Fernie Youth Soccer Association is excited to be entering into our spring outdoor soccer season starting May 7.

We are working towards increasing technical skill development within our club. On April 15 and16 several coaches attended a coaching clinic put on by BC Soccer in Cranbrook. This past weekend former pro-player, Dave Spendlove came to Fernie to put on three coaching clinics for our club. Dave is passionate about soccer and teaching. He owns a full-time soccer company based out of Nelson, which includes an indoor soccer facility.

Fernie Youth Soccer is looking into organizing a summer drop-in weekly soccer session for youths and continuing with fall and April soccer. The coaching clinics for coaches will continue to be offered yearly. This summer we are bringing Dave Spendlove’s Soccer Quest camp to Fernie. It will run August 20 to 24 for children ages 4 to 18. If you register before May 31 you will receive a 15 per cent discount. Registration is online at or call 250-352-GOAL.

We are encouraging all parents and soccer lovers to become involved in our organization to help further the development of soccer within our town. Please forward your name to Susan Rohn at, if you would like to become involved with the organization.
