About Us

History

We first stared playing soccer in year 2000, just for fun and a chance to get together with friends. As we grew in numbers and saw the need for more competitive and organized soccer, we decided to register an organized Soccer team with EDSA in 2007-08  


As more families migrated to Edmonton region from overseas and from other parts of Canada, we also felt the need to have an platform to guide parents toward many soccer programs available in Edmonton area and help youth players to further develop their skills.


We registered Punjab Warriors Sports and Heritage Association as a non-profit organization in 2016. We held our first Elite Youth Soccer Camp in summer of 2017.  This camp was a smashing success and showed the need in our community toward our program.
