 Alberta tier 3 & 4 would be roughly equivalent to our Bronze Division.

Most teams we host fall into the Silver and Bronze, though we will definitely have a few Gold level teams as well.

1.  SCHEDULES:  Division Schedules will be posted on the KEYSA website. Division schedules will also be emailed to teams.

6. GAME SHEET CAUTION LOG: a copy of the game sheet caution log will be included in your division schedule email. Each team must fill out a sheet for each game.   Teams may want to fill out a copy prior to the tournament to bring with them so they don't have to do it at the field.   Each team is responsible for giving it to the ref at the start of the game.   One sheet for EACH game.

7.  FIRST AID:  An “un-manned” First Aid station with a First Aid kit, bandaids, tensors and ice will be available for teams to use at the main tent.

-If this rule is breached, the over-age players will receive a yellow card, and if it happens more than once, they will be removed from the tournament.

10. U10-U12 NEW RULES FOR RETREAT LINE: The Retreat Line is a development tool that assists with the development of players, technically and as a team, tactically.

Here is a link to the full explanation of the Retreat Line :

11. PLAYERS REGISTERED TEAM:  No Player will be permitted to play for more than one team in the tournament.

Another Successful Weekend for KEYSA


This past weekend our rep and development teams travelled to Airdrie for a tournament. All of our teams played really well and put forth outstanding effort! A great time was had by all.

A number of our teams even brought back some impressive hardware! Our U10 Boys Team came home with a Gold medal; the U10 Girls Team won Silver; the U14 boys team won Silver and the U18 boys team also earned a Silver medal.

Way to go KEYSA Teams! Keep up the hard work!

Next up is our own KEYSA Tournament at Sam Steele next weekend. We have the U10-12 teams playing all weekend at Mt. Baker and the U13- U18 teams playing at Moir Park. Come check out some games and cheer on your hometown KEYSA Rovers!! 


Hard Work Pays Off for KEYSA Rovers U18 Boys!


The KEYSA Rovers U18 boys team has been putting in many hours and lots of extra practice. Coaches have been logging seemingly endless volunteer hours, exhausting all the resources available to them. These Rovers have been working at this all season, shaping and building their team and let me tell you, all that hard work has paid off!

The team has earned a silver medal in the Kamloops Slurpee Cup Tournament and won the Gold medal in the Terry Walgreen Memorial Tournament in Nelson. They have also beat the Nelson Selects U18 team to claim the top spot and represent the East Kootenays at the upcoming Provincial games.

The entire KEYSA organization would like to congratulate you all on a job well done. Now go get ‘em at Provincials!!
