Barriere Youth Soccer’s 2015 spring season was a great success, with 132 soccer players ages four to 13 years, 17 coaches and countless volunteers helping to take photographs, bring healthy snacks, set-up and take down soccer equipment, organize and hand-out/collect soccer jerseys, make gatorade for players, referee soccer matches, help with registration, help with communications, help with fundraising, etc, etc….

The association greatly appreciates everyone for participating, and say everyone helps because “the kids are worth it!”.

The Barriere AG Foods May Community Rewards fundraising event raised over $3000 for this group.

Barriere Youth Soccer collaborated through the season with Clearwater Youth Soccer for game play and a fun-filled year-end tournament, there was great skill development seen by all.

The association says they are now planning for Spring 2016  for U4 to U13 (unless many people want more), and they are looking to play against more clubs for U7 to U13 players.

The group is also looking for volunteers to take on roles such as; coaches (coaching course is given), team manager, jersey manager, marketing, fundraising, referee manager and/or refereeing (courses are available for new referees), making gatorade, festival/tournament planner, etc.
