Member Organization Satisfaction Survey 

As part of SSA's commitment to providing quality service and value, we issue the Member Organization Satisfaction survey annually to hear from you and learn what we have done well this past year, and what we need to work on in the year to come! 
 
Please answer the questions as honestly and constructively as you can. Your feedback is very important to help us evaluate our performance and shape our future activities to be as beneficial as possible to you, our Member Organizations. 
 
Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey, and as always, for your tremendous efforts this past year! 
 
Deadline: January 19th

Managing Your Soccer Club Tutorial Now Available! 

The Managing Your Soccer Club Tutorial is now available to all Member Organization Board Members! Presented by Paul Varian of Capitis Consulting, the tutorial is designed to show: 
 
How the Saskatchewan Soccer system works
What you are responsible for when running an amateur soccer club (focusing on the board of directors)
Where you can get some help or share responsibility (you are not alone!)
This webinar is beneficial for Board Members of all Member Organizations and their affiliated clubs/zones. It is also a requirement of the PTSO 1 and PTSO 2 Club Licensing Levels (Criteria: ‘All new board members complete SSA Board Orientation’). Organizations that are current applicants of one of these levels, or organizations that have already achieved these levels, are required to have all Board Members complete this course by December 11, 2021. 
 
The tutorial consists of the 72-minute webinar, followed by a knowledge quiz, both of which can be completed at your own convenience. The platform used is Google Classrooms. 
 
 
If you have any questions, please contact Nicole at n.drozda@sasksoccer.com.

Reminder!! There are only 4 DAYS LEFT to submit SSA Recognition Award Nominations! Despite there being a lack of competition this summer, we still feel it is important to celebrate the accomplishments of our members. We know many of you competed in our Indoor Provincials way back in February and early March, and we also know many have had to go above and beyond to bring our sport back during the pandemic, and we want to celebrate those accomplishments. 
 
SSA extends an invitation to you to nominate players, teams, coaches, referees, volunteers, and organizations that exemplify the Values, Vision, and Mission of the SSA.?Award nominees and winners will be celebrated during the Recognition Celebration, March 20, 2021.

To register for any of the courses please go to your Member Organization’s RAMP registration platform.

BE SAFE! BE THE SOLUTION!
As a reminder, please continue to take care of yourself, your families, and others. 
Wash your hands frequently (it is the single most effective way of reducing infection spread).
Practice other good hygiene habits: do not touch your face/eyes/mouth with your hands and cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough (ideally with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow).
Clean and disinfect frequently touched workspace surfaces.
Maintain good general health (eat a balanced diet, get enough sleep, and move in moderation).
Stay home if you are sick
 
Our sport is underway during the pandemic. It's a challenging time, but support from our partners allows us to offer opportunities for kids to play. We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada. Nous reconnaissons l'appui financier du gouvernement du Canada.
