GIRL POWER Soccer Program: This Fall!

This upcoming season will see a NEW GIRLS-ONLY SOCCER PROGRAM at the Mid-Isle Soccer Club for players aged 5-8 (born 2010-2013). The program will feature fun 3-on-3 games on Saturdays at Forrest Field during the regular Pony Soccer time slot (specific time TBD). Girl Power players will also get to train together as a group on Monday nights at the Club’s (free!) Development Sessions. The season starts in September and runs to March.

This program is voluntary and optional – if your daughter wants to run with the boys, she can run with the boys. But if you want a different way to introduce your girl to soccer, team sports, and fun on the field, GIRL POWER might be the program for you!

REGISTER BEFORE JUNE 30 to confirm your spot in the program and avoid late registration fees! Every girl in the 5-8 year-old age group that registers will be contacted during the summer and asked if they want to participate in the Girl Power program. More information will be forthcoming at that time.

Mini World Cup – WHAT A PARTY!!

About 1,000 soccer players aged 7-10 ( plus their families) descended on Ladysmith last weekend for the annual Upper Island Soccer Association’s Mini World Cup event. Games between “nations” were played on 21 fields at 6 different venues around town. In all, between 3,500-4,000 guests were treated to sunshine, soccer, and Mid-Isle Soccer Club hospitality. Many thanks to the many volunteers who pitched in to make this event another classic!
