The Henry County Youth Soccer Association will have registration this Saturday at the Henry County Library and Aug. 15 at the soccer pavilion at Harry Hill Park. Both registration dates will start at 9 .m. and last until noon.

The soccer organization is a recreational league that had 18 teams last year for players ranging from 4-12. The league is designed to teach kids at any age about soccer. It is held at Harry Hill Park but will eventually be moved to the new park in New Castle.


Starting this Thursday, the Henry County cross-country team will practice at Harry Hill Park following school. The team is open to elementary students from New Castle, Campbellsburg and Eastern, along with students at Henry County Middle School and Henry County High School. Practices will be held daily after school. The first meet is Sept. 5 with the season lasting until October for the younger runners and November for the high school runners.
