The fall activity season in Wood River is just around the corner, with soccer registration now in progress. The Park & Recreation Department is coming off a disappointing season at the Aquatic Center, as Recreation Supervisor Jason Woody says the below normal temperatures took a bite out of attendance.
He says the annual triathlon was a success again, with about 470 pre-entries and good weather that day. The soccer registration is for the Lil Kickers instructional league, which is for 3 and 4 year olds, and the Tri-City Soccer League which is for kids age 5-13. That league was formed several years ago, encompassing Wood River, East Alton and Roxana.
