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

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.
