The Central Okanagan Youth Soccer Association (COYSA) is the District that covers the Central Okanagan between Peachland and Oyama for your players as defined by our governing body, the BC Soccer Association (BCSA).
In 2017 we had just over 4,700 players participating in our outdoor soccer programs and over 1,000 that participated in our indoor soccer program.
We have 6 Clubs within our District, each handling their own registrations. Players register in the Club that is in the area they live in with the exception players participating in our Kelowna United Football Club. Kelowna United is our rep Club and evaluations for their teams are held each year and are open to players in all our Clubs. Kelowna United is the technical arm of COYSA and provides coach workshops and courses as well as various player camps and academies. All Club websites and contact information are on the main page of our website as well as under the Contacts tab.
For the 5 House Clubs, teams play against teams from the 5 different areas of town: Westside, Rutland, Mission, Lake Country and Kelowna. Registration is traditionally held in December/January with teh season running from mid April when the fields open until the end of June, taking the summer off, returning after the Labor Day weekend to finish either the weekend before Thanksgiving (U7-10) or the weekend after Thanksgiving (U11-18).
Due to the limited indoor field time that we are allocated, our indoor program can only hold 1,000 players. The indoor season runs from near the end of October until just before Spring Break, taking time off during the Christmas holidays. Registration is traditionally held in mid August. Families print off the registration form and drop it off at the COYSA office.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: Unfortunately due to a FIFA ruling, International Students are not able to participate in any of our programs (including Indoor Soccer).
