For the 2017-18 Indoor Soccer season, we are pleased to announce that McDonald's will once again be sponsoring our U8-U10 players! Thank you Rutland McDonald's!
Basic Indoor Soccer Information is below or CLICK HERE
Our indoor soccer program is strictly recreational and stats are not kept from any of the games. Players do not have to play outdoor soccer in order to play indoor.
Teams are formed mixing players from all areas, skill levels and both years of birth in each age group. Player requests are not considered. The U8 teams are co-ed.
There are no practices, just one game per week and the league runs from (approximately) the last week of October until early March, with no games during the Christmas holidays. All games are on the indoor fields at the Capital News Centre at 4105 Gordon.
WE WILL ACCEPT REGISTRATIONS UNTIL THE AGE GROUPS ARE FULL. $130.00 per player
The season kicks off on October 27. Players born 2000 to 2011 are eligible.
Players must register in their proper age group.
($25 fee charged on all refunds. Requests must be in writing to email@example.com)
All sessions are on the indoor fields at the Capital News Centre (4105 Gordon Drive).
Coaches should be contacting players in the week before the first game.

Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis and again, there are NO REQUESTS. Our program is run with volunteer coaches - please sign up to coach your son or daughter. We cannot accommodate co-coaching requests but a coach may recruit from the team for an assistant.
U8 (2010-2011) ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This age group is co-ed. There are 3 games played at the same time, across the width of the field. There will be a helper/mentor present at all sessions to assist/help/answer questions. There are no referees. The coaches are allowed on the field. We recommend the coach has one other parent to assist so one is on the field and the other is with the subs on the sidelines. For liability reasons, we cannot allow any other adults or siblings to be on the actual fields. There are 3 time slot choices for U8s (you make a choice on the registration): Tuesday @ 4:00pm; Tuesday @ 5:00pm or Wednesday @ 4:00pm. Coaches from Kelowna United are in attendance every other week to help coaches and players. The structure is in the 'GAG' format of Game / Activity / Game.
PAYMENT: Online credit card during registration process or a cheque or money order (No cash) payable to COYSA, MUST BE RECEIVED at the COYSA office (#206-1415 Hunter Court) WITHIN 48 hours to complete registration. Please put player's name and birth date on cheque. Post-dated cheques will NOT be accepted. A $25 fee charged on any cheque returned by a bank.
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: For anyone that is applying for financial assistance through KidSport (or elsewhere), the fee must be paid in full, up front, and once we receive the funding, we will reimburse you. Kidsport's link is:
REFUNDS/CANCELLATIONS: Any request for a refund/cancellation must be received in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org before October 15, 2017.** There is a $25 cancellation fee charged on all refunds.
**Consideration may be given for a pro-rated medical refund if a Doctor's note is received indicating the player is unable to participate for the remainder of the indoor season. A pro-rated medical refund would take into consideration: the refund fee ($25), uniform fee($15) and a $10 per session fee for each scheduled session that passed by before the Doctor's note and written request was received. Requests received after November 30 would also be subject to an additional fee ($20.13-$31.80 depending on age). No refunds will be considered after 7 scheduled sessions have passed by.
SCHEDULES for the whole season will be posted here by the start of the indoor season. Coaches will be contacting players in the week leading up to the first session.
EQUIPMENT: The basic equipment of a player is mandated by FIFA and this is what is needed: a jersey (which we supply), shorts, shin guards, soccer socks and footwear (cleats). The cleats may be the same ones a player has worn for outdoor soccer or the indoor kind - it does not matter.
TEAM ROSTER SHEETS: All U10-U18 indoor teams must full complete a roster sheet and present it to the Referee before the start of each game. Roster sheets are provided with the equipment handout. They are also available by clicking here.
