Register for youth soccer

The Plant City Recreation and Parks Department/Optimist Club’s youth soccer league is accepting registrations for its 2018 season.

The league, open to boys and girls age 4 through 18 (as of June 1, 2018), hosts games on Saturdays and Tuesdays at the Otis M. Andrews Sports Complex, 2402 E. Cherry St. Teams are organized by age and gender into 11 groups and, with the exception of the 4, 5 and 15-18 groups, they practice once per week at most. Last season, the league’s 41st, roughly 1,300 youths played in the league.

Families have until Feb. 7 to sign their children up for the season, which runs from March 20 through May 24. Call-outs for team assignments will happen from Feb. 20 through 22. The cost to sign up is $35 per child, which includes insurance. The PCRPD office accepts cash, checks, money orders and credit cards. Register in person at the office, 1904 S. Park Rd., from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, or by mail. A copy of the child’s birth certificate is required unless your child played in the 2017 season.
