The 2020 COBSS bursary recipients are: Abigail Cairney, Cass Kocevar, Logan Mazza, Dylan Robles, Avneet Lalli (for the Bruce Corrie Honorarium Bursary), and Iain Reid (for the Shirley Guenette Honorarium Bursary). Congratulations and best wishes for your future educational aspirations.  


Phase 1 of BC Soccer’s Return to Play Policy in early June allows for modified training / practice and skills but no games at all. Decisions by various governments, health authorities and those providing venues (ie City of Kelowna, School District No. 23) all have bearing on what can or cannot be done. As restrictions are lifted or changed, we will be further guided on how to proceed.

We are required by BC Soccer, Canada Soccer and viaSport (the organization tasked with providing guidelines for all sports in BC) to post these two documents for your review:

COYSA Safety Plan

COYSA Illness Policy


It is with great difficulty that we announce that the 2020 soccer season has been cancelled the season as it stands, due to COVID-19. Over the course of the next few days, full refunds will be issued to those members that had paid. If you paid via credit card, your credit card will automatically be credited. Please allow a couple of days for the credit to appear on the credit card statement. Your child(ren) will be withdrawn from the registration system for the 2020 soccer season.

 

We are cancelling the season with the intention of playing some sort of soccer once the restrictions have been lifted and reregistering players (details to be worked out as, and when, we know more).

 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please just email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

 

Please stay safe and practice social distancing so that we can all get back to a more normal lifestyle quickly.



Due to the unprecedented and uncertain times we are currently in, we have cancelled the Mini World Cup and Kelowna Canada Day Soccer Tournaments for the 2020 season. We look forward to seeing you all again for the 2021 tournaments.


We are in unprecedented and worrying times. We have, at this point, no certainties if, or when, our soccer season will start. The only thing we know for sure is that there will be no soccer activity in April. Day by day opinions and policies vary about the current pandemic, be they from different levels of government, health professionals or the World Health Organisations. It feels like one day we are being told that we are flattening the curve in BC, with the possible hope of starting to return to normal in May, to this will go on for months and months, with a rerun in the autumn. It is clear that the day by day situation changes rapidly, and there is no clear exit plan for dealing with the pandemic. 


We will be providing updates via email as more information becomes clear to us as a directive from COYSA and BC Soccer.
