Media Reporting Instructions

The Kelowna Women’s Soccer League is excited to announce that, for the 2017 season, we will be continuing our partnership with the Kelowna Daily Courier and the Capital News. This year, we will be posting statistics on our KWSL website and publishing results in local newspapers.

Publishing game reports provides positive exposure and promotion for our league, the sport of soccer, and a healthy lifestyle. Published game reports help demonstrate that soccer is a lifetime sport, and we hope that this coverage will help to encourage young women to continue playing after finishing their youth programs. Encouraging more girls to aspire to play competitive or recreational soccer as adults strengthens the player base and the future of the KWSL. In addition, the exposure brings more awareness to the KWSL and may encourage more women who are currently not playing soccer to potentially sign up to play in future seasons.

We also recognize that your team sponsors appreciate getting positive exposure from the money they provide to teams in the KWSL. Publishing the names of sponsoring organizations in the newspaper and on our website provides them with this. The more exposure we are able to provide to sponsors, the more likely they are to be a continuing supporter of the KWSL.

Media Report Submission

Please use the following guidelines for submitting your media reports:
  • ex. descriptions of goals, the score at halftime, outstanding goalkeeping, the names of players providing assists, etc…

At the 2011 KWSL Annual General Meeting, representatives voted to continue enforcing a 12:00 pm deadline for all media reports on the day following the game. In the past, team media representatives have found it easiest to comply with this deadline by getting into the habit of submitting game reports as soon as they return home once their game is completed! Every team is required to participate. Failure to comply with this deadline will result in a $25 fine for your team, as per resolutions 055 and 064 of the KWSL Administrative Policies. Teams will be given one “grace period” for late or missing reports.

All of the above information can be found under the Players Information section of our website. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information. Have a great season!
