KAMLOOPS, BC –– The Kamloops Youth Soccer Association has announced that Forward Law LLP is expanding its sponsorship of the organization.
The law firm has been a partner with KYSA for the past three years. Initially, the firm sponsored the association’s Fall Season WInd-Up Jamboree. Last year the company became a “jersey sleeve” sponsor.
In 2017 Forward Law is expanding its sponsorship of the KYSA’s “small-sided” program, which involves players in the U5 to U10 age groups. Starting next year, the firm’s logo will appear on the front of every jersey worn by players in those younger divisions.
McDonald’s Restaurants of Kamloops is the long-time sponsor of the U11 to U18 divisions and continues in that role for the 2017 season.
Forward Law is taking on a sponsorship category that was previously supported by Wendy’s Restaurants, who have chosen to cut back on their involvement with the KYSA starting in 2017.
Forward Law is a Kamloops Law Firm which offers a broad array of legal services and specializes in personal injury, business and estate law.
Forward Law partner David Hughes says his firm is excited to increase its commitment to youth soccer in Kamloops. “We believe that soccer is a fantastic sport and we are excited to be able to continue to support the growth and development of young players in Kamloops.”
KYSA President Graham Cope says, “I would like to thank Forward Law for stepping up to sponsor our mini-soccer program. Support from our community partners is crucial in keeping player registration fees as low as possible.”
The KYSA’s stable of business partners includes Hansport (Coach & Player Development), Bank of Montreal (Select Program), 7-Eleven Canada (Slurpee Cup), Fresh Is Best (Active Start Mini-Soccer Festival) and Chopped Leaf (Fall Season Wind-Up Jamboree).
The youth association also enjoys the sponsorship of Kamloops This Week, Radio NL/The River/Country 103, Sure Print Kamloops Print & Copy Centre, Menchie’s Fresh Yogurts and Umbro Canada (Official Equipment Supplier (annual summer soccer School program).
