Agassiz provides recreational soccer

All kids need to burn off a little steam now and then, and the Agassiz Minor Soccer club can be the perfect place.

Registration is starting now for the club, and games will start around the first weekend of April, depending on how quickly people sign up.

Agassiz Minor Soccer is a little different than the Chilliwack club, says president Shaun Delcourt.

“This is a more recreational fun league,” he says. They play seven-a-side, and each team has about 11 players.

They use smaller “mini” nets, and don’t call offside.

The idea is to get kids out playing, enjoying the game, he adds. So far, that’s been a success. The last two seasons, there have been around 150 players registered, ages five to 16.

The club is open to players regardless of where they live, he adds. While most of the players are from Agassiz, they’ve had families from Harrison Hot Springs, Rosedale, Yarrow and even Hope.

“We don’t exclude anyone,” he says.

Registration is $30 per player, slightly down from last year’s fees. Larger families only pay for the first two players, and the rest register for free.

The fee includes a team jersey, which the kids get to keep at the end of the season.

Also needed this year are a few more parent volunteers to help with coaching.

“We always need volunteers,” he says.

Registration is now open and is being held at the Fitness/Activity Centre in Agassiz.
