How long has your organization been active and operating?
The KYSA has been operating since 1964
Where do your athletes meet and train?
During the spring and summer our members play on city and school fields in their communities. Our BMO Select teams train and play most of their games at McArthur Island. We are fortunate to have amazing grass fields to play on thanks to the City of Kamloops Parks Department. In the fall and winter, our programs take place in the Warner Rentals Soccer Dome. KYSA owns and operates the only indoor soccer facility in Kamloops.
Describe your members in one word.
What has KYSA been working on lately?
We've been focused on Return to Play programs throughout the summer and fall. Our staff have done a fantastic job to keep our members engaged and active on the soccer field, while ensuring all safety protocols are adhered to.
Who are some volunteers that you would like to highlight in the community for their work and dedication?
We have more than 200 volunteer coaches and managers working with teams in the Select and Spring League programs. We truly appreciate the tremendous time and energy that all of our volunteers put into working with KYSA players.
What do you think makes Kamloops a great sporting community?
Kamloops is a great sporting community because it's just that - a community. Everyone (City staff, sponsors, volunteers, coaches, staff, parents, and players) is dedicated to creating a welcoming environment for sport to thrive. We are fortunate to live and play here and are so proud any time we have the chance to show Kamloops off to out-of-town teams.
