Soccer teams from Kindersley were in Saskatoon this past weekend to start their 2018 summer schedule.

Five teams played at the Lakewood Kickstart Tournament at their respective age divisions. This weekend, the Kindersley Storm featured U9 co-ed, U11 boys, U13 co-ed, U15 and U17 combined girls team, and a U15 and U17 combined boys team. It was the first taste of competitive soccer for the players who are gearing up for a busy schedule in the coming weeks.

Darin Wildman is the President of the Kindersley Soccer Association and is helping coach a couple of the squads this summer. He said it was a great way to start the new season, giving players a chance to warm up for their upcoming matches.

"Coming up next will be the Aurora Harder Avalon Tournament during the first weekend of June. I'm pretty sure all five of our teams will be there competing," said Wildman. "Then we're planning to have friendlies in Kindersley with all of our teams the weekend of the 9th to 10th."

The Harder Avalon Tournament won't be the only chance for matchups against teams from other communities.

"The 16th and 17th [of June] we'll be doing our house league windup where we're planning on having friendlies and having teams come in for that as well," said Wildman. "We're looking at Saskatoon, Swift Current, maybe North Battleford."

Besides the outside competitors coming to town next month, some of the teams play against each other and Rosetown teams during the week. Every Thursday, teams will travel from either Rosetown or Kindersley to play against each other.

Tuesdays feature Storm teams playing each other at Rotary Field, the field at Alliance Church or the Elizabeth Middle School field.

Since there is a large number of games coming up for the club, they'll be relying on volunteers both within and outside of the organization to help prepare the fields for game time.

"With all the different age groups we have, the fields change sizes anywhere from quarter to full-length fields, depending on the age group," explained Wildman. "Setting up fields, helping out with corner flags, maybe some line painting. Just to make everything run smoothly during the day."

He also extended an invitation to the community to come check out Storm games throughout the season.

It's a big season coming up for the Kindersley Storm as soccer continues to grow in the region and throughout the province.
