BCRD offers fall youth soccer programs

New: Boys’ and girls’ programs to be separated

     Boys and girls of all abilities are welcome to join the Blaine County Recreation District’s fall youth soccer program for ages 3-5 and all the way up to the sixth grade. Sign-ups are underway, online.

     In a change of format, programs for kids in grade 1-6 are now separated by gender, “to provide a better experience for youth participants,” the BCRD stated on its promotional material.

     The Hailey-based program is now divided into three areas: Soccer for Kindergarten/5-year-old, Youth Soccer for boys in grades 1-6, and Youth Soccer for girls in grades 1-6.

     Online ( and in-person registrations are being accepted.

     For most programs, coaches and sponsors are still needed. Contact Brad Musbach at 578-5458 or email him at

     BCRD Sports and League coordinator Musbach reminded parents that if they’re interested in having their child play in Ketchum, they should contact Ketchum Parks and Recreation at 726-7820.

     Hailey program descriptions for this fall are the following:

       · Soccer for Kindergarten/5-year-olds meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from Sept. 18-Oct. 21, from 5:15-6 p.m. at Nelson Field. It is a clinic-style program for soccer development. There will be no teams.

       Cost is $60 online, $65 at the BCRD office or $75 if paid after Thursday, Sept. 18. Participants should just meet at Nelson Field. They won’t be contacted by a coach.

       · Youth Soccer for girls and Youth Soccer for boys, in grades 1-6. The details are identical for this year’s separate programs.

       Both feature coaches and a fall game schedule. Practices are held at these Hailey fields: Nelson, Cutters, Foxmoor, Keefer and Woodside.

       Games will be held on six Saturdays between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at either Nelson Field in Hailey or Atkinson Park in Ketchum. The six Saturdays are Sept. 20 and 27, and Oct. 4, 11, 18 and 25.

       Each team practices twice a week for one hour each time the team meets. Practices starting the week of Sept.15-16 are Monday or Wednesday between the hours of 4-7 p.m., or Tuesday and Thursday.
