The annual Revelstoke Youth Soccer Association wind-up took place on Saturday, June 20, with 39 local soccer teams of all ages taking to the fields for their final games of the season.

It was also time to hand out medals, eat pizza, and thank all of the coaches, sponsors, and volunteers who made this soccer season one of the best. The day was a perfect combination of cool air, warm sun and happy soccer players. Check out the photos in the gallery below.

In the Thompson-Okanagan Youth League (TOYSL), the U11 Development boys headed to Kelowna, where they finished off the season with their first double victory at a jamboree.

In the morning, they won a strategic and well-played match against Kamloops with a game-winning goal coming late in the game from Brodie Patry. In the afternoon, the boys beat Penticton in a high-scoring game that Revelstoke controlled from start to finish with sharp passes and solid defensive play. This decisive win reinforced the idea that this group of boys has come a long way as a team since they began practicing together back in the dark days of winter.

On that note, Development/Rep soccer registration will happen again this fall.  All players who are interested in participating in these programs next season will need to register at mass registration on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at the community centre. Anyone interested in coaching a development or rep soccer team can also fill out an application at this time.

RYSA would like to thank its sponsors, all the volunteers, and the Revelstoke community for another great season of soccer.
