2024 Soccer Jamboree!!!!

The soccer jamboree is coming soon!!!! It's just over a week away and we are getting very excited. If you don't have it on your calendar, mark June 15th from 10am to 2pm. We have a friendly tournament for our U8-U12 players and fun activities & stations for the U4-U6s 

We encourage all players to wear their uniforms, as it's way easier to spot your team and/or child in a coloured jersey. It's a great event and so amazing to see so many people out for the day. 

The Fernie Fire department will be there with their truck, the RCMP with their speed gun so you can see how fast your kick is, a food concession with Pizza from Elk Valley Pizza Shoppe, Popcorn from Polar Peak Popcorn, Happy Cow Ice cream, along with other snacks, beverages and freezies. We will be accepting cash and card.

Field layout and schedule will be posted soon!

We can't wait to see all of you out on the pitch!!!

What better way to spend Family Day than kicking back, dialing 250-423-0007 or jumping on Elk Valley Pizza Shoppe website and clickity clicking up your favorite pizza to enjoy your apres ski/ride time with your Fam Jam?!?!?!? You can even look like a super-hero and pre-order it online for the perfect delivery time!

...Oh and did I mention you can support youth soccer at the same time by ordering up a couple LARGE pizzas?? For each large pizza sold on Family Day, EVPS gives the Fernie Youth Soccer Association $5. That's right... 5 bucks! Let's get our dialing fingers ready and hang up those oven mitts for the night and enjoy some pizza knowing the kids will be kicking soccer balls around soon!

"Bystander Intervention in Sports"

BC Soccer recognizes the collective responsibility we all share in addressing maltreatment within our community. Often, individuals hesitate to act when witnessing such incidents. Bystander intervention equips individuals with the necessary tools to intervene effectively without jeopardizing their own safety.

Intervening not only reduces trauma for the person being harmed but also contributes to dismantling the culture that tolerates maltreatment. While individually we may struggle to shift this culture, our collective actions hold significant influence.

Course Information

During the training, the objective is to provide participants with the tools to effectively intervene when witnessing harmful behavior within the sports community. Using the proven 5Ds methodology,encompassing five strategies for intervention, will equip individuals with the information needed to be an effective bystander. Through practice, you will leave the training feeling more prepared to intervene successfully and safely.

Fernie Youth Soccer Association
Fernie, BC
 
Dear Soccer Parents,
 
We need your help. On May 25th , the City of Fernie (COF) announced the potential sale of Max Turyk Community Centre (MTCC) and associated outdoor soccer fields to Conseil Scolaire Francophone de la Colombie-Britannique to provide a permanent home for École Sophie-Morigeau. The COF met with Fernie Youth Soccer Association (FYSA) representatives on May 30 and attended the community open house June 6 to gather information on proposed sale of the MTCC. After reviewing the information provided, the FYSA board is very concerned with the sale of MTCC.
We need you to contact the COF to challenge their consideration of the sale of the MTCC. Feedback from concerned citizens will influence the vote of council planned for the June 20 th , 2023. We have written to the COF expressing our concerns. We do not believe that adequate consideration has been given to the maintaining the size or the quality of soccer fields in the short or the long term.
The FYSA board provides the following talking points for your correspondence:
  • Soccer is very important to me and my children and we rely on soccer fields at Max Turyk;
  • Quality soccer fields are essential to teaching and playing soccer safely;
  • A single soccer facility reduces FYSA volunteer hours and COF maintenance costs and promotes a better experience with reduced travel;
  • I am concerned that the French School Board or other future owner will alter Max Turyk fields and reduce the amount of playable surface;
  • I am concerned that the French School Board or other future owner will not be equipped or staffed to maintain the soccer fields;
  • I am concerned that availability of Max Turyk fields will be limited because the activities of the French school or other future owner will have priority; and
  • I am concerned that the sale of Max Turk will eventually leave the City of Fernie with no publicly-owned soccer fields and a huge burden on future tax payers like me to buy land and build a replacement facility.
The FYSA board understands the desire of the parents and students of CSF to have a facility of their own however, we feel it is extremely important to ensure long-term access to sufficient fields currently depended on by over 450 players. It is our contention that the sale of the fields with the MTCC is short-sighted and ignores the value of the fields to the broader community.
 
We urge you to submit a letter to the City by Tuesday, June 14th to letstalk@fernie.ca or by dropping it off at City Hall to voice our deepest concerns and opposition to the proposed sale.
 
Sincerely,
 
FYSA Board of Directors
