Registration set for soccer league

Representatives for the Tucumcari Youth Soccer League announced recently that there will be soccer registration on Aug. 19, 20 and 23.

According to Brenda Bishop of the league, there are some changes in soccer this year. The major change is that there will only be a single season, from Sept. 18 to Oct. 23.
Bishop said that most games will be on Saturdays with some scheduled during the week.  To register their children for soccer, parents should come to the Tucumcari Recreation Center with their children on any of the three days from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The recreation center is located at 900 E Laughlin.

According to Bishop, due to the tight time frame, registrations will not be accepted after August 27.
The fee for soccer is $30 which includes a team shirt. Youths must provide their own shorts and shoes.
Also the soccer league is looking for coaches and referees who like working with young people. Bishop said that no experience is necessary to either coach or referee. Coaching Teams will also be welcome. Parents must bring a birth certificate to registration since children must be at least four years old by August 1.
