The winter Youth Indoor Soccer League and Youth Basketball League seasons will begin Saturday, January 7, 2017, and all the action will take place at the Worcester County Recreation Center (WCRC) in Snow Hill. Both leagues are co-ed.
The five Youth Indoor Soccer League divisions are ages 3-4, and grades K-1, 2-3, 4-5, and 6-8. Ages 3-4 and grades K-1 divisions will play on Saturday mornings, grades 6-8 on Monday and some Wednesday evenings, grades 4-5 on Wednesday or Thursday evenings, and grades 2-3 on Thursday evenings. Practice dates, times, and locations are to be determined.

Volunteer coaches are needed to run successful leagues. Please contact the WCRC prior to January 5 if you are interested in volunteering this winter. An orientation meeting will be held for all interested volunteers.
Emphasis for all youth recreation leagues is placed on skill development, participation, sportsmanship, and most of all, kids having fun. Both the soccer and basketball leagues are designed for pure enjoyment and skill development. Scores and standings are not recorded.
The cost for each program is $30 per player ($25 for each additional child) and financial aid is available for those who have a demonstrated need. Proof of eligibility is required. The registration deadline is Thursday, January 5. Those registering after this deadline may not have the request met for certain teams or coaches, and there is an additional $5 fee after the registration deadline. Sign up today for these fun-filled, skill-developing recreation programs.
