Soccer registration for the spring, 2009, season is underway for youths playing on Imperial teams.
Registration forms are available at the city office, the school and Super Foods. They were also sent home this week with students in grades K-7.
Completed forms and the $25 registration fee should be returned to the city office by Feb. 13.
After that date, an additional $15 will be charged per player.
Imperial took part in a fall, 2008, soccer league, for the first time and youths registered for teams then do not have to pay the registration fee again for spring play, Kuhlmann noted.
Children will remain on the same teams as in the fall and will use their uniform from fall to prevent further fees.
Those who didn’t play in the fall will pay the full fee for spring, and be placed on existing teams until they are full. New teams will be formed if needed.
In the spring, five age levels are established for teams—U6 (age 4-5), U8 (age 6-7), U10 (ages 8-9), U14 (ages 10-13) and U19 (ages 14-19).
Practices will start the week of March 14, with season games running March 28 through May 4.
Kuhlmann said practices for the athletes on the U14 and U19 teams will be scheduled around the school’s track practices.
Parents with questions can contact Kuhlmann at 882-5824 or 882-0003.
