Who are we?

The Prince George Youth Soccer Association (PGYSA) has been a staple of the Prince George youth sports scene for many decades. Providing Initiation Physical Literacy, Recreational, Competitive, and Academy programming, the PGSYA IMPACT stream-based model has successfully developed many Officials, Coaches, Players and Teams.  

After a 3-year rebuilding process that started in 2018 and culminated with the submission of an application for Canada Soccer’s National Youth Club License in October 2021, our Club is excited to provide a structure that meets all minimum provincial and national standards. By implementing a Governance Board structure for example, the day-to-day running of the organization is conducted by a Director of Club Operations, while the Board of Directors focusses on financial and strategic direction.

Provincial and national membership standards and guidelines require that youth soccer clubs meet modern best practices. To meet the required standards and prepare for the future, the PGYSA updated and realigned its organizational framework. In line with our 2021-2025 Strategic Management Plan and the initiatives outlined in Canada Soccer’s Club Licensing and Grassroots guidelines, the PGYSA has implemented a player-first model that focusses on helping each player reach their individual potential.

With the implementation of our Club development Model and Technical Plan, our club Five Pillars of Development (Technical/Tactical/Physical/Psychological/Social) surround each player in a holistic support system. Physical and mental health and wellness are first in our development plan. This is supported by ensuring that our on-field staff meet all minimum technical certification and NCCP Theory certification. Off-field support staff in the areas of Nutrition, Psychological Skills, Movement, and Strength & Conditioning, are all experts in their field.

With an interconnected Club Model that shapes a pathway for every player, coach, and official, the PGSYA IMPACT, we strive to be a leading organization with the use of innovative techniques, sport science, and modern programming initiatives.

We are IMPACT.
