KYSA 50TH_finalKYSA TO HOST 50TH ANNIVERSARY BBQ!

The KYSA is hosting a 50th Anniversary Barbecue on Saturday, September 27 in the Special Events Arbour on the Pow Wow grounds. The BBQ kicks-off at 6:00pm.

Tickets are now on sale for $10 each through the KYSA office. KYSA-member teams who wish to attend as a group can purchase 20 tickets for $100.

Included in the ticket price is a hot dog or hamburger, a bag of chips and a soft drink PLUS each ticket holder will receive a 50th Anniversary T-Shirt. There’ll be entertainment, a few speeches, opportunities to participate in some fun activities and lots of prizes.

The objective of the BBQ is to mark the 50th year the KYSA has been in existence and to bring together and thank the many volunteers and staff who have contributed to the success of the organization over the last half-century.

The KYSA was started, innocently enough, in 1964, when a group of school teachers and interested volunteers began a youth soccer league with four teams. The organization now registers approximately 3700 players annually and has a staff of six to help run the various leagues and coach and player development programs.

Former TRU Athletic Director Pat O’Brien was one of the individuals who helped form the inaugural league when he was employed as a high school teacher. He is expected to attend the celebratory BBQ on Saturday!

The KYSA office is open from 9:00am to 2:00pm, Tuesday through Friday. Interested participants can all the KYSA office at 250-376-2750 for more information.
