Fall soccer sign-ups offered this week

Fall soccer signups for pre-K through eighth grades are scheduled this week, 5:30-7 p.m. Aug. 16 at GEMS, 5:30-7 p.m. Aug. 17 at Cash and Carry Foods, and at the Idaho County Fair Wednesday through Saturday, Aug. 16-19, through Tara Connolley, who will have paperwork at the fair. Practices and games are local.

“We depend on parents to sign up as coaches, assistant coaches, team organizers and field managers when you sign up your child,” Connolley said. “Your players will need soccer cleats, shin guards and a ball.”

Practices start Aug. 28 and the season will finish up before Oct. 10, the opening day of hunting season.

“Several coaches are firefighters so the rest of us need to fill the gap until they can get out of the woods,” Connolley added.

A coaches meeting is scheduled at 7 p.m. Aug. 27 at Lions Park.

“We are going to kick the ball around, share a few drills and go over juggle club,” Connolley said.

Squires to be honored Sept. 1; KHS sports complex to be named

KAMIAH — The Kubs are planning to name the high school sports facility — including the football field, track, and softball field — the Bob Squires Sports Complex in honor of the man who has helped advance KHS athletics since 1965.

The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 1, before the Kamiah football game that night, Greg Johnson told the Free Press Tuesday, Aug. 15.

“He started the Kamiah Invitational, the Kamiah Games and the Lewis and Clark Invitational, all of these meets saw participants from as far away as McCall or Kellogg, and they were a great draw not only to the school but also to the community,” Johnson explained. “You will find Bob in the announcer’s booth with a headset helping the head football coach during football, and in the spring he is working with the track team perfecting hurdles, jumps or starting technique.”

The Kubs’ football season kicks off at 7 p.m. Sept. 1 against Valley.

All winners have been contacted. State law prohibits Fish and Game from releasing the names of the winners.

Winners can participate in any open hunt in the state for deer, elk, pronghorn or moose, including general hunts and controlled hunts, in addition to any general season or controlled hunt tags they also hold. All other rules of individual hunts apply.

More than $164,000.00 was raised in this Super Hunt drawing. Proceeds benefit the Access Yes! Program, which supports landowners who provide hunter and angler access to or across private land.
