Soccer has started in Rockglen and it’s a hit! 23 kids ages 2-13 came out to orientation and more have came to practices since then. Soccer is a fun and easy sport for any age, with a huge outdoor field next to the rink there is lots of room to run around and get some fresh air. We have 3 coaches: Kaylem Prefontaine for ages 2-4, Alana Prefontaine for ages 5-7, and Ray Kuipers for ages 8+. I have been in contact with Coronach’s soccer league and we should be able to schedule games for the end of October.
Registration is $40 per kid
Soccer equipment needed: shin pads, cleats and long socks - you can find these at Sport-check, Walmart, Canadian Tire and other similar outfitters.
Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays
3:45-4:45pm for ages 2-4 and 5-7
5-6pm for ages 8+
We have had some amazing support from the community, the Town has given us $1,500 and maintained the field for our use, the Coop donated all the materials needed to build our nets, the baseball committee is sharing their field and donated jerseys, and the Rec Board has donated $600. Thank you to everyone who has helped us out, our program is a huge success thanks to you! You can find us on our Facebook page at Rockglen Soccer Association where we post all our information and any changes to our schedule.
