News and Announcements

Pre-registration is required, and it’s all done on-line! Go ahead and register now as spaces are limited.

Entry Level Course
The Entry Level Referee Clinic is the entry point into the Provincial Referee Program. Once an individual is successful in passing this clinic they will be classified as a Youth Referee (if they are 14 or 15 years old) or a District Referee (if they are 16 years old or older). The goal of this 2 1/2 day clinic is, through experienced referee instructors and video, to provide the knowledge of refereeing in all aspects of the game.

The topics covered include, but are not limited to, the Laws of the Game, Positioning, Signals, Administration of the game, and Preparation & Match Reporting. There is a fitness component and a written exam based on material.

Pre-requisite: Minimum 14 years old (no other qualifications required)
Clinic Length: 17 hours

Sunday May 5, 2013 9 AM to 2 PM
Location: Myrtle Philip Community School (Lounge and Millar Room)
Clinic Fee: $125.00 (plus a $4.25 user fee / system processing fee)
Full payment needs to be made at time of registration however successful candidates refereeing in Whistler’s youth system will be reimbursed one-half the cost once the course has been completed.

WYSC is very fortunate to receive grant funding for participating in the Annual Pitch In Day.

WYSC designated areas are:

To ensure we cover both areas:

If you are able to collect supplies from the Works Yard at Nesters between 8 – 9am and drop off at Creekside and Function, please contact whistlersoccer@hotmail.com.

Pitch In Day runs from 9-11:30am, so you can show up at anytime! and is followed by a BBQ at the Village Fire Hall from 12 noon that you are welcome to attend.

Dear Members,

Your WYSC Board and I are pleased to invite you to attend the Annual General Meeting of the Whistler Youth Soccer Club, to be held at the Nita Lake Lodge, 2131 Lake Placid Road (Creekside) on Thursday 11th April, 2013 at 7:30pm.

If you are unable to attend, I encourage you to participate by completing and returning the enclosed proxy form for the AGM. Proxies can be signed, scanned and emailed back to whistlersoccer@hotmail.com.

Attached is a Notice of Annual General Meeting, which sets out the items of business. Explanatory notes, which form part of the accompanying Notice of AGM, have been prepared to assist you in understanding the items of business.

At the AGM we are seeking your support in order to adopt the new Constitution & Bylaws to repeal and replace the existing constitutional framework.

Existing Constitution & Bylaws can be viewed here:

New Constitution & Bylaws can be viewed here:

In order to make the best use of time, there will be a Visioning Meeting following the AGM. This allows all members to provide feedback and is a great opportunity to bring forward ideas, comments and suggestions.

The Board Members of WYSC want to ensure that they are representing all club members and this will be a relaxed gathering after the formalities of the AGM have taken place.

Refreshments will be served, so bring another member and come and support your club.

Thanks and regards,
Mitch Forster
WYSC Administrator
