Imperial soccer sign-up underway; deadline Feb. 12 PDF Print E-mail

Youths in Imperial wanting to take part in the city’s spring soccer league need to get registered now.
Registration forms were scheduled to be sent home Monday with K-6 students at Chase County Schools. Additional forms are also available at the school office for grade 7-12 students or the city office.
Coordinator Shannon Kuhlmann said registrations will be taken until Feb. 12. After that date, a $20 late charge per player will be assessed, and there is no guarantee of being placed on a team, she said.
Teams will be set up in the following age divisions—U-6 (age 4-5), U-8 (age 6-7), U-10 (age 8-9), U-14 (age 10-14) and U-19 (age 14-19).
Kuhlmann said they will try to schedule practices and games for the U-14 and U-19 teams around the school track programs so as not to conflict.
The U-6 through U-14 teams play on Saturdays, while the U-19 teams are scheduled for Monday night games.
Those who are registering children for the first time in the soccer program need to attach a photocopy of the child’s birth certificate with the registration.
The $30 registration fee includes a team shirt, socks and insurance, Kuhlmann said.
Parents registering multiple children in the program will save some money after the third child from the same family joins the program.
Imperial competes in the Great Plains Soccer League.
Help needed
Kuhlmann said the program needs a lot of help from volunteers to serve as coach coordinators, ref coordinators, coaches, referees and field coordinators.
