Boundary youth soccer set to start

Boundary Youth Hockey is accepting registrations for the six week fall season now. Games start on September 8th.

It’s always a fun time when kids hit the soccer field. This picture was taken last spring at Boundary Central Secondary School.

Registration is open for the fall season with the Boundary Youth Soccer Association (BYSA).

“With the first games scheduled for Sunday, September 8, “ Time is of the Essence,” said Tracy Davies, technical director with the association. “Ideally, registration will be done by September 3 so that coaches and teams can get at least one practice in before the six-week season starts.”

Teams are kept small so kids are on the field and not watching. Many age divisions are supported: U16, U13, U11, U9 and U7 plus Kicks for Kids (ages 3 and 4).

Both players and coaches are wanted. Davies told the Times that as of Monday morning she was still trying to find a coach for the West Boundary U11 team. Based upon registration received to date Davies has already drawn up the list of teams.

Fall soccer will be six weeks long with a tournament at the end. Registration is $45 plus a $50 jersey deposit, that is given back at the end of the season.

“BYSA has an All Kids Play policy,” said Davies. Recognizing the tough economic times that some families have had to endure and in keeping with the intent that all kids wishing to play soccer shall have that opportunity to do so. Simply fill out the usual registration form on the website (boundaryyouthsoccer.com) and follow the directions as they apply to you. Then contact the BYSA administration by phone at 250-447-9227 or send them an email at boundarysoccer@shaw.ca in confidence for more information on the All Kids Play policy.”

Davies invites anyone who is or might be interested in being a player, coach, referee, etc. please to either go to the website (boundaryyouthsoccer.com) to register or, if they have questions, to call the office at 250-447-9227

According to the website the association’s aim is to keep registration costs as low as possible. This is accomplished through the efforts of volunteers and the very generous donations we receive through our sponsors.

Games are played on Sundays between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Come on out and get active with your community!!
