Teams Declared, Spaces Limited, Some Coaches Needed
This week each club declared the number of teams we would be putting in each age level. Now maximum numbers are set, schedules can be made, and uniforms and equipment ordered. We have recruited some coaches, so were able to take some players off waitlists. Players still on waitlists will be notified in the next week or so. Here is the current situation as of March 9:
Boys U8, U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18 full with waitlists.
Boys U6 -- would like to add another coach so we can reduce the size of our teams.
Boys U7 -- one more head coach needed to place all currently registered players.
Boys U9 -- added a team so some space available -- major reorganization of teams will be taking place.
BU11 -- limited space available
Girls U8, U10, U11, U14 full with waitlists.
Girls U6 -- two more coaches added....lots of space!
Girls U7, U12 -- very limited space available
Girls U9 -- added a team so space available -- major reorganization of teams will be taking place
Girls U14 and GU16 -- more coaches needed to place all currently registered players.
Girls U18 -- limited space available
If you are on a waitlist, or the division you wish to register in is full, please contact the other local clubs to see if space is available in their programs:
Okanagan Mission Youth Soccer -- email@example.com
Rutland Youth Soccer -- firstname.lastname@example.org
Westside Youth Soccer -- email@example.com

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.
