…As indoor soccer season ramps up

The Terrace Women’s Soccer Association is looking for new recruits for its indoor winter season.

The Terrace Women’s Soccer Association is looking for new recruits for its indoor winter season after wrapping up its outdoor summer season earlier this month.

League champs for outdoor was Back Eddy Pub. They won both the season and the playoffs.

“Our top goal scorers from the league were Megan Praticante from Janga Jungle and Alexa Grant from Back Eddy, both tied with 24 goals apiece,” said club organizer Nina Peden.

Aside from soccer, the TWSA participates in a number of community events – this year saw them participate in the Relay for Life, donating $1000 plus separate donations from team members. They also held a Christmas food drive within the league.

As far as goals for the future, Peden says the group hopes to have a full-fledged futsal league (futsal is five-a-side indoor soccer), facilities permitting.

“It’s a way better game,” she said.

The plan for this year’s indoor league is to play two nights a week at the Thornhill Jr. gym, which might prove to be more costly than previous years but will be well worth it.

The league is a rec league, open to players of all different skill levels.

“You have to start somewhere,” she said. “It’s a fun way to meet new friends, exercise and keep active.”

The group is encouraging players and interested parties to come out to the club’s annual general meeting on Oct. 2 in the multi-purpose room at the Terrace Sportsplex for more information and to register.

You can also contact Peden at 250-635-5480 or email brisar@citywest.ca or find TWSA on Facebook.
