Don't Wait Too Long To Register!!

As of January 23, registration for outdoor soccer has been brisk, running about 100 players ahead of last season at this point.   We are at about 80% of last year's final numbers already.   As we project number of teams, and spaces available, much depends on the number of coaches available.    In a number of age groups, we are nearing full capacity based on the number of available coaches, and waitlists will be going into effect in the next day or two.   If we are able to identify additional coaches, we will be able to add more spaces.    TWO REQUESTS  -- Please do not wait to register your child for soccer, as we fill spaces on a first come, first served basis.   Also, if you are willing and qualified to be a head coach, please note that on your child's registration form.  More info about coaching is available at

Whitecaps Partnership Huge Success!

Last season KYSA formed a partnership with the Vancouver Whitecaps to provide technical leadership to our U6 - U10 programs.  The program was two-fold -- to provide support and assistance to our volunteer coaches, and to provide instruction and mentoring to our players.   Whitecaps coaching personnel were present at all practice sessions for each age group.  They also provided a weekly practice outline for coaches to help ensure all players within an age group were given a basic scope and sequence of skills and strategies for that age level, which could then be supplemented with the volunteer coaches own expertise in working with his/her players.  In the fall they took a leadership role in choosing players for the 2015 Division A teams in U11 - U16, working with head coaches to identify players who would benefit from a higher level of competition. 

In a survey of parents and coaches after the season, the program received high praise, with 96% of parents indicating they felt Whitecaps coaches worked well with our volunteer coaches, and 93% feeling the program should be continued.    Coaches also responded positively, with 92% praising the communications with Whitecaps personnel, 92% feeling the weekly plans were helpful, and 100% recommending we continue the program.

A committee of our Board met with Dave Broadhurst of the Whitecaps in December, reviewing the season and the survey response.   A number of good suggestions from coaches and parents for improving the program were passed on to the Whitecaps.  Some discussion took place on how we might extend the partnership to include working with some of our older players during 2016.   The Whitecaps will be putting together some ideas and a plan to present to KYSA in January.

All in all, a very successful partnership we hope will be extended even more in the future!
