The morning of Saturday, September 8 marked the start of a new season at Jerseyville Parks and Recreation Department (JPRD). Youth co-ed fall soccer held its first games of the season at Dolan Park, located at 300 June Street, with 21 teams participating within four different divisions for a
grand total of nearly 300 players. The league hosts participants from five different counties; Calhoun, Greene, Jersey, Macoupin and Madison. The league is for participants in 1st through 8th grade and will run through October. Concessions are available during the games that include nachos,
soda, popcorn and everything in between. Registration is now open for the youth winter basketball leagues for 1st through 6th graders.
