Founded in 1966, Killarney Youth Soccer Association is a 100% volunteer-run organization providing soccer to boys and girls from age 5 to 17.
Our goal is to make organized soccer accessible to everyone in our community and take pride in having the lowest registration fees across all Vancouver and area clubs. All teams are coached and managed by volunteers such as parents and other community adults.
While our fees may be low, we still provide all the things you expect from your soccer club including a strong focus on Long Term Player Development; professional development coaching; goalie clinics; club-funded access to tournaments; innovative coaching tools; and fun events, all at NO ADDITIONAL COST!
Assessments for U11 and older are generally held in March and April - while assessments are not mandatory please visit our Assessment Page for more details. A player that cannot attend assessments will be reviewed by a development coach or age group coach to ensure they are on the correct team.
U6 and U7 teams play in-house meaning that teams play other Killarney teams. U8 and up play against other local clubs. U6-U9 practice in gyms during the winter, typically after Remembrance Day when the weather gets damp.
U6 - U7 teams are co-ed. From U8 boys teams and girls teams are separate.
Teams U12 and younger will have a "mini wrap-up" at the end of the season in which all players will receive a keepsake medallion as well as activities and pizza.
Mini (U6 - U10) Teams practice once a week and play once a week on Saturdays, finishing before 1 pm. The Fall practice schedule for these age groups as follows:
Teams at these age groups play games every weekend through the season in the BC Coastal Soccer League - Girls teams generally play on Sunday while Boys teams play on Saturday.
Teams U11 and older practice twice a week. Practice schedules are set just prior to the season and are selected by the volunteer team officials to best fit their schedules.
Practice for older teams will also be on turf when available. Practice for U12 and younger will be on Killarney Oval or Killarney Gravel.
Divisional players, U11 and up, should register by July 15th to help ensure placement on an active team.
Older players, U13+, will often play on turf while younger players will play on grass and, if grass fields are closed, on gravel fields.
Players will be supplied with shorts, socks, and a jersey. Jerseys must be returned at the end of the season and can keep the shorts and socks. Players must provide their own soccer cleats and shin guards.
Each team has team officials including a coach and manager, and possibly assistant or co-coaches. All team officials are volunteers, have passed Criminal Records Checks and are usually parents or guardians of players on the team. The coach will run practices and games. The team manager will manage the RAMP team website, distribute schedules and assign duties such as snack and field lining to parents.
