Sponsorship Opportunities for 2015

We have two major sponsors for our program, for whom we are grateful for their support.   All our U6 - U12 teams are sponsored by Wendy's, and our U18 teams are supported by Interior Savings Credit Union.   We do have teams at the U14 and U16 level which are not currently sponsored, and would appreciate local businesses becoming sponsors of one or more of those teams.   For further information on the benefits and costs, please click here .

Head Coach Certification

In an effort to provide the highest possible coaching to players in our province, BC Soccer has mandated that by the 2016 season, all head coaches must be certified at the level they are working by completing the coaching course designated for that level.  KYSA supports that mandate, and will be encouraging all our head coaches to get certified even before that 2016 deadline.   Listed below are the courses currently open for registration for head coaches and assistant coaches.  All registration costs for the courses will be covered.  As an additional incentive, our Board has agreed to provide a $100 rebate to their child's registration fees for all head coaches who are correctly certified at the level they will be working.

Coaching courses in our area have now been planned as outlined below and are on the BC Soccer site ready for registration at this link (host name is Kelowna United):  http://www.bcsoccer.net/courses_workshops


COYSA will reimburse the fee to our coaches upon completion of the course.

Team Assignment Procedures

In recent years it has become increasingly difficult to put together teams in Spring that are competitively balanced.  Some teams have managed to stay pretty much intact from season to season, while others are continually changing players and coaches.  Some teams seldom lose any games year after year, while others suffer through a series of seasons with victories few and far between.  Some teams have very few or even no new players in the spring, as all their previous team returns.  Others have over half their team made up of beginning players, who  haven’t had the opportunities to develop their skills and game strategies like the more stable teams have.

Our board has decided to implement a different system, more in line with indoor soccer, hockey, baseball, and other local minor sports, using the following guiding principles for team selection:

--part of what house league soccer is about is providing opportunities for players to make new friends and experience a variety of coaching styles over their years in soccer;

--coaches will be asked for input re the relative strengths of their team and players  at the end of each season, in preparation for team selection next season;

--within any age group, the main goal of player assignment will be to provide as much competitive balance as possible;

--school attendance will be spread among all teams, rather than teams being made up mostly by players from a particular school;

--players new to KYSA will be divided equally among all teams;

--players may be shifted to another team within the first couple of weeks where an obvious imbalance still exists.

Any changes to teams will be made by the Board, in consultation with coaches, but not at the request  of parents wishing a different team for their child.  We would appreciate parents’ support as we seek to achieve equity for all teams, but will respectfully offer a full fee refund if parents are dissatisfied with their child’s placement.
