The Medicine Hat Soccer Association is continuously striving to maintain an open, honest and transparent relationship with our membership while respecting our members and ensuring their safety and enjoyment of the beautfiul game. Therefore, the Medicine Hat Soccer Association (MHSA) Board of Directors would like to inform its members of a recent decision made by the Alberta Soccer Association (ASA). This decision was regarding the removal of a volunteer coach in the RASC Program in June 2014. The MHSA Board of Directors would like to acknowledge ASA's participation in this matter and thank them for a fair process that has allowed the MHSA Board of Directors an opportunity to improve our organization through the development of a clear policy on the Recruitment and Removal of Coaches within all of our programs. The final decision regarding this matter issued by the ASA is of public record as stated in their documentation and the MHSA fully supports this decision. The MHSA Board strongly believe that all coaches must follow the direction of the Board (including Coaches Codes of Conduct and adhering to Long Term Player Development guidelines) and regrettably if they fail to do so over several occasions a very difficult decision must be made in the best interest of our athletes. The MHSA Board of Directors would like to acknowledge and thank this volunteer coach for his many dedicated years of contribution to the association in numerous capacities.
The success of the MHSA and the programs it offers depends on volunteers. All coaches and assistant coaches will receive the necessary training and support to help them be successful. Help make your child's soccer experience a positive one, volunteer!
