About Us
Elliot Lake Minor Soccer consists of a developmental program for players aged 3 - 9, and a competitive program for players aged 10 and up.  We encourage participation, skill development, and most of all, fun.  
The developmental players are divided into 2 age groups:  U5 (ages 3 - 5) and U9 (ages 6 - 9).
They play on the soccer fields next to the Elliot Lake Secondary School (ELSS). 
The competitive program involves games with teams from nearby communities.  The players will be sorted into age groups based on the number of register players and the age divisions of our competition.  For example, U11 (ages 11 & under), U13 (ages 13 & under), U15 (ages 15 & under), and U18 (18 & under).  They will also play on the soccer fields next to ELSS, but may also travel to the soccer fields of other communities for game play.   
The coaches are volunteers, and there is at least one referee on each field.  
Players will need soccer shoes and shin pads to play, as well as comfortable shorts.  Elliot Lake Minor Soccer will provide soccer shirts, which are handed out by the coaches at the first game.  Players should bring water to drink.  Coaches and parents/guardians should plan on taking turns providing a refreshing snack at half-time.  You may also want to bring bug spray and sun screen, depending on the weather.
Soccer is played in all sorts of weather, including rain.  The executive may decide to cancel games due to heavy rain resulting in poor field conditions.   For safety reasons, the executive or referees may cancel games because of nearby lightning. Games may also be cancelled due to extreme weather conditions.
The executive and coaches of Elliot Lake Minor Soccer are all volunteers.  Great ideas are welcome, but remember that we are all busy people and putting great ideas into action takes time and help.  More volunteers are welcome, and if you are interested in having a position on the executive, please let us know through the Contact Us page.
