The fields are alive with the sounds of roundball players

Sometimes the soccer boots win out in some of those collisions with the shin guards as this player experienced during the U10 Boys action Saturday at the Lakeside Pitch.

 Let the second half begin.

The fields at Lakeside once again have gone from dormant to a beehive of activity as Nelson Youth Soccer kicked off its second half of the 2010 House League season.

Nelson Youth Soccer, boasting the largest registration players of all the minor sports groups in the Heritage City, concluded the summer hiatus with games and practices in all age groups last week.

Saturday, of course, was the traditional Soccer Saturday with all of the mini players seeing action at the older Lakeside Pitch.

The fall season concludes in early October with playoffs in most divisions.

The U12 and U 14 girl’s championship matches are set for Thursday, September 30 while the U12 and U14 boy’s title game go Saturday, October 2.

Both U17 finals will be played Monday, October 4.

All games are set for the Lakeside Pitch.

To wrap up the season Nelson Youth Soccer executive is hosting the Fabulous Italian Feast Banquet on Wednesday, October 6. There are two meal gatherings — U10 and U12 divisions are up first followed by U14 and U17 teams.

The NYS annual general meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 13 at 7 p.m. in the Baker Street Best Western.

This is an opportunity for parents and players to shape the future of youth soccer in Nelson.
