Young Sookies warm up for upcoming soccer season

A quick update on registration for the upcoming soccer season in Sooke.

Spring Soccer 2015 enters its eigth week and with only two weeks left to go kids are kicking it up in fun small sided games.

SSCs U14 girls Layla Martinez, Grace Bishop, Addison Jarvis, Faith Knoles, Shae Yates, Alex Peters, Makenna Franklin, Sky Langdon and Georgia Jackson have been diligently coaching the Sandlot group ages 3-5 with a hands on/foot on approach to guide the wee ones in the right direction.

Coaches Rob Oyler, Mike Veltri, Robin Rusjan, Dave Peters, Herb Haldane, Cathy Coutts, loud mouth Mick J, Ken and Sachi Swift have been out there each week organizing the U7-U11 players.

We couldn’t do it without our amazing refs Marin Clarkston, Christina Seabrook, Zachary Miller, Hagen Herold, Matthew Miller, Sachi Swift and Wil Batten blowing the whistle and calling the shots.  Great work guys!

Registration for 2015/16 is available for the next two weeks –June 18 and 25, Thursdays 6-8 p.m. at the clubhouse. Get it done before summer starts so we can have a smooth start to next season!  Also available online at: www.sookesoccer.com.

SSC would like to thank everyone for  volunteering to help make our second season of Spring Soccer a success.

Shout out to the parents who are there to help set up nets/fields each week.

Laura Lockhart

VP, SSC
