Canada Soccer has announced that National Youth Club Licence holder Calgary Blizzard has had its licence revoked due to player recruitment infractions. Calgary Blizzard will no longer be sanctioned to play in the Alberta Youth Soccer League.

“The standards set forth under the Canada Soccer Youth Club Licensing Program provide clear guidance on the expected behaviours of holders of the top-level National Youth Club Licence, specifically regarding the recruitment of players for club teams in standards-based leagues,” said Jason deVos, Canada Soccer’s Director of Development. “Calgary Blizzard have accepted the terms of the sanctions with regard to behaviours unbecoming a National Youth Club Licence holder and as such their licence and sanctioning for the AYSL have been removed in collaboration with Alberta Soccer and Calgary Minor Soccer Association.”

The removal of the National Youth Club Licence is effective immediately.
