OUR VOLUNTEER POLICY

The TRSA soccer program is regarded as one of the most successful community programs within the city of Edmonton. TRSA is led by volunteers from within the community & takes a tremendous amount of time and effort to run a program of this calibre. Because of this, support from the families with children playing in our program is necessary to maintain the program's affordability & current standard level.

Please take a moment to review TRSA's Volunteer Policy.
