Youth players ready to kick off soccer season

As CMSA President Dave Grantham noted, “Castlegar Minor Soccer has been an integral part of the Castlegar community for many decades."

Are you going to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil June 12 to July 13? If you are or even if you can’t make it, you can get primed for the soccer season this Monday April 14 when the Castlegar Minor Soccer Association starts their season with its first game at 4:30pm with U/4 teams playing on the pitch at Millennium Park with more games following that day and through the week for youth teams of all ages.

As CMSA President Dave Grantham noted, “Castlegar Minor Soccer has been an integral part of the Castlegar community for many decades, providing a place for our kids to play this great game.”

CMSA has been providing the oversight for Whitecaps indoor development camps and coaching sessions since February 6.

The Castlegar News caught up with an anonymous soccer mom for an exclusive insight into the back action of the game.

“My children are very ecstatic that soccer is starting; all three play in U/13 house and rep, U/11 and U/8,” she said.

Registration is almost completely full for this season. However CMSA will have a booth set up on Monday, April 14 at Twin Rivers field at Millennium Park for last opportunities to register any soccer players who still wish to participate.
