The deadline for children to register for the Shinnston Soccer Association is Feb. 28. The association has leagues available for those born between 2008 and 2018.
“We are a recreational league, so there are no try-outs, and we welcome all skill levels in all age groups, even kids who have never touched a ball before,” said Wendy Spurling, association registrar.
Teams can expect to practice and play roughly three times a week from mid-March to early June. The home fields are at Nuzum’s Trucking.
In-person registration will be held at School Square, near the old Fox’s Pizza, on Feb. 12 from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. For those needing equipment, the association provides gently used cleats and shin guards at the registration event. Registration fees vary by age, with discounts available for multiple children.

“We are also always looking for coaching volunteers for all age groups, and sponsors for our teams,” Spurling said. “Message us for details about those opportunities.”
