Soccer United

2018 Division A Information

In Divisional Soccer (U11, U12, U14, and U16),  teams are organized in tiers to provide a more balanced competitive/skill development environment.    Division A is a more competitive level of soccer, designed to provide an opportunity for more skilled players to play a more competitive schedule within the house league framework. Division B is for more recreational players, and those looking to develop the skills needed for the Division A program.  Both tiers are  still  house league programs, with games on Saturday and one practice a week, with the possibility of a second if desired.  All team members can expect to play at least half of each game.   Tryouts will be held for the Division A teams in the fall, as outlined below.  All other players who register in the spring will be assigned to a team, and those teams will be assigned to tiers once final numbers are known.

Coach Selection Guidelines

Coaches interested in head coaching positions for U11, U12, U14, and U16  Division A  teams may apply for consideration on the 2018 Div A Coach Application form.   All current coaches will be notified by email, and info will be posted on our website.  We also encourage coaches who don’t have children playing at that level to consider applying.  From the applications submitted, a committee will shortlist and interview where necessary, and may spend time observing potential coaches in game/practice situations.  From that process, head coaches will be appointed for each team.  Assistant coaches will be appointed after the team selection in the fall by the head coach, on approval of the KYSA Board.

Timeline for Selection (all dates may be adjusted for specific age groups or circumstances)

             Sept. 1                  –       Coach application forms considered to be submitted

Sept. 1 - Sept. 12    --       Shortlisting,  interviewing, and observation where required.

             Sept. 15                 –       Deadline for appointment of head coaches where possible.

The following criteria will be considered in selection of head coaches:

--coaching experience and certification—our Div  A coaches must have completed the appropriate BC Soccer level before the season begins

          --playing experience

          --coaching philosophy

          --communications with players, parents and referees

          --capability of their child playing at the Division A level

This information may be gathered from the application form, from personal interviews, and/or from observations of the coaches in game/practice situations.

Player Selection Guidelines

For the 2018 season,  one or more teams per age group will be selected, depending on overall numbers in the age group.     Roster maximums  for these teams will be as follows:     U11 and U12 --  14 players U14 – 16 --  18  players.  Some spots may be left for final roster assignments following spring registration.     

All current coaches in U10, U11, U12, U14 and U16 will be notified of the tryouts and asked to pass the information along to their players.  All players in those divisions will be notified by email of the tryout criteria and schedule.  Info will also be posted on the KYSA website.  Tryouts will begin in September.   Tryouts are open to all current KYSA players, plus any other players living within KYSA boundaries.  Players will be asked to register ahead of time to help us determine numbers and plan sessions.   A non-refundable tryout fee of $10 will be charged.  All players may participate in the first two tryouts, but depending on numbers, any subsequent tryouts may be by invitation only.  Players must attend at least one of the tryouts to be considered for these teams.  Tryouts will be run by an independent panel of coaches, including the team’s head coach.  At the conclusion of these tryouts,  the 2017 rosters of these teams will be selected, except up to two spots may be reserved for final decisions in the spring.    Candidates for those Spring spots will  be invited to tryouts as required.

The following criteria will be used in choosing players for this team:

--soccer skills

--physical fitness

--understanding of the game


--attitude/work ethic

--positional preferences (eg goalkeepers)

--commitment to the program (ie limited interference from other activities)
