30 Something Women’s Soccer returning

Sign-up for second season of play goes March 13 and March 21

 

 

Calling all women who love soccer, dreamed of playing soccer, or once dabbled in the sport – the second annual 30 Something Women’s Soccer season starts mid April, and registration is being held Wednesday, March 13 and Thursday, March 21.

Lora Paul and Lisa Walwork, who jointly established the league, recognized the sport’s popularity in the Comox Valley, and saw a casual women’s league as a logical fit to add to the mix. “We wanted to create a league that would attract a range of skills; from those who have played for years, to those who had never played, and offer a venue to enjoy the sport in a fun, social environment,” said Paul.

The inaugural season did just that, seeing over 60 players register. “The diversity of players who signed up was amazing, and the result was a great group of mixed skilled players enjoying the sport,” said Walwork.

With only one game a week, the league lends itself to the busy lifestyle of most women. “Games run an hour and a half each Wednesday. The majority of the ladies who signed up the first year either worked full time, and/or had families and full plates. This provides them the opportunity to get out onto the field, have some fun and  get some exercise, with it not being a major time commitment,” said Paul.

The season runs April 17 to June 19, with 7-aside games each Wednesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the lower Mark Isfeld field. Registration is $40 and will be held at the Comox Valley United Soccer Club Clubhouse, 1701 Lerwick Rd. (by Valley View Elementary), March 13, 5:30-6:30 p.m. and March 21, 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
