End of season

The Aberdeen Mall-sponsored Errol Wild festival, for boys and girls in the U4 to U12 divisions, will be played on fields across the city.

Wild was one of Kamloops’ most dedicated volunteers. He was also a mentor to many up-and-coming young players.

He died in 2009 at the age of 49.

A fall program is being offered to players in the U4 to U12 age groups. Early-bird registration deadline is July 1.
