Indoor Soccer Coming Soon

The Moose Jaw Soccer Association is moving indoors. The indoor soccer league will get started once the Soccer Fieldhouse on the west side of the city opens it's doors.
Executive Director Jason Jones says the advantages for local players will be endless once the building opens, "To be able to have a facility that's indoor and that we can use basically seven months of the year for the indoor programming and then obviously, maybe do some stuff on rainy days and things like that for different age groups throughout the year, it's definitely going to help with the exposure of the game."
The facility will provide a safer place for players, who have been playing indoor soccer in gyms for years in Moose Jaw, to play.
Jones says there will be other big benefits as well, "You really want to see your team have as much enjoyment in the outdoor game as possible and being able to replicate that, just with the training environment that we will be able to provide and with the safety factors and the ball touches in a controlled environment similar to grass with this artificial turf, it's going to do wonders for our players first touch."
Jones adds that they have plans laid out and ready to go for the indoor soccer season, "We're going to offer a sixteen week indoor program for kids that are under-eight and above, all the way up to adult."
There will also be programs in place for Timbit and under-six players.
