guaranteed but we do try our best.
Note – if you are requesting to play with a friend from another community, please add the name of their home community next to the child’s name.
Transfer requests can be made during the online registration process. All requests are reviewed but are not guaranteed.
Yes, parents/guardians will be advised of the team photo date at the start of the season.
Each team is provided a reimbursement (max. $50) which the team can use to hold a year end celebration.
