Youths kicks off soon

The much anticipated Cayman Islands Football Association Youth League is set to kick off on 2 November at the refurbished football fields throughout Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.

The age groups for the season’s competition will be as follows : Under 13 (players born January 1997 or after), Under 15 (players born January 1995 and after), Under 17 (players born January 1993 and after).

Matches will be played on weekday afternoons, Mondays and on Saturdays – in the mornings and occasionally before the senior league matches.

All teams from Grand Cayman will have to make arrangements to travel to the Brac for at least one away match during the season for each age group fielded, as all Cayman Brac home matches will be played on the Brac.

The venues this year include the T.E. McField (Annex ) field in George Town, Ed Bush stadium in West Bay, G. Haig Bodden Field in Bodden Town next to the civic centre, Northside Field, Donavan Rankine (East End) Field and Cayman Brac Bluff Field.

Registration for teams should be completed by 12 October and the registration fee of $250 per team should accompany forms.

Player registration should be completed by 23 October and all players are required to submit a photo ID with their registration form.

Forms should be submitted to the new the CIFA Office next to the Prospect School.

A complete schedule of games will be released after teams have registered and will be made available to all clubs and through the media.

Anyone requiring further information may contact the CIFA Office 949-5775.
