KAMLOOPS, BC –– The Kamloops Youth Soccer Association (KYSA) spring season will wrap up this weekend with the Spring League Playoffs and the Errol Wild Active Start Mini-Soccer Festival.
The Chopped Leaf-sponsored Spring League Playoffs for boys and girls teams in the U13 to U18 age groups are being held Saturday and Sunday (June 22/23) at McArthur Island.
The Spring League Playoffs determine bragging rights for the year for the KYSA’s recreational-level players.
Running concurrently is the Errol Wild Active Start Mini-Soccer Festival for boys and girls in the U4 to U12 divisions, sponsored by Aberdeen Mall.
Games in the Festival will be played on fields throughout the city.
Errol Wild was one of Kamloops’ most dedicated volunteers. His commitment to all levels of soccer in the city was immense. He was an administrator, a team manager and a coach at all levels of the game. He was also a mentor to many up-and-coming young players, and served in just about every role there is in soccer – including a spell on the KYSA Board of Directors. He died in 2009 at the age of 49.
Not long after his passing the KYSA Board of Directors chose to attach his name to its annual mini-soccer festival.
In total, 2200 players on 125 teams will be taking part in both events.
A Fall Program is being offered to players in the U4 to U12 age groups and the early bird registration deadline is July 1st. For more information or to register, visit www.kysa.net.
