Indoor soccer comes to Stettler

Soccer will no longer be a “summer only” sport in the Stettler area, thanks to a new initiative by the Stettler Minor Soccer Association.

“We are excited about the possibility of offering indoor soccer this year,” said Kevin Klys, president of Stettler minor soccer.

There will games and practices at the Stettler agriplex on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.

“Our registration is on Oct. 4 and 5 at the recreation centre in the upstairs lobby,” said Klys.

“It will start at 6 p.m. and go on until 8 p.m. each night.”

But he warned that there would be limited space for the indoor soccer.

The plans are for U8 and U10 teams to go through a 22-week soccer skills development program on Wednesday nights.

“We would like to have some parents come down to help a little and at the same time learn how to coach the kids as well,” said Klys.

As for teams of higher ages, they will be in a soccer league under Central Alberta Soccer Association.

“They will practice at the agriplex on Tuesdays and Thursdays nights,” said Klys.

Although a league schedule has yet to emerge, Klys said he expected the traveling soccer teams will be making regular visits to Red Deer and Camrose for league games.

The league is also scheduled to run for 22 weeks.

“We have tried to keep the fees for this as low as possible. We would very much like to get a few sponsors,” said Klys.

He can be contacted at 403-741-7764.
