Boundary Youth Soccer Association (BYSA) is gearing up for another season and the early registration deadline that will save you big bucks is next week. On Feb. 23 the registration fee goes from $85 to $150 (plus jersey deposit).
According to emails sent out by administrator Jeff Olsen, they are running the same divisions this year as last: K4K, U7, U9, U11, U13 and U16—all mixed and all fun. The first games are scheduled for April 12 in Midway, with practices the week before. The June tournament will be June 27 in Grand Forks.
Games will remain on Sundays, generally in the mornings, with effort to keep events at two locations, although there will be the times when there are three venues and other times only one.
The league is looking for coaches, mostly in the K4K, U7 and U16 divisions. Olsen says they need approximately 14 at this time. Both coach and ref clinics are scheduled. All are about three to four hours long. Coaching clinics are:
March 13, Evening: Defending for U13 and U16
March 14, Morning: Active Start for K4K and U7
March 14, Afternoon: Grassroots for U9-U11 (Super Keen U7 are welcome)
Ref clinics will be held on March 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a certification refresher from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.
BYSA is planning on holding fall soccer this year. “Short and sweet with a little tournament to wrap it all up,” Olsen said. Registration fees will incorporate fall soccer, but new players who did not play in the spring will need to pay $30 for fall to cover the insurance.
