There will be something for everyone who is looking to get out and get involved with the world’s most popular sport.

With spring in the air, registration for adult soccer leagues is fast approaching for a men’s league and a mixed league in Cranbrook.

The men’s league plays on the Mount Baker Secondary School soccer field and usually features three to five teams.

Players range from college-level athletes to those just looking to have fun in a competitive environment.

“It’s always a good time,” said AJ Wheaton, one of the organizers for the men’s league. “We’re always looking for players who want to come out and play some soccer that’s a little more competitive than your average kick-around.”

Depending on numbers from player registration, there could be anywhere from three to five teams, including one from Kimberley. Players from the mens league also form a Cranbrook team and attend tournaments around the region and in the U.S.

Registration forms are available at Players Bench.

If your more interested in having some fun in a non-competitive environment, then mixed league may be more up your alley.

Mixed league, a co-ed league for all abilities that plays a few times a week up in Moir Park, usually includes four to six teams of 15-20 players.

The cost is $80 for mixed league and final registration will be at Laurie Middle School on Wednesday, April 8, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
