In its third year, the Drumheller Coed Recre­ational Soc­cer League is look­ing to keep grow­ing.

The league has ex­panded its mem­ber­ship over the first two years, and this year de­cided to for­mal­ize the or­ga­ni­za­tion by form­ing an ex­ec­u­tive. Pres­i­dent Gavin Makse ex­pects a strong turnout.

“We would an­tic­i­pate af­ter hav­ing 73 peo­ple reg­is­ter last year, that we would con­tinue to grow,” said Makse. “We want to make sure that there is enough for each team so peo­ple won’t be short.”

Some of the changes they are look­ing at are go­ing to full field with nine play­ers a side and a full net.

We are go­ing to change a few things be­cause a lot of peo­ple didn’t like the smaller nets and the off­side line, all those lit­tle things,” said Makse. “Now it will all be true FIFA rules.”

They are also look­ing at start­ing league play ear­lier than in pre­vi­ous sea­sons. In pre­vi­ous years, the sea­son has ran late into June, which lim­ited the par­tic­i­pa­tion for some of the teams as the school year ended.

They are tak­ing reg­is­tra­tion un­til April 4 by con­tact­ing Makse at 403-823-0504 or con­tact­ing Lucy Deitzer at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity. More in­for­ma­tion can be found at the league’s Face­book group called Drumheller Coed Recre­ational Soc­cer League.

The Drumheller Coed Recre­ational Soc­cer League is go­ing into its third year and an­tic­i­pates con­tin­ued growth.
