The spring session of youth soccer in Barriere will be starting on April 25.

Barriere Youth Soccer Association rep Chris Matthews says to date there are 117 players registered ranging in age from age four to 13.

“We are doing an eight week spring season with plans to have our U7 to U13 teams play four games against Clearwater,” says Matthews, “We are kicking off the season with a BC Soccer sponsored Grassroots Festival for our U7 to U13 players.”

The festival format is comprised of four main stations: movement, dribbling, passing/receiving the ball, and shooting/goal keeping.

“We’re really looking forward to it,” said Matthews, noting the team has also purchased soccer jerseys that we will be handing out to players to use for the season.
