Hockey and soccer seasons to begin soon

A new season begins for soccer and hockey in Sooke.

You had a long and fruitful summer of fun in the sun, time with your friends and perhaps even with your parents; now the time has come to dust off those cleats and that hockey stick and get ready for the next season of hockey and soccer.

Hockey

Hockey will start off with tryouts beginning on Aug. 31, which will run until Sept. 3., beginning at 5 p.m. at the SEAPARC. This year, there will be atom, peewee and midget divisions. There won’t be a bantam division.

Not that there isn’t enough interest in the sport. Seventeen teams will be taking to the ice this year, most of which are integrated boys and girls teams.

Among those 17 teams will be three female-only teams, in atom, bantam and midget divisions respectively.

The regular hockey season starts in mid-September.

For up to date info, go to sookeminorhockey.ca for full schedule postings and upcoming games.

Soccer

Those willing to duke it out on the grass rather than the ice (or perhaps both) will be happy to know soccer season is about to kick off once again.

Several registrations have already been held, but many players both youth and adult still need to get registered.

Precisely why the launching event is called the Kick off Jamboree on Sept. 2 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Fred Milne Park. Fun drills and a fast game for all ages. Registration will also be available on site.

The season kicks off Sept 12 for gold teams and Sept. 19 for silver and bronze teams and U12 and under.

“Some teams have already started practicing, so come on out and get registered and let’s get kickin’!” said Sooke Soccer Club vice-president Laura Lockhart.
