Minor soccer kicks off another season this week depending on weather and field conditions.

“We will hopefully start May 8,” says Angie Halverson, president of the High Prairie Minor Soccer Society.

“The start of the season has been delayed by snow and wet fields.”

Action at St. Andrew’s School is scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 5:30 p.m. and running to around 8:30 p.m.

Registration of players has declined from previous years when about 200 children and youth were signed up.

“We’re still finishing up registration but it’s low this year,” Halverson says.

The season is scheduled to wrap up the third week of June.

Other games are being planned with teams from other communities.

“We’re trying to organize a few and form a youth team,” Halverson says.

Organizers appreciate all those who have offered to serve as coaches and volunteers in various roles.

Parents and players are reminded that closed-toe shoes and shin pads are mandatory to play.

Steps to grow soccer with a community team for boys and girls over 13 to compete with teams from other towns are also underway.

Last year, the High Prairie league hosted visiting teams in separate tournaments for younger and older players.

During soccer nights, portable washrooms will be on the site for the convenience of all participants.
