Youth soccer registration deadline looms

Players must be signed up by Saturday, March 26 for guaranteed placement in OYSS spring season; play begins April 6

Spring soccer registration for the upcoming Oceanside Youth Soccer Society season continues this week, with the final deadline for guaranteed placement fast approaching.

Regular registration for OYSS spring soccer closes this Saturday, March 26. Players who register after this day will be placed on a wait list for team placement, with no guarantee of a spot, and will no be eligible to attend Academy training on April 6, the association has announced.

Registration is open for all players in the Pony (ages 5 to 9 in 2016) and House (ages 10-17) leagues. Registration for Pony League and U12-U15 Tier 3 players will include late afternoon/early evening OYSS Soccer Academy skill development sessions, at no extra charge, beginning before opening-day games April 6 and continuing each Wednesday thereafter until May 25.

The spring 2016 season wraps up June 11.

Boys and girls will play together on mixed teams in age classes, unless the number of players is sufficient to accommodate separate boys and girls teams.

Pending final field confirmation, games are typically played Saturday mornings at Parksville Community Park and on Saturdays at Kwalikum Secondary, Arrowview Elementary and Springwood Elementary school fields.

Cost for the season for all divisions is $100 per player, but those returning from the fall 2015 season receive a reduced $75 rate.
