The cost of registering a child for the Kamloops Youth Soccer Association’s house leagues will be increasing soon.
Early deadline for the 2013 season ends Saturday. After that, a $25 late fee will be added to the registration fees, and requests to have children play on specific teams may not be fulfilled.
Mini-soccer (Under-5 to U10) costs $175 per player (before Saturday’s deadline), while the cost for youth (U11-U18) is $195.
Registration can be done online (www.kysa.net) or through KYSA’s office on McArthur Island.
The office will feature extended hours this week, but will be off Monday. It will be open Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Wednesday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. It also will be open Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
More than 3,300 players were in KYSA house leagues last season, and 300 played rep.
The youth season is scheduled to start in April.
