It may still be a ways off, but it’s only a matter of time before the cleats and jerseys come out once again.

Registration for the Nelson Youth Soccer Association (NYSA) is now open for all children turning five-years-old in 2012 to those turning 18-years-old in 2012.

Those wishing to register for the 2012 season can do so online at or download and print a hardcopy of the registration for from the website and mail it in with the payment.

Players wishing to try out for rep teams must register by January 31, while those wishing to play in the house league must register by March 9.

Registration after the deadlines will cost more and be dependant on available space.

Sveta Tishma, registrar for the NYSA said that as a non-profit volunteer organization, the help of parents in different areas as volunteers is needed at this point.

“It’s run by really good people that care and want to provide good times for kids to grow and learn this beautiful game and make new friends,” said Tishma.

The long-time soccer player said that Nelson sees an average of about 1,000 memberships in the club, a high number considering the population of Nelson.

“You don’t need to really be that good to still have a good time,” he said.

“I’ve been playing soccer a lot since childhood and I just know what it does to you, so mentally and physically it’s very healthy.”
