CARLYLE - The Moose Mountain Soccer Club recently held its organizational meeting, and the season is set to start April 26.
There are 50 girls and 36 boys presently registered in age groups from U3 to U15. Telia Dolphin is the president, Krista Dolphin vice-president, Sarah Kirkness secretary and Krista Meisner its treasurer. Kennedy Tessier is the liaison coach and Scott Kirkness is the social media co-ordinator.
These young athletes reside in Arcola, Carlyle and surrounding areas with their home games played at Carlyle Lions Park. In June 2021, Carlyle was named Soccer Town Saskatchewan and received a generous grant for $5,000 from Living Sky Sports and Entertainment. These funds were used to purchase nets, benches, canopies and various other equipment.
Said Meisner, “Our club is looking forward to a very enjoyable year. Our enrolment is way up over last year and there is a lot of interest.”
Added Dolphin, “One of our goals this year is to host our very own tournament in Carlyle. We also plan to help some of those who cannot afford the registration costs, so corporate or personal donations are more than welcome.”
The Moose Mountain Soccer Club plays an informal schedule against teams from surrounding towns including Redvers, Kipling and Stoughton. The executive also wishes to thank Monster Trucking of Arcola for their generous donation of jerseys for the various age groups this season.
