Agassiz Youth Soccer program needs support to keep running

Volunteers will be needed to keep kids on the soccer pitch next year

Options for youth sports could become even more limiting in the Agassiz area next year, if more volunteers don’t surface soon.

The Agassiz Minor Soccer Association, which has offered hundreds of children the chance to play ‘the beautiful game’ close to home, will be in danger of folding next year without proper support.

Paul Frederickson is currently organizing the program, but will not be volunteering next year as his children will be out of the league’s scope. Similarly, volunteer organizer Shaun Delcourt will be moving away and unable to help out.

Coaches and parent helpers are going to be needed for this season and beyond, and Frederickson is hoping to show someone the ropes as the season progresses.

Agassiz Minor Soccer is well supported by local businesses, and donations to the program keep the registration rates lower than in neighbouring communities.

Games are played on Saturday mornings, at the Agassiz Fairgrounds.

Registration is now open, with sign-up at the Agassiz Fitness/ Activity Centre during business hours. Agassiz Minor Soccer is open to players ages five to 16. The season starts on April 10.

For more information, phone Shaun at 604-796-0430 or Paul at 604-798-8965.
