Youth Soccer is starting!
We have a lot of kids out this year and the Recreation Board
has been busy trying to collect registration forms and get things organized and ready for the season.  Here are the details:

Pre K and kindergarten will play at one level.  1st and 2nd graders will be at another level while 3rd and 4th grades will be together and 5th and 6th graders will play together.

Pre K and kindergarteners and 1st and 2nd graders will have 4 teams each and play 4 on 4.  Due to the lack of coaches, they will all practice together.  The plan is one practice a week, on Tuesdays starting September 12th. Practice will run from 6:00-7:00.  A second practice could be scheduled if the kids, parents, and coaches would like an additional practice.  The games will be played on Saturdays starting on September 16th.  Pre K/kindergarten will play at 8:30 and 1st/2nd grade will play at 9:30. On game days, the first 20 minutes will be further instruction/ practice and then the game will start.  It will be 4 quarters in a game of 6-8 minutes in a quarter.  Everyone will play.

3rd/4th and 5th/6th graders will have practice 2x/week, Mondays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:00.  Games for the 3rd/4th graders will be at 10:30 with the 5th/6th graders to follow.  As the season progresses, the teams will be blended together as we have scheduled a game with the teams in Murray on October 14th.  We are also communicating with Osceola and a couple of other nearby communities to see if we can get games against them.  If we are able to get games with any other community, this will be announced by email and on Facebook.  Everyone will play.

The kids need to have a pair of shin guards for all practices and games. The kids will receive a shirt for playing in the league, please email the size of the shirt and your child’s name to erik_niggemeyer@hotmail.com
