The 2010 Family Day Classic, hosted by the St. Albert Soccer Association (SASA), is under way at Servus Credit Union Place.
Historically the tournament has catered to tier I and II teams but due to the number of Alberta Soccer Association sanctioned tournaments for tiers I and II during the Family Day weekend, SASA decided to opened up this year’s tournament to tier III and community youth teams instead.
Fifty-eight teams were confirmed for the four-day tournament. Age divisions are U12 boys’ tiers III/IV, U12 girls’ tiers V/VI, U14 boys’ tiers III/IV, U14 girls’ tiers III/IV and V/VI/VII, U16 girls’ tiers III/IV and V/VI/VII, U16 boys’ tiers III/IV, U18 girls’ tiers III/IV and V/VI, as well as division one women and co-ed.
