WL SOCCER NEWS AND UPDATES
Updated: Oct 5, 2019
It’s time for Lakecity men’s soccer players to get back to kicking the ball. Registration for the Williams Lake Men’s Futsal League is now underway. The league will feature four teams with each team playing once per week at 7pm or 8pm on Tuesday nights at the Lake City Secondary gymnasium on Carson Drive.
The fast-paced and intense game differs from typical indoor soccer as there are no use of the walls and there is a boundary around the perimeter of the gym. Futsal uses a weighted soccer ball and focuses more on foot skill then your traditional kick and run off the gym walls. Games are five-aside and feature four players and a goalkeeper with quick substitutions done on the fly. All games are 25 minute halves and take about one hour. Players typically meet for a post game social for food and drinks at Boston Pizza.
Opening night for the season will be Tuesday, Oct 22 with the league running right up until its playoff championship game in March. United Carpet featuring a team made primarily of School District 27 teachers has been the standard of the league winning the past five playoff championships. This year it will be up Windsor Plywood, Celtic Engineering and Storm to try to prevent them from a sixth straight title.
Cost is $80 entry fee for the season which features approximately 20 games. Registration forms can be picked up and dropped off along with cash or cheque at Celtic Engineering located at 19 1st Ave. North. For information visit the website at www.wlsoccer.net
