CARLYLE - The Moose Mountain Soccer Club has started its spring season and the excitement level is high. Presently there are 74 kids registered In the U5-U15 age groups.
These young athletes reside in Arcola, Carlyle and surrounding areas, with games and practices held at Carlyle Lions Park Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The complete schedule was finalized by the Southeast Soccer League back in April. This year the Moose Mountain club will see age groups U7-U13 competing home and away with teams from Redvers, Stoughton and Wawota.
The team’s home openers are presently scheduled for May 16 against Stoughton.
Scott Kirkness is the team president, Michelle Redstone vice-president, and Krista Meisner the treasurer. Newcomers Marie Desmarais and Christine Robertson have also joined the board. Desmarais is secretary while Robertson is the coach’s liaison.
Kirkness will also continue to operate their social media channels.
“I for one am really pleased with the makeup of the board. Three of the four board members from last year stayed on, which brings us stability. We were also able to add two valuable new contributors, which gives us fresh insight,” he said.
The Moose Mountain Soccer Club is still looking for anyone interested in officiating. There is no experience required, and all inquiries can be made via email at email@example.com or be messaging them on Facebook or Instagram.
“Our club is excited to provide affordable, organized and fun activities for kids and families during our spring season,” said Kirkness. “Soccer here in the southeast is thriving. A combination of the warm sun, laid back camp chair seating and limited travel all really adds up to a great atmosphere for families.”
