BC Soccer to Distribute Three Grassroots Festival Grants

Royal City Youth Soccer Club, Kamloops Youth Soccer Association and Powell River Youth Soccer Association receive U12 Festival Grants From BC Soccer

Vancouver BC, July 30 2014 – BC Soccer has approved three Grassroots Festival Grants to Royal City Youth Soccer Club, Kamloops Youth Soccer Association, and Powell River Youth Soccer Association.  The Grassroots Festivals are co-ed or gender specific festivals for U9-U12 players that consist of various stations that focus on skill acquisition and or basic attacking and defending activities.  BC Soccer will Co-Host the Festivals with each of the clubs or associations which allows for promotional, and onsite support.

“Grassroots Development Festivals help provide an opportunity for young players to learn new techniques and skills within a fun and educational environment” said Andrew Haines, BC Soccer Grassroots Coordinator.  “Commitment to improving U9-U12 programming is an important part to BC Soccer’s Strategic Plan and we are very happy to be able to offer these grants to Royal City Youth Soccer Club, Kamloops Youth Soccer Association and Powell River Youth Soccer Association.”

Districts and their affiliate clubs that are approved for a BC Soccer Grassroots Festival Grants receive various benefits including monies to assist with any festival expensive, technical support from BC Soccer staff and guidance from BC Soccer’s Grassroots Tutors.  BC also distributes a copy of an age appropriate Grassroots Coaches Handbook to each Coach and Game Supervisor which will help the club or association run similar programming in the future.

“We are really happy to be able to offer these Grassroots Development Festival Grants to our membership and to continue to work with our Associations and Clubs to deliver fun, age specific coaching within an appropriate learning environment,” said Don Dancey, BC Soccer Board of Director. “There are still two more grants that we will offer, one in fall and another over winter, and we are excited to continue to build on this initiative.”

BC Soccer also works with the co-host to help promote the festival through social media, press release and website stories.  Furthermore, BC Soccer works with the host to create a festival  equipment package with the grant money that the host then can keep to use for other festivals moving forward.  The equipment package can include nets, balls, Grassroots Coaches Handbooks, training ladders and hurdles and branded pinnies and bibs.

BC Soccer is committed to co-hosting festivals in all five major regions of British Columbia; Vancouver Island, Lower Mainland, Northern British Columbia, Thompson Okanagan, and Columbia Kootenays.  BC Soccer will allocate an additional two Grassroots festival grants from now until March 31, 2015.
