The Kernersville Soccer Association was formed in 1983 and was incorporated in 1986 as a non-profit organization. The Kernersville Soccer Association offers recreational soccer for boys and girls ages 4 to 18, as well as competitive soccer for boys and girls ages 7 to 18.
In the beginning, our games were played at a local elementary school. In March of 1998, KSA and the Town of Kernersville entered into an agreement for the development of Beeson Road Park which has now been renamed Ivey M Redmon Sports Complex. KSA leased land from the Town of Kernersville and began developing our soccer complex. We planted turf , installed irrigation system for the fields and equipped them with goals, nets, flags and benches for five full-sized soccer fields. In July of 1999, we began construction of our building, which houses our concession stand, office, meeting room, restrooms and garage. We have also constructed a pump house, which houses our irrigation and fertilization systems.
We not only are responsible for 100% of the maintenance of the soccer complex, but we also equip and/or maintain several soccer practice sites around Kernersville. All this was done through membership dues, local business support and fund raising efforts. KSA's mission is to provide a quality environment for every youth player who desires to participate in soccer. KSA strives to provide age and skill level appropriate training, coaching, and competition.
Through our various programs every child will find the correct situation for themselves. Our club offers four distinct level of competition. These are Recreational, U10 Academy, Challenge, and Classic. Our U10 Academy, Challenge and Classic all fall under our Select Program. This allows our youth players to compete at the appropriate level for them and to develop their abilities in an appropriate environment. Our seasons for Recreational and Select soccer are both Fall and Spring.
To assist KSA's coaches in providing adequate training we have a Director of Coaching. Our Director conduct weekly training sessions for our Select players. During the winter, our Directors conduct a weekly Agility Training for our Select players. These programs are meant to supplement existing team training sessions. During the summer, we host a soccer camp for individual players ages 5-14. During the year, we host referee recertification and certification courses.
