Annual General Meeting November 16
All KYSA members are invited to participate in our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, November 16, from 7 - 9 pm, at the First Baptist Church (Bernard Avenue at Richmond Street). Agenda items include:
--Election of the 2017 Board of Directors
--Review of programs and policies
Each family designated one voting member at registration, and that person will receive a voting card. Other family members are also welcome to attend and participate in discussions, but voting will be by card.
We are looking for new members of our Board. All positions are open, with many current Board members returning for another year. We are particularly looking for the following positions:
Uniforms Manager -- orders, distributes and manages our team uniforms each season. Ideally, the manager will have several committee members to work with in completing this big job.
Discipline Chair -- in addition to monthly KYSA meetings, this person attends meetings of the COYSA Discipline Committee to help deal with complaints about coaches, parents and players, and determine appropriate outcomes.
Directors at Large -- contribute to discussions re policies and procedures, and often take on specific areas of responsibility such as Team Pictures, Sponsorship, etc.
Vice-Chair -- Works to support the Chair and Board in all KYSA programs and policies.
For further information, or to volunteer for any of these or other positions on the board, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

2017 Practice Schedule Announced
The KYSA Board has set the following practice schedule for teams for the 2017 spring soccer schedule:
U6 Wednesdays at Dr. Knox
U7 Tuesdays at Lillooet
U8 Thursdays at Lillooet
U9 Monday/Wednesdays at Dilworth
U10 Tuesday/Thursdays at Dilworth
U11 Tuesdays at Martin Centre
U12 Mondays at Martin Centre
U14 Wednesdays at Martin Centre
U16 Mondays/Wednesdays at Lillooet
U18 No practices -- games only
There may be circumstances where individual teams may need to deviate from this schedule. Sometimes more teams are registered than can be accommodated on those days. Sometimes coaches have conflicts in their personal schedule with those nights. We will try very hard to stick with those days, but some modification may be necessary.
