Register for BCRD’s Youth Soccer League by Friday
HAILEY — Registration for Blaine County Recreation District’s Youth Soccer League is open through Friday. This popular program emphasizes skill development, sportsmanship and fun and is open to boys and girls in kindergarten to sixth grade. The season runs from Sept. 3 to Oct. 19, with a mandatory one-hour skills evaluation for first- through sixth-grade players the week next week.
The kindergarten program is a co-ed, clinic-style soccer development program that will practice Mondays and Wednesdays. First- to sixth-grade teams will be separated by gender and age, will practice twice a week and will play games on Saturdays. All practices and games for the league will take place in Hailey.
The registration fee is $65 and includes instruction, a team jersey and a participation award. Early registration is encouraged and will help staffers form teams and prepare practice and game schedules.
Volunteer coaches are essential to this program’s success. The registration fee is waived for coaches’ children. If you are interested in coaching, contact the BCRD prior to registering your child for more information. Team sponsorship opportunities are also available — sponsors get their business name on team jerseys as well as other acknowledgments.
For full program, coaching and sponsorship information and to register, call Dave Keir at 208-578-2273 or go to bcrd.org.
