To the OYSS membership,
Registration is now OPEN! With a “pay by check” option (mailing address is on the registration page) OR pay online.
PLEASE register ASAP so we can start to make plans according to numbers of registrants soon. Registration is open now through July 31st. A late fee will be applied for registrations received after July 31st. Registration will close Sept 16th.
Please note the following changes for fall 2017:
1) Registration fees include some indoor game time at Arbutus Meadows for all age levels.
2) Academy is now offered as an optional add-on, with an additional cost as we plan to hold seven of our ten Wednesday night sessions at the indoor facility at Arbutus Meadows. So please choose between “team only”, or “registration WITH Academy” for your age category
3) Tier 3 players must register for a Tier 4 team with Academy and then add Tier 3.
The fall 2017 soccer season will look a lot like the fall 2016 season. Pony age soccer (U6-U10) will occur at Parksville Community Park and then move indoors to Arbutus Meadows. U6-U8 teams will be girls/boys combined. The U9/U10 boys will make up teams and play at PCP and then move indoors to Arbutus Meadows. The U9/U10 girls will play inter club with Nanaimo and Ladysmith teams, alternating home and away games.
All games are on Saturdays.
Sept 9th - Sept 30 at Parksville Community park
9am: u9/10 boys, u6
1030am: u7/8 boys, u7/8 girls
Oct 7th- Nov 18th at Arbutus Meadows
9am: u9/10 boys
10am: u6, u7/8 boys
11am: u7/8 girls
U11-U13s will play as girls only or boys only teams, with the number of teams dependent on registration numbers. U11s will play in an interclub league of their own, U12/U13s will form teams of combined ages and will play inter club with Nanaimo, Ladysmith and Gabriola teams. All teams play Super 8 (8 aside). Field locations remain to be determined but may include Springwood, Arrowview or Qualicum Rec. Some home games in fall and winter will be indoors at Arbutus Meadows.
U14+ will form boys or girls teams based on numbers. Some teams may be combined ages, as in U14/U15, or U14-U16, as numbers warrant. Teams will play Super 8, rather than 11-aside. Fields remain to be determined but may include Springwood, Kwalicum Secondary, or Qualicum Rec.
Tier 3 teams will be formed as numbers and interest warrant. Contact Suzanne at firstname.lastname@example.org for info on Tier 3 for U12 and up.
