The rep season officially kicks off for Nelson Youth Soccer teams as the local association plays host to the annual Terry Walgren Girl’s Tournament this weekend at the Lakeside Facility.

The 18-team tournament, which some years has exceeded 25-plus teams, begins the rep season for most Nelson teams.

During the Easter Weekend some local teams ventured to the Central Okanagan for the Icebreaker tourney.

The tournament hosts four divisions of competition — U11, U12, U13, U14, U15 and U16.

A single game is on the schedule Friday — in the U16 division where two Nelson teams, U16 and U17 Selects meet at 5:30 p.m. All other divisions commence Saturday morning.

Each division plays a round robin draw with the playoff round set for Sunday.

Teams from Invermere, Kootenay South in Trail, Creston, Newport, WA., and Revelstoke join five teams from the host association in the three-day event.
