The all-season indoor soccer facility fundraising effort recently received a nice shot in the arm with a generous contribution from the RDEK.

The Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Board of Directors has agreed to provide $130,000 toward the development of the Kootenay East Youth Soccer Association’s (KEYSA) new proposed indoor sports facility project to be built in Cranbrook. 

The youth soccer organization is currently gathering funds and support to build a $1.7 million all-season indoor soccer/sports facility in Cranbrook to serve sport clubs throughout the city and surrounding areas.

“From all of us at KEYSA we would like to thank everyone at the RDEK for supporting us with our vision towards our indoor sports facility,” the organization stated on their social media page.

Fundraising for the KEYSA Indoor Sports Facility kicked off in the fall of 2017 and by year-end they had raised some $50,000 of their $500,000 goal and that was before the recent $130,000 contribution from the RDEK.
