2021 WYSA Sponsorship Drive
The Westside Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) is currently preparing for the 2021 season. We are dreaming big this year and our goal for the 2021 season is for every player to be able to play without cost. To meet this ambitious financial goal, we need to raise $115,000. Why are we wanting to do this? Well, Covid-19 has impacted all of us financially, mentally, emotionally and physically and we do not want any child to be unable to play because of finances. Soccer is an accessible sport for all levels and abilities and being outdoors makes it a safer environment for team participation.
Every year WYSA purchases balls, uniforms, nets and other equipment to enable practice and game play. Included in the cost to play is field rentals, insurance, referees, coach training and fees to be part of the larger Central Okanagan Youth Soccer Association. This allows us to play throughout West Kelowna, Westbank, Kelowna and Lake Country.
Prior to the cancellation of the 2020 outdoor season, we had jerseys prepared with contributing sponsor names. We will be using these jerseys this coming season in the interest of honoring sponsorships, minimizing waste and protecting our environment. This year we are offering the option of a banner with your organization or business on it. These banners will be hung by WYSA volunteers every Saturday at our main soccer fields at CNB in West Kelowna where they will be viewed by over 300 families each weekend. At the end of the season the banner is yours to keep.
The suggested banners are the responsibility of your business to purchase. The banners we are offering are 18 x 52 inches, hemmed and grommeted at a cost of $76 plus tax. These banners will be made by our current sponsor Manchester Signs, Printing and Graphics in West Kelowna.
We are committed to ensuring your business is recognized through social media shout outs and your company logo will be added to our website. We welcome other ideas for your recognition. When the sponsorship is fulfilled, we will provide your business with a sign to display at your business advertising your sponsorship of WYSA.
In order to meet our 2021 registration deadline, we need to have your sponsor funds to us no later than February 15th. After this we will adjust the fees charged to our soccer families based on the generous donations, we have received from you.
Please contact us to discuss what sponsorship amount you can give to keep our West Kelowna, Westbank & Peachland children playing soccer in 2021.
