Revelstoke Football began in 1895 with the Kootney Rovers. Since that time the sport of soccer has been embedded firmly in our community and has been one of the largest sports program to date for youth and children in Revelstoke. Just under 400 children and youth participate in our programs every year. We have over 150 volunteers who help to make the youth soccer program a great success.
The Revelstoke Youth Soccer House League accommodates all ages and abilities and its main purpose is to encourage participation, fun and skill development. Boys and girls ages 5 through 14 are under the soccer program direction of the Revelstoke Youth Soccer Association which became a society in 1981. Our season runs from the end of April (weather permitting) to the end of June.
In 2009, thanks to a generous contribution from the Columbia Basin Trust, RYSA was able to create a central location for our soccer program. The Centennial Park fields have become a “Soccer Center” every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for the children and youth who register for our program. We even run special programs on "Super Soccer Saturdays".
