Registration Open for Spring Soccer

Registration Open for Spring Soccer

(Crystal A. Proxmire, 2/16/2011)

Spring is in the air and Ferndale Recreation is ready to launch one of it’s most popular team activities, soccer!  The Little Kickers league is for toddlers through three years old.  Then there are teams for Under 6, Under 8, and Under 10.  The coaches and referees are volunteers, mainly parents.

Prices range from $50-$75,  based on age,with a discount for returning players who can use their old uniform. The season runs from March 28, 2011 to May 14, 2011, with practice twice a week and games typically on Saturdays.  Sign up at http://www.ferndalerecreation.org/Search.aspx?search=soccer&mode=all.

Jill Stricker of Ferndale Recreation organizes the league and does the scheduling for all area teams.  All practices and games are played on local fields including the Dream Field at Martin Road Park.  The Field was the dream of long time Ferndale resident Nelson House, who started the original Dream Cruise to fund the soccer fields for the kids.  To read about the origins of the Field and the Dream Cruise, check out our previous article – http://oaklandcounty115.com/2010/08/16/nelsonhouse/.

Last year there were 16 teams in Ferndale with a total of 130 players.  The teams play against each other as well as teams from Oak Park, Pleasant Ridge and Hazel Park

Last fall a Ferndale 115 News photographer caught several teams playing, including the Ferndale Recreation Tigers, the Ferndale Red Robins, the Oak Park Cardinals and the Oak Park Dragons.
