Mark would like to pass on a special thank you to the volunteer coaches that have been regularly attending practices for U10 boys and girls and U12 boys and girls during the winter period. It is a time usually with less players out however attendance has been good and WYSC thanks coaches for their commitment to players and the sessions during this time!

Rep team coaches (Sept-March) have also been working hard to get players through the hardest part of the season which is often impacted by weather! Thanks for your continuing efforts on behalf of your players, parents and the club! We really appreciate your commitment to these teams.

Update from PJ O’Heany, WYSC President

It’s with regret that I announce the resignation of Mitch Forster as Administrator. Mitch started volunteering for the club over 10 years ago, serving 3 years on the Board before taking on the part time paid administrator’s role almost 7 years ago. Her enthusiasm, willingness to do whatever was in the best interest of the club and its players and her strong organizational skills will definitely be missed! We wish her success as she moves towards a new career opportunity.

If anyone is interested in finding out more about the position and what it involves, please feel free to reach out to her directly to discuss in further detail on whistlersoccer@hotmail.com or on her cell 604 902 0400.
