U6-U10 Soccer School

Firstly, apologies to anyone that was missed by not having an email or phone call to say that the above program has been put back until Sunday September 22nd.  Due to technical issues with the website, we were unable to update things in time.

As stated, practices will commence at 9:00am – 10:00am Sundays and 6:00pm-7:00pm on Wednesdays.  All practices will be held at one of the indoor fields at the Legends Centre, Warman.

Please ensure that your child has a water bottle, indoor running shoes, shorts and t-shirt to bring/wear to practices.

The VSA is a zero tolerance club and will not uphold any verbal or abusive behaviour from any of its members of staff, parents or players.  All coaches, parents, and player’s must abide by our codes of conduct, which can be found on this website.

If you have any issues regarding practices, concerns etc., please direct this to either a team manager or coach, to enable them to sort things out.  A ’24hr cooling off period’ is a normal response given by the Rovers, as people usually see things differently in the ‘heat of the moment’.  If after 24hrs the problem remains the same then your coach/manager must respond to your request and try and come up with a solution.  If after that your problem has not been resolved then you can put your grievance to the VSA Board to sort out.  Grievance forms can also be found on this website.

Have a great season everyone!

Rovers U12-U18

Tryouts will be held for all U12-U16 Rovers on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August 2013.  U18′s will not be required to tryout, but must come on either of the above days to register and pay registration fees.  Times and venue to be announced August 1st, 2013.  Fees for 2013/14 are $475.00.

Fees must be paid in full prior to the commencement of the tryout, and jersey deposit cheques, post-dated for May 1st 2014, will be taken on the Saturday and Sunday of tryouts.  No deposit, no jersey!  Online registration only, can be made via the VSA website as of August 1, 2013, and the information provided, will act as the players registration form.  Manual registration will be taken on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August, and a registration form must be completed in full, and handed in with the registration fees.

Players must attend with full soccer kit, which includes shorts, jersey/t-shirt, shin guards, indoor running shoes and a water bottle.

There will be two practices and 1 game per week.  Practice days will be determined by the Coach of each team.

Schedules are determined by the Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc, so the VSA do not know any game days prior to the release of the SYSI schedule.

Under no circumstance will a release form be issued to any player  (including premier players), unless they have attended the Rovers tryout.  (This does not stop a player from attending any other tryout, prior to the Rovers, and this does not apply to Aberdeen, who are entitled to an winter release form.)

U6-U10 Soccer School of Excellence

This program is for children aged 5 to 9 in 2013.  The school of excellence is to teach children the basic skills of soccer and to improve on skills which some may already have. All training will be skill/listening based with a fun factor element to keep the children interested and wanting to play soccer.  Unlike the Rovers, which are competative teams, the Rovers School of Excellence is a non competative training program.  There will be two practices per week (TBD).  Games will be played in-house, and once/twice per month, we have arranged for the players to play frendly games with another academy club in the city.  Fees for this 2013/14 program are $275.00.

Full soccer kit is requred for each pratice and game as above.

For the U8′s and under, parental involvement is expected on occasions, which will be run by the NCCP  Coach.  Parents of U6 to U10 must remain at each and every practice the player attends.

All Practices for the Rovers and the Rovers School of Excellence will be at the Legends indoor facility, Warman.  Practice times and days TBA.  Season will commence September 1, 2013, and ends March 31st 2014.

Change of Field Venues for U14 Valley Cup

Due to the excessive rain that has fallen over the past couple of weeks, both Warman and Osler fields have a lot of standing water, making it impossiblie for any soccer games to be played on.  However, Langham and Dalmeny have had less rain, and there is no standing water on their fileds, and so far seem to be good to play on.  So to enable the VCT to go ahead, the committee has moved the tournament which will now be played in both Dalmeny and Langham.  Teams moving into playoffs will need to check with HQ to see what filed they will be playing on.

Thank you!

CISV Saskatoon – VCT Concession, Warman

We would like to thank CISV Saskatoon for their help this past weekend, and for this coming weekend. They have graciously volunteered their time to run the concession booth for us in the 2013 Big Valley Cup.

CISV runs local programing during the school year as well as international programs during the summer that give youth leadership experience, community involvement and international travel opportunities.

CISV Saskatoon will be running the concession to raise money for their local programing during our tournament on June 7, 8 and 9th and June 14, 15 and 16th in Warman. They will be selling a variety of drinks (pop, juice coffee and Powerade) as well as delicious burgers, hotdogs, chips, chocolates and candy. They have made great efforts to ensure their BBQ is registered with Saskatchewan Health and follows the proper food safety protocols as your safety is a priority. A great way to support this local group is by purchasing from their concession.”

2013 Harder Avalon Classic Team Shots - 1_cropped

Congratulations goes out to our U16 Rovers Girl Team after winning Gold Medal this weekend (May 31- Jun 2), at the Harder Avalon Classic Tournament. Five games were played over a three day period, which was exhasting, but very rewarding for them.

This team have been together for a couple of years, and their determination and strength, along with good coaching from Dwayne Germs and Tim Moulding has paid off, by competing and winning against some of Saskatoon’s top teams.

Way to go Girls, you are now No.1!
