WORCA looking for a 20 th anniversary logo

The Whistler Off Road Cycling Association turned 20 a month ago, and WORCA is celebrating the anniversary through the season. One component of the celebration is an anniversary bike jersey.

WORCA is currently holding a contest to design the jersey. Designs must be one colour, and should be visible on black, grey and red shirts. The design will likely be printed in black, grey, white and possibly red.

The design must fit the dimensions indicated on the PDF information sheet posted onine at www.worca.com. You don't have to incorporate the WORCA logo, but it should mention WORCA and the fact it's the 20 th anniversary. Designs should be submitted as PDFs, but other formats can be accepted as well.

The prize for the best design, as selected by the board of directors, is a free shirt, a WORCA membership and $75.

Designs should be submitted to tracy_howlett@hotmail.com by May 4, 2009. The winning design will be selected at the May 6 board meeting, and the winners will be announced that week. The shirts will be available in early June.

Youth soccer gets underway

The Whistler Youth Soccer Club is already hosting indoor practices, and outdoor practices for the Pemberton Youth Soccer Club get underway on April 14. The first games in the Green River League begin on Saturday, May 2.

Spaces have opened up in both clubs since the fall session, and teams are looking for players. To register for Whistler visit www.whistlersoccer.com. For Pemberton, contact league administrator Bettina Falloon at 604-894-6130.

Registration is also underway for the Vancouver Whitecaps "Play like a Pro" camp on April 18-19. Early registration is recommended as the camp is expected to sell out early. Whistler players can register at their homepage, and Pemberton players can register at www.hometeamsonline.com/pembertonsoccer. Registration for summer sports camps is open as well.

And as always, the league is looking for qualified referees to help out. The clubs are offering a "Small Side Referee Course" on April 25 that covers the basics. Referees get paid for games. Contact Bettina Falloon or Angela Mellor at 604-938-0209 to register.

Coaches are also in demand. For parents looking to get involved the clubs are hosting a level one coaching course in Pemberton on April 18. The Community Coach Children's course is specifically tailored to coaches working with kids aged 6-10. Details at www.whistlersoccer.com.
