Vancouver Island Soccer for Youth and Kids
The Mid-Isle Soccer Club, based in Ladysmith on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, is a member of the Upper [Vancouver] Island Youth Soccer Association.
We are a not-for-profit, volunteer-operated club whose mission is to foster a lifelong love of soccer in our youth members and to promote the benefits that team sports and a healthy lifestyle provide.
Our club is open to any child from the age of 3 to 17 who wishes to play soccer. Our season begins in September and runs through March (with a holiday break in late December). We hope you can join us!
Registration opens in March and closes in August (it is currently closed). Membership fees are kept at affordable levels, but financial assistance is available if required.
We are pleased to announce that the Merriman Development Sessions started on Monday, September 16th, and continue every Monday.
UISA (Upper Island Soccer Association) in which Mid Isle Soccer is a member of has a “Best Fans Ever” Goal A reminder for all our soccer families of our “Best Fans Ever” Goal for all our teams this season, no matter what age or what level of soccer: No Coaching From the Sidelines!
There are no games over the Thanksgiving Weekend or Monday night Merriman Session on Thanksgiving Day! Happy Thanksgiving from Mid Isle Soccer Club!
Mid-Isle has started a Cleat Swap and have had some cleats donated for those families who would like to recycle instead of “buy new”.
Our fabulous Equipment Manager, Laurie, has organized with Macron, the company that has made our new house uniforms this season, to offer Mid-Isle sweatshirts, jackets, pants and backpacks.
To help keep and attract referees the executive have decided to pay for referee courses and refresher courses each season.
Many thanks to Mid-Isle Coach Shawn Freer, Glenn Britton at Ladysmith Public Works, and Clayton Postings and everyone at Ladysmith Parks, Recreation and Culture for the new referee shelter at Forrest Field! No more standing in the rain at halftime, refs!
Mid-Isle Coaches and Team Managers have just received Concussion Awareness Training that is now a requirement for all Clubs within the Upper Island Soccer Association (UISA).
