Ridgeway Council approves soccer at Ridgeway Park

RIDGEWAY – Soccer is coming to Ridgeway.

At its July meeting, the Ridgeway Town Council unanimously approved a proposal to rent out the Ridgeway Park ball field on N Means Street to the three-year-old, Blythewood Soccer Club. Blythewood Soccer Club representative Frank Cahoon explained that the eight-week program would include children born from 2011 to 2018 and would offer weekly practices and a Saturday game.

The club uses Coerver Carolina for technical training for volunteer coaches.

“We now have kids from Ridgeway playing with on our Blythewood teams, and with the continued growth of the sport in Blythewood, we have a significant need for additional field space,” Cahoon said. “So it just seems like a natural progression to offer soccer in Ridgeway.”

Blythewood Soccer serves Richland, Fairfield and Kershaw counties.

“We are always looking for volunteer coaches and others to help with the program,” Cahoon said. “We also encourage parents and friends of players to come out and cheer them on.”

Registration online (at BlythewoodSoccerClub.com) is open now through Sunday, Aug. 28 for recreation level juniors developmental soccer in Blythewood and Ridgeway. Cost is $100. Practices begin the week of Aug. 29; first games will be Friday, Sept. 2.
