Time is running out to register for Nelson Youth Soccer.

Making the best of spring snow in Nelson

Rain at city level quite often means snow up at the hill.

Rain at city level quite often means snow up at the hill. And rumour has it there is still a lot of snow on the slopes. So enjoy it while it lasts and at least for the remainder of spring break.


The Whitewater Ski Team is hosting the East and West Kootenay Zone Finals on March 24 and 25. This is the final alpine ski race of the season for skiers ages 11-16 at E2, K and J levels. They will race slalom and GS on Bonanza. It’s a two-day event with skiers coming from Red Mountain, Kimberley, Fernie and Windermere and of course our own Whitewater Ski Team is hosting.


Wet weather also brings to mind wet grass and soccer fields lined by parents wielding giant sized umbrellas. So while you dig out the rubber boots and raincoats make sure you have registered the kids. Yes! The Nelson Youth Soccer house soccer deadline is past but registrations are still being accepted in most divisions. Please go to nys.ca to register. Fee now is $130.


If dry and warm activities are more your thing try Nelson Rhythmic Gymnastics. Their spring session starts soon and runs March 26 to June 4. Programs are offered for girls and women in Nelson and Balfour areas. Try some new moves with ribbons, hoops, balls, scarves and so much more! Call Giselle at Rhythmic Dimensions 250-505-1812.


Celebrating its 11th year the Community Sport Hero Awards program recognizes coaches, officials, mentors and administrators who have dedicated themselves to amateur sport at the community level. Since its inception in 2001, 50 provincial sport organizations have honoured 447 sport volunteers in 39 different communities. In 2012, the Community Sport Hero Awards presented by Teck will make the rounds to eight communities one of which will be Nelson after a long absence.  Sport BC will be presenting these prestigious awards to recipients nominated by their community sports.

The nomination deadline is March 31,  so please make sure your group acknowledges your valued volunteers. They are what make our community the place we like to call home. Go to www.sportbc.com – programs and events, or call NRSC 352 3989.
