Registration free for soccer refs

Free registration and lunch are among the perks awaiting prospective youth soccer referees

Free registration and lunch are among the perks awaiting prospective youth soccer referees when North Island Youth Soccer hosts a referees clinic Sunday, April 14, at Sunset Elementary School in Port McNeill.

New referees are welcome to participate at no charge, and the clinic is a must for first-time refs. A clinic for mini-level referees (players 10-under) will be held from 9 a.m.-noon and is open to interested referees age 12 and over.

Following lunch, a clinic for referees for the divisional level (U12 and above) will be held from 1-4 p.m. Referees age 14 and older are eligible.

North Island Youth Soccer is always in need of referees. It’s a good way to get involved in your community and also involves some pay. You may register early by emailing Scott Harris at morhar18@hotmail.com.

Player registration continues through this month in Port McNeill, with forms available for pickup and drop-off at Timberland Sports Centre, and in Port Hardy, with registration at the Civic Centre Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. through Mar. 27.

A coaches’ clinic will also be held following Spring Break. Be prepared for some practical work on the field. Times and location when they are announced.
