KEYSA would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for attending our tournament. We would also like to thank everyone for their ongoing patience as we figured out the scheduling issues. We have everything all sorted out now and will be much smoother next year!

 We had a fantastic weekend with teams from U10 all the way up to U18 boys and girls. We had a total of 79 teams that participated over the weekend.

KEYSA would love to request that teams submit their favourite photos from the tournament. You can send them to We would love to include them on our tournament page and our Facebook page!
