Youth soccer registration begins

North Island associations set Mar. 27 deadline to sign up for 2012 season

Registration is under way for the 2012 North Island youth soccer season, which will begin with the first week of practices April 10.

The North Island Youth Soccer Association, which is coordinating registration and scheduling for all communities this year, is asking for new and returning volunteers to take part in its annual general meeting 6 p.m. April 2 at North Island Secondary School.

The deadline for players to register in all local associations is Mar. 27.

Coaches are urgently needed for all programs, and no experience is necessary. To volunteer or for more info, call Liza Furney in Port McNeill at 250-956-3306 or Marc Grenier in Port Hardy at 250-949-8928.

In Port McNeill, forms may be picked up and dropped off at Timberland Sports Centre. Fees are $25 for tots (born 2008), $60 for “mini” players (U-6 through U-10 age groups) and $70 for divisional players (U-12 through U-18 levels).

Fees will included a pair of soccer socks and team and individual photo.

A late charge of $25 will be strictly enforced after Mar. 27. Also, late registrations will not be guaranteed team placement and may be placed on a wait list for team availability. Finally, any returning player who has not returned a uniform from last season will need to return the uniform or pay Port McNeill Youth Soccer a replacement fee before practicing or playing with their team.

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

In Port Hardy, fees are $55 for mini players and $65 for divisional-level. A tot program will be run only if sufficient players and coaches express an interest. Fees for tots would be $35.

Port Hardy Youth Soccer is still seeking a site for registration, which will continue through Mar. 27. See next week’s Gazette for location, and in the meantime registration forms and information can be acquired by calling Sarah at 250-949-6687.

In Port Alice, the registration contact is Tracy Roper. To register, email her at tracyd.roper@scotiabank.com or call 250-284-3587.

The tournament season begins with the annual Port McNeill Mud Bowl May 5-6, and wraps up with the Port Hardy Tournament June 23-24. North Island Youth Soccer will also introduce jamboree weekends, mixing players from various communities for fun games May 26-27 and June 2-3.
