The VISL / David Keith Scholarship Fund


David loved soccer. He initially played for Gorge and Oak Bay soccer clubs, and then refocused his devotion to the development of soccer in Canada. He shared his passion for the game initially through the Boys Club of Greater Victoria and he was instrumental in changing the landscape of Youth Club Soccer in Victoria. David recognized that essential to developing soccer in Canada was to increase coaching capacity in the community. As a representative of the BC Soccer Association he has trained, qualified, and mentored hundreds of coaches, and had an indirect impact on tens of thousands of youth players through this work. He was on the Executive of VIJSSAA and Lower Island and Vancouver Island Soccer League. He is an FA Certified coach and National staff coach, and accompanied the Canadian Men’s National Team to World Cup Qualifying in Honduras. He went on to coach Lower Island and Provincial select teams to National championships. He coached several local men’s clubs, including the Gorge and Prospect Lake, and he has coached two professional teams, the Victoria Riptides and the Victoria Shooters. However, he would always return to his passion for youth development, and most recently he served as technical director for several youth soccer clubs.

Would you like to be a supporter of the local soccer community like David was? If so, please visit the link below. A new scholarship is being introduced and initiated by the Keith family and the VISL for soccer players looking to continue on with post secondary education while playing the beautiful game.

2018/2019 Division Liaisons - UPDATED

We have had to do some adjusting, here you go.

As informed at the first Organizational meeting of the year, some changes regarding the reporting of game related information to your Division Liaisons. This year, home teams will only be required to submit Keeper shutouts and 1 MVP from each team.  It is preferred that you give the score of the game, and it is very important that you state which division you are referring to as sometimes admin are covering for others. The reporting of goal scorers and own goals will be done by the referees. 
For Division 1, the home team will also be required to call in a Rookie of the Game for both teams.......please make sure you mark your team lists accordingly.
Division 1 is required to submit the information 1 hour post match completion.
Divisions 2, 3, 4, Masters and U/21 are required to submit the information by Sunday 5:30 pm.

Entry Level Referee Course

An Entry Level Referee Course is being held Sept 7-9th at the Prospect Lake clubhouse and turf field. Register via the BCSA website. 

Entry Level Referee Clinics

The Entry Level Referee Clinic is the entry point into 11 a-side soccer. Once an individual is successful in passing this clinic they will be classified as a Youth Referee (if they are 14 or 15 years old) or a District Referee  (if they are 16 years old or older).

The goal of this three day clinic is to ensure that individuals who pass are capable to be either a Referee or an Assistant Referee in 11 a-side soccer. This is done with experienced referee instructors who use video educational material and practical on field sessions. The topics covered include, but are not limited to the Laws of the Game, Positioning, Signals, Administration of the game, and Pre-Match Preparation & Match Reporting. 

Pre-requisite: Minimum 14 Years old by or on the day of the clinic
Clinic Length: 17 hours
Clinic Time: Friday 6pm - 10pm - Saturday 9am - 5pm - Sunday 9am - 2pm
Clinic Fee: $131.25 plus a $4.46 user fee / system processing fee (includes GST)

Registration time

Afternoon folks, welcome to our new website and the start of a new era in the VISL.
This new process will be a little challenging to start as change is, but it will be so much more beneficial moving forward. I trust you will enjoy your SpAppz experience. 

*Note; your Club Registrar may be inputting all your players, please check with them before you send the Key Code to individual players to register. JDF, SF, Prospect Lake, and others have said they wanted to do so for you.
**Note; do not send or forward this email as it contains your own Team Staff login and password. What you do send to potential signing players is the Key Code that you will find within the body of the email. 
***Note; all team staff and players can access their team pages via the admin link at the top right of the website. 
****Note; As part of the individual player registration process, you will have to create your own user name and password. 
*****Note; Have a head shot ready for upload at the end of the registration process - you will need that to complete registration.   

Simple Registration Process: Go to visl.org

1. Go to registration navigation near top of page, then click player registration from the drop down.
 
2. When you get the login page, Click the 'New User' link and fill out user form (create a login and password), then fill out the rest of the registration form. Each player should have a unique login/password and the email address should be the player's email address and contact info.
 This process will be so much easier next year as your info will be in the system already.

3. For Registrar's, you will need to repeat for each player. While we do encourage players to register on their own and take away some of the burden from Club Officials, this avenue is still available to you.

4)All mandatory information must be accurate and all members are required to have their own email address.

Any questions? Please email Hans Krump at visl.webmaster@gmail.com and myself Vince Greco at vincentgreco@shaw.ca
