Rimbey Soccer Association is on the lookout for volunteers.

Spokesperson Jacy Anderson said the success of the association is dependent on volunteers and they seem to be in short supply. While there is an abundance of soccer players in Rimbey, volunteers are not stepping forward to help balance the scales.

“It (the association) is totally dependent on volunteers,” she said. “We need coaches and board members. Referees are also needed, but those positions are paid,” she added.

Board members have various roles including sitting on the executive, helping with registration, and working with the Central Alberta Soccer Association.

Last year there were six competitive teams and three age groups of house league teams, said Anderson.

The season, which ran from April to June, was available for players ages four to 18.
