Welcome to the 2019 Season!
Welcome to WLYSA 2019!!
On behalf of the Executive, Coordinators and Coaches of WLYSA, I would like to welcome you to another exciting season of youth soccer!
To ensure our kids have another successful season, please be sure to...
- Ensure your child is not left unsupervised at the field at any time. Coaches are focussed on teaching the children soccer.
- Players must wear shin guards, socks that cover the guards, and cleats to all games and practices. Jerseys will be provided when games begin.
- Ensure players have adequate water in hot weather and sunscreen
- Help by assisting with set up and tear down of cones, nets etc.
- Read BC Soccer Fair Play Code for Parents and Expectations for Parents - Please see below
- Refrain from use of all tobacco products at the Esler Soccer Fields. The use of tobacco is strictly prohibited on all School District 27 grounds.
- Please leave dogs at home if at all possible. If you must bring a dog to the Esler Soccer Fields - the dog must be on a leash at all times. You are responsible for picking up after your dog.
Three different schedules will be posted to the WLYSA website before or during the season...
- Practice Schedule: Posted beginning of the season
- Game Schedule: Posted in the first 2 weeks of the season
- Jamboree Round-Up Schedule: Posted 1 week before the Jamboree Weekend
Important Dates to Remember
Team Photographs: In May (To be announced)
Mini Soccer Wind-up (Jamboree): June 14th and 15th
We hope that all players, volunteers and parents have an enjoyable season. When you see a volunteer giving their time for our kids, please take a moment to say "Thanks!", as there would not be an association without all of them!
Have a great season!

BC Soccer Fair Play Code for Parents
- I will not force my child to participate in sports.
- I will remember that my child plays sports for his or her enjoyment, not for mine.
- I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
- I will teach my child that doing one’s best is as important as winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game/event.
- I will make my child feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly and trying hard.
- I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or for losing a competition.
- I will remember that children learn best by example. I will applaud good plays/performances by both my child’s team and their opponents.
- I will never question the official’s judgement or honesty in public.
- I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from my children’s sporting events.
- I will respect and show appreciation for volunteer coaches who give their time to provide sports activities for my child
