Soccer registration under way

Port Hardy, Port McNeill youth associations kick off 2011 season this week.

Registration for the 2011 youth soccer season open this week in both Port Hardy and Port McNeill, the two associations announced.

Registration forms may be picked up and dropped off at Port Hardy Recreation Centre, during staffed hours, starting Thursday and running through Mar. 25.

Cost is $55 for age groups U-6 through U-10 and $65 for divisional players U-12 through U-18. A late fee will be assessed to registrations submitted after Mar. 25.

Coaches and referees are desperately needed and any additional volunteers are welcome. For more information or to volunteer, contact Sarah at 250-949-6687 or at 250-230-6687.

In Port McNeill, registration began Monday and will continue through Mar. 28. Forms may be picked up and/or dropped off at Timberland Sports.

Cost is $60 for mini players (born 2001-2006) and $70 for divisional players (born 1993-2000), and includes one pair of soccer socks and an individual/team photo combination. Discounts are available for families with three or more players, with the first two children at the full fee and additional (younger) children half-price.

A $25 late fee will be assessed after Mar. 28, and players registered late cannot be guaranteed a spot on a team. Late registrants not rostered on a team will be placed on a wait list for potential roster openings.
