Team Formation Information

Hello Westside Youth Soccer Families - Welcome to Soccer 2019!!

Team creation is currently underway and we want to remind everyone of our process:

  1. This is not a school-based program; there will be players from many different schools on your child’s team - very helpful to know lots of different people when transitioning to middle school & high school!

  2. This is not a neighbourhood program; your child will be put on a team with players from Peachland to the bridge. U7+ will play teams from Lake Country, Rutland, Kelowna, Mission and West Kelowna.

  3. This is not a “coach-based” program; players will get different coaches year to year based on coaches leaving and varying number of teams in each age group. At the younger ages it is good to have a few different coaches as it broadens the player’s skill base - you never know if your child might want to play at a higher level one day and that requires a broad skill base.

  4. To the best of our ability we try to group a few players from each school on a team so you may see familiar faces.

  5. Anyone registering after Jan. 31st will be place where there is room.

  6. In dual age groups (U5/6, U14, U16 & U18) we spread each age group as evenly as possible between the teams. For example, if we have 16 2006 players & 16 2005 players for two teams each team will get 8 2006 players and 8 2005 players.

  7. At U11+ we take the coaches' player assessments from the previous year and balance the players across this year’s teams by strength. For example, if we have 6 players ranked as strong, 10 as average and 4 as weak each team would get 3 strong, 5 average and 2 weak players.
