The Yellowknife Bay Soccer Club (nicknamed the "Sundogs") is a youth soccer club. Although not exclusive, the YBSC is focused on developing soccer and providing playing opportunities for kids in the Old Town and Niven Lake areas of Yellowknife.
YBSC operates on a yearly cycle starting each October. For the Winter 2013/14 session (October 2013 to April 2014), YBSC will be running 8 groups:
The U-12, U-10, U-8 and U-6 designations are based on birth years for 2014 age divisions.
Over the long-term, the YBSC intends to grow by adding higher age groups (U-14, U-16 and U-18) to eventually become a full youth club for all age categories from U-6 to U-18.
The primary objective of YBSC is to develop skilled outdoor soccer players and teams that can successfully compete in southern Canada. As such each summer, YBSC runs a summer session with the same groups as the previous winter.
YBSC will be travelling to a tournament in the summer for each U-8 and older team. As travel to tournaments requires a commitment from a team of players, YBSC expects those players and parents who join the program to have an interest and willingness to travel to summer tournaments.
For the summer of 2014, it is expected that the tournament for the U8 and U10 teams will be in Edmonton the weekend of June 20th to 22nd. The date and location for the U12 tournament is not yet known.
For anyone interested in a winter-only soccer experience with no expectation of playing or travelling to tournaments in the summer, then the Aurora Minor Soccer League would be a better option.
We do not have a defined registration period and just take in players as spaces open up. For the Winter 2013/14 session, we now have limited spaces available.
