Rec Soccer returns for third year
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.
