County Rec now taking applications for spring soccer league.
The deadline has passed, but it is not too late to sign your child up for Carbon County Recreation's spring soccer league. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world, and is a great way for your child to have interaction with other kids. These leagues are low pressure and high on fun and learning.
Carbon Rec's soccer leagues begin in kindergarten and go all the way up through high school. The leagues are split into grade divisions. Each division plays a league schedule against other teams in its league. There are 10 league games. Games are scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Castle Heights Elementary, at either 5 p.m. or 6 p.m.
There is also a mini skills camp scheduled for children in kindergarten and first grade. For three weeks the recreation department will go to each school one day a week teaching the fundamentals of soccer to the children. Sally Mauro will meet on Mondays, Wellington on Tuesdays, Castle Heights on Wednesdays, and Creekview on Thursdays. If a player signs up for both camp and league, they will get a $4 discount for both programs.
The cost involved with the soccer program is $19 per child. If you sign up for the league and the mini camp the cost is $25. League play will begin the first week of April.
The recreation department is also looking for volunteers to help coach. Anyone interested in coaching should contact the recreation office located at 90 North 100 East in the Price Community Center, or call 637-5092. Coaches must agree to have a back ground check before being allowed to coach.
