Soccer registration under way

Soccer develops agility, speed and stamina, and also teaches children the importance of teamwork. It can also play an important part in your child’s physical and social development. Suffolk Parks & Recreation offers a Spring Youth Outdoor Soccer League for boys and girls ages 4 to 13.

The cost for registration is $60 for residents and $70 for non-residents. All registrants must have proof of age and residency. Parents can register through March 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday at the following locations:

  • Northern Shores Recreation Center — 6701 Respass Beach Road
  • Creekside Recreation Center — 1000 Bennetts Creek Road
  • King’s Fork Recreation Center — 350 Kings Fork Road
  • East Suffolk Recreation Center — 134 S. Sixth St.

Practices start the week of March 25, and the league games begin April 6 and will last eight weeks. Games will be played at Sleepy Hole Park and Peanut Park. For information regarding the league or volunteer coaching, call 514-7270.
