2024 Spring Outdoor Season

Dec. 31, 2023

Spring Season Information

Welcome to April everyone! We are busy preparing for the upcoming Spring Season and getting the details finalized. This email will cover quite a bit of information, and will also be available on our website for reference.


Season Dates and Schedules

The season will Begin the week of April 29th.

Our practice schedule is available on our website and the page will be updated with the game schedules when we are able to finalize teams.

For our U6 - U13 age groups, we will be hosting a new mid-season double game day on May 25th as well as our year end Jamboree double game day on June 22nd.


Senior Practices: Senior practices will be Friday evenings 7:30pm. This practice is coach-led, non-mandatory, and open to any U14+ player (girls and boys) that are interested in gaining more skills, having more time on the fields, and hanging out with their friends.


Team and Coach Information

Team formation begins with finding coaches! With our current registration number (and predicted late registrations) we do know the number of teams and the number of coaches we will need to host all kids registered.

Below is the number of teams we have predicted and the number of coaches we still need. If you have a friend or family member that you want to co-coach or assistant coach with, please let us know! We can pair you and your kids onto the same team for the season. We also welcome U14+ players as assistant coaches for our mini teams!

U14+ Senior Age Groups: I will be contacting all our volunteers currently, but we could use a 2-3 more assistants in each of the age groups.

If you are interested in taking a coaching position, please reach out to Alexis admin@wlysa.com or Veronica td@wlysa.com

To be a coach we have a couple requirements:

  1. Criminal Record Check must be submitted
  2. Coaches must complete the Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders (online, self-paced course) - Keycode and instructions provided and paid for by WLYSA OR if you have already completed, we can use the certificate number for WLYSA as well.

Coaches are provided with support and have the option to complete the Canada Soccer Coaching courses for FREE through WLYSA.



WLYSA will be introducing TeamSnap this year to our Spring Season. For anyone unfamiliar, the app will allow you to view your game and practice schedule. It will also allow us to communicate with you quicker for any schedule changes.

The email address that is associated with your player’s profile on RAMP will be used to invite you to the app for WLYSA. If you need to change this address, please let Alexis know. (admin@wlysa.com).

TeamSnap will be activated for the season once all teams and the game schedule is finalized. (Last week of April).



U3 - U5 are sponsored by Tim Hortons again this year which provides them with Shorts, Socks, and a Jersey. Players will be required to bring shin guards and cleats (or runners that allow them to stick to wet grass).

U6 - U8 will be a combination of Tim Hortons and Local Sponsors this year. We have accumulated enough Tim Hortons Socks and Shorts to offer them to all U6 - U8 players that would like to have a pair. If you are familiar with the Tim Hortons sizing - you may understand why we don’t normally offer for U7-U8 and might choose to purchase your own for your child’s comfort. The socks are one-size fits all, and the shorts go up to a Kids Medium. More information on pick up dates will come out with team announcements. Players will also be required to have shin guards and cleats.

U9 - U13 are provided with Jerseys and are required to bring shorts, socks, cleats and shin guards.

U14+ will be provided with T-shirts to keep and will utilize pinnies for the games. Players are required to bring shorts, socks, cleats, and shin guards.



Referee courses are beginning soon! Officiating the Spring Season games is open to anyone (youth and adults) 12+ years old that hold the required certification completed through BC Soccer.

WLYSA will be hosting the on-field this year for the Small Sided and Entry Level Courses (April 27th) at Esler. Refresher clinics are entirely online now.

Full details on how to register for the required courses and the course dates are available on our website: http://www.wlysa.com/content/wlysa-referee-program

**New this year, all referees must complete the questionnaire on our website to be considered for the upcoming season. This lets us know who has or will be completing what courses and who wants to officiate for us.

Registration and Refunds

For any friends or family interested - our registration will remain open until April 27th this year. However, once teams are set in the next couple of weeks, we will only have the remaining spaces available on each team for anyone in U6 - U13. Have your friends register soon if they want to be counted on the teams!

If your child no longer wishes to participate - we have updated our refund policy to allow full refund up until the start of our season (April 29th). The earlier you let us know, the less admin work we have in the long run.
