Post-Election Member Survey - please participate!

--> TAKE THE SURVEY: 
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CMFSC-Activating-Our-Voice

Prior to the municipal election last month, CMFSC took a proactive approach to encouraging our members to get active in our communities, through our membership and involvement with the Coquitlam Field Sports Association (CFSA).

Overall voter turnout across the Tri-Cities improved from in 2014 compared to 2011, which is the ultimate goal of any of these sort of mobilization activities:
OVERALL VOTER TURNOUT
Coquitlam:           22% (2011)  -->  26% (2014)
Port Coquitlam:   21% (2011)  -->  26% (2014)
Port Moody:        26% (2011) --> 36% (2014)

Specifically, in Coquitlam, the CFSA supported candidates (Craig Hodge, Brent Asmundson, Mae Reid, Teri Towner) were all successfully elected. Craig Hodge topped the polling and Dennis Marsden, a CMFSC coach/volunteer, was also elected as a first time councillor.

We are interested in measuring the effect of our campaign and quantifying our efforts to activate CMFSC’s voice. We would greatly appreciate if you could take a minute to provide feedback anonymously.

CMFSC is pleased to announce the roll-out of a new registration system from PowerUp Sports Management that will:
  • improve member service
  • enhance communication
  • reduce paper use, and
  • increase overall operational efficiency

The system is currently being piloted with our 2015 Premier League season, affecting just 225 of the club’s 3,500 players. Assuming a successful pilot, PowerUp will be rolled out club-wide with our 2015-16 season registration in the Spring of 2015.

PowerUp replaces Thriva, CMFSC’s previous registration system, and is integrated with the emergency management solution provided by ePACT Networks, which Premier League families successfully piloted earlier this year. The system also repatriates the payment processing capabilities within the club through services provided by Beanstream, a Canadian company like PowerUp.

For 2015 Premier League Registration, visit:
https://cmfsc.powerupsports.com
…then click the SIGN UP tab to create a new member profile.

Upon completion of a successful pilot, PowerUp will handle our player/team registration, member/volunteer communications, league/tournament scheduling and payment processing needs, and serve as the hub for other external systems, such as criminal record checks and emergency preparedness.

The late Domenic Mobilio to be honoured Saturday, October 4th, at BC Place: 'I know he'll be watching with a big smile'.
VANCOUVER, BC – As a young kid, Domenic Mobilio would often sneak under the fence at the old Empire Stadium to watch the Vancouver Whitecaps train. Then, after they left, he and his friends would jump onto the pitch and start playing themselves.
It was one of Mobilio’s first introductions to Vancouver’s professional soccer scene – a scene that would soon become synonymous with his name. Click below for full news story:

The 28th Annual CMFSC Labour Day Tournament completed another successful long weekend of soccer in the late summer sun, and saw an increased number of teams by 20 over the previous year.  
With 84 teams participating on 8 fields around Coquitlam, the event saw very competitive games with 3 of the 14 age groups needing penalty kicks to decide the 2014 Champions.  All other finals, except 1, were won with a goal difference of less than 2 goals by the winner, so clearly competitive matches were seen everywhere.  ...  click here for full story (.pdf)
