The Borderland Soccer League season is set to kick off next week but could use more people to sign up.
Due to the low numbers, the league will be going with two women’s and three men’s teams this season.
It also has decided to waive the $25 late fee in hopes of getting more participants to register.
If you’re interested, visit the Borderland Soccer League Facebook page and register by clicking the men’s or women’s link and you will be put on a team.
Women will be playing on Tuesday while the men’s games will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Team reps will be given all information shortly and they will be in touch with you.
Schedules and rosters also will be posted shortly.
