Team and individual photos for U7 - U10 teams will be done at Parkinson Rec Centre on Wednesday, April 30 and Thursday, May 1. Go to the main parking lot as far west as you can. Walk west across the creek to the area where the pictures will be taken. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your team's scheduled time. All players receive a free Memory Mate (team and individual picture). If you wish some of the additional products (trading cards, posters, etc.) please fill out the envelope your coach gave you, enclose payment, and bring it to the photo session. Here is the 2014 Photo Schedule
For U6 families the photos will be taken at your practice session on Wednesday, April 23, at Dr. Knox Middle School.
Thanks to BC Photography

First Practices Completed, Games Begin April 26
We have completed our first week of practices for all age groups. All players who have been assigned to a team should have been contacted and invited to practice. As we sort out teams, if spaces become available we will assign waitlist players to fill those spots. We have received some requests for changes, and those will be considered if space permits. Because most of our teams are full, we are unable to move a player unless there is a corresponding move opening a spot on another team. Waiting list players and those unable to fit assigned teams into their schedule will be refunded their fees as soon as we verify that teams are in full attendance.
If you are on a waitlist,, please contact the other local clubs to see if space is available in their programs:

Coach Certification Clinics Now Available for 2014
BC Soccer, in cooperation with COYSA and KYSA, have scheduled a series of coach certification courses that will qualify coaches to understand and teach the skills and strategies of the Canadian Soccer Association's Long Term Player Development program. We expect that over the next couple of years all our coaches and assistants will take these clinics in order to further their development as youth soccer coaches. All are free (or reimbursed fully upon completion). The clinics are set up to take place before the opening of the 2014 season so coaches can fully take advantage of the information, and so that they are not trying to juggle games, practices and clinics during the season.
For information about the courses, and how to register, please go to the Coaches tab at the top of this page, and scroll down to Soccer Specific Coaching Courses. Early registration will let us know if more sessions need to be set up to deal with demand.
