The tournament held in honour of Kamloops Youth Soccer Association pioneer Mike Bartram will be held on McArthur Island this weekend.
Forty KYSA teams in the under-13 through under-18 divisions will be in action.
From the time he arrived in Kamloops in 1973 to his untimely death in 2000, Bartram dedicated himself to turning the youth soccer organization into one that is respected across the province.
Bartram was a volunteer, served on the KYSA executive committee for many years, refereed and coached and is remembered as a driving force behind the growth of the female side of the game.
A father of three daughters, he helped develop the girls' program from its infancy.
