The North Bay Youth Soccer Club office is closed due to COVID-19.  We are working from home and still answering messages.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email us at   A phone message, or send a message through Facebook. 

It has been a hard decision but the North Bay Yourh Soccer club has made the decision to cancel the Outdoor 2020 Soccer Season due to Covid and restrictions that are in place.  Ontario Soccer has canceled all soccer related activities which include clinics, meetings, practices, and games until at least July.  Our registrations have been also been extremely low, which is understandable do to the uncertainty of Covid, and some parents have called with concern that even if we were to continue with the 2020 outdoor season they don’t feel comfortable with their child participating.  

We will be refunding the Registration Fee that has been paid over the next weeks back to the method of payment.  Please be patient for the refund as it can take a few weeks to reflect back to the method of payment once we have completed the Registration fee refund.  

We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to an amazing Outdoor 2021 Soccer Season.  

Stay safe

Coach's Corner

The Offside Rule 

We have now made an information sheet which provides information on the offside rule for all coaches who are running the U11's and above. If you have any questions on the offside rule please don't hesitate to contact the office on 705-494-7388.

The Retreat Line

The rational behind the retreat line and guidance on how to implement it is now available under the coaching tab. This rule is now being implemented for all U7 to U12 teams in North Bay Youth Soccer Club. It's vital that the coaches of this age group understand the rule. For more information on the retreat line please visit the Ontario Soccer Website.  

U5 and U6 Divisions: Tips and Tricks

In the past, some coaches have had the parents stand on the side lines, about a meter from the line and if the ball goes their way they tap the ball back into play.  This idea has worked for some and some of the children who are shyer were able to play easier knowing mom or dad were close.  Of course not all parents will want to participate, so please use your judgement. 

For line changes, some coaches have used colour towels and had 3 or 4 (depending on the division) children sit on each colour.  When it is time for the line to change, the coach yells out the colour of the towel and those children run out on to the field and the others go back to the towel they were sitting on previously.  Some coaches have used numbers, but the children often forgot what number they were.  Another coach used colour bands for the child’s wrist; this was ok until the children were more interested in the band then playing soccer.  Ultimately, please use whatever works for your team.  Please also let the office know what works for you so we can share it with other coaches.  We are always trying to improve and make things easier for coaches, so any hints or tricks you use would be wonderful to share. 

We also have a coaching page on our website for coaching the U5 Division.  Please click on this link for more information

Soccer Camps

For the past 30 years the Rapides Soccer Club has been instrumental in the development of Youth Soccer in North Bay. One of the many ways the Club has contributed to local soccer is through the establishment of the Rapides Mini Soccer Camp. The Camp was founded by Susan Knight and first developed in 1988 from the need to build well-balanced players. The Camp provides an opportunity for children to participate in an affordable and professionally run soccer school.

This year the Camp is being held daily: Monday July 6th to Friday July 10th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. location at VETERAN'S SOCCER Field. The registration fee is $50.00 and early ENROLMENT is encouraged as spots fill up quickly. Please make cheques payable to Rapides Soccer Club.  Each Camper gets a T-shirt!

A message from the Nipissing University Lakers

On behalf of Nipissing University and Nipissing Athletics, we want to express our gratitude and appreciation for the ongoing support from the North Bay Youth Soccer Club. We have prepared a short video to say thank you! Check out the video. 



Message From Paul Cook Head Coach of Youth Soccer:


Thank you for volunteering to support Youth Soccer Programs again this year. We have close to 2,000 children registered this year and we couldn't run our leagues without your ongoing commitment and support.

As Head Coach for North Bay Youth Soccer I wanted to take this opportunity to remind all of our coaches that we are a, "House League" and we expect that you will coach using fun, fair play, sportsmanship and player to development to guide each of you again this year.

Remember you are role models for the players and their families. Unfortunately each year we lose a number of our referees because of the actions of a small minority of coaches and parents. We ask you to be patient; especially with our younger officials as like many of you they are learning their new roles and responsibilities. Any abuse of our officials will nor be tolerated.

One of my roles as Head Coach is dealing with complaints regarding coaches. These could include complaints from other coaches, referees, players or parents. Complaints are to be directed to the Soccer Office and if they cannot be resolved between our coaches or the Soccer Office they will be directed to me for follow up. We are very fortunate, especially when we consider how many games are played in a season that we do not receive too many complaints regarding our coaches and this is a testament to the quality of volunteer coaches involved in our organization.

Again on behalf of our Executive thank you and best of luck to everyone this season.
