Young soccer players interested in taking part in the 2012 North Island Youth Soccer season will need to register by Tuesday (Mar. 27) to secure a spot on a team.

Registration is being taken separately in each community, but all share the same deadline.

In Port McNeill, forms may be picked up and dropped off at Timberland Sports Centre.

Late registration will be accepted, but will include a $25 late fee and will not guarantee the player a spot on the team for the coming season.

Fees range are $25 for tots (born in 2008), $60 for “mini” level players (U6 through U10) and $70 for competitive divisional players (U12 through U18).

A pair of soccer socks and team and individual photo are included in the fee.

For more info on Port McNeill registration call Tammy at 250-956-4518.

In Port Hardy, registration is held at the Recreation Centre (pool lobby) from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday until Mar. 27.

Fees are $65 for divisional players and $55 for mini.

A tot division will be held only if enough players and coaches express an interest.

Fees for tots are $35, and all fees include a team and individual photo for each player.
