Those wanting to extend their soccer season into the winter will now have a chance

Those wanting to extend their soccer season into the winter will now have a chance thanks to a new initiative from the Williams Lake Youth Soccer Association.

The WLYSA is excited to announce its first Indoor Soccer Season, The Winter Futsal.

The league will see players from U6 to U15 divisions participate in a co-ed environment where they can learn skills and have fun, while staying active throughout the winter months, said WLYSA office administrator, Alexis Forseille.

The season will run from Jan. 10 to March 14 in Williams Lake and from Jan. 8 to March 14 at 150 Mile.

Sessions in Williams Lake will take place every Thursday and will run at Nesika elementary. The U6-U7 division will play from 5-6 p.m., the U8-U18 age group will go from 6-7 p.m. and the U11-U12 group will play from 7-8 p.m.

At Williams Lake Secondary School, the U13-15 division will play from 6-7 p.m.

In 150 Mile sessions will be every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-7 p.m. for the U8-U12 divisions.

There will be 10 sessions in Williams Lake for $50 ($5 per session) and 20 sessions in 150 Mile for $100 ($5 per session).

“At this time we are only offering 16 spaces per age group and will be on a first come first serve with full payment basis,” said WLYSA office administrator Alexis Forseille. “If we receive an overwhelming amount of interest, we will look to add more sessions to try to accommodate as many people as possible.”

Due to the limited spaces available the WLYSA will take paper registrations only with cash and cheque payment.
