Pictou County Athletics to hold early registration

STELLARTON – Pictou County Athletics (PCA) will hold early registration for its 2019 membership Nov. 28 at the Pictou County Wellness Center.

It will be from 7-9 p.m.

PCA’s 13+ program begins on Jan. 2 at the YMCA, the other practice days are Fridays at the indoor soccer facility and Sundays afternoons at NNEC.

Those who register for PCA on Nov. 28 will have their name put in for a draw on a PCA team jacket.

Team fees are $335 for a full year (January to mid- August) and $195 for winter (January to April 1). Both fees include Athletics NS fee of $75 which is necessary for insurance coverage. Also, a one month trial membership will be offered for anyone and the fees are $115 which includes the ANS fee of $75. If the athlete wishes to continue the amount will go towards full or winter membership fees. For the early registration, a 50 per cent deposit will be accepted with the remaining fees due on Jan. 2.

PCA has been in operation for the past 7 years and has made great strides in club development and individual successes. Athletics (or track and field) is also well known for being an excellent cross training sport.

Other programs offered by PCA are the Trailblazers (ages 9 to 12), Masters ages (35+). Both of these programs start Jan. 4 and early registration will happen at the same time as the 13+ program. For more details on these two programs, visit the PCA website:
