Recreational mini soccer is a great way to enjoy the May-June evenings with our children and neighbours. This year children born in the years of 2010 to 2015 are the right ages for our league.
We love being able to share our time on the field with our child – running, laughing, cheering, learning skills and being a part of a team together. We encourage parents to volunteer as coaches or assistant coaches for their child’s team. We will support you with coaching tips, a manual of games and drills and by being available throughout the season for you to bounce ideas off. At the mini soccer level, you do not need to know how to play soccer to be a great coach and role model for our children!
The behind the scenes work is already in play for the 2018 season. Karthi Pariyasamy and Rachael Fecyk-Lamb are the co-directors of mini-soccer again this year, and we have most our amazing team of conveners with us again: Ashey (U3/4), Michelle (U6), Janine (U7/8 girls), and Rachael and Karthi (U7/8 boys). Peter Andranistakis also continues to work closely with us all as our indispensable Mini-Soccer Equipment Manager.
At this point, we are looking for 1 more convener for the U5 (co-ed) group; these are children born in 2012. Convening involves attending one meeting, making teams after registration in March, distributing equipment to coaches in April and then sending emails to organize coaches in the spring. It is not a difficult job (takes about 30 to 60 minutes a week), and it means so much to so many. We have all of the information you need, and we will support you in this position as much as you like throughout the season. Please email the mini-soccer directors if you are interested in learning more about being a convener.
Registration for the 2018 season will be open by February 26, 2018. Information about how to register on-line will be available on the Whyte Ridge Community Centre website.
Also visit the Whyte Ridge Community Centre Website for all the updated information you need about Mini Soccer.
We look forward to another successful soccer season!
