With more than 65 students signed up from Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School to participate this season, the Port St. Joe soccer programs continue their rapid growth over the past seven years.

As of this week, the boys’ and girls’ teams were practicing – the girls began Oct. 8; the boys Oct. 15 – with more than 30 players apiece.

The Lady Tiger Sharks host a preseason jamboree this weekend.

On Friday, Crestview will play Mosley at 6 p.m. ET followed by Port St. Joe versus Bay at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, Crestview will play Bay at 2 p.m., Mosley will play Port St. Joe at 4 p.m. and Port St. Joe will play Crestview at 6 p.m.

All games will be at the Sam Cox Field soccer complex.

Coach Gary Hindley begins his fourth year at the reins of the program. Hindley has a record of 42-37-8 and his teams have one three boys’ and one girls’ district titles and one boys regional championship.

"The Port St Joe Youth Soccer League and its coaches and especially Mike Lacour (and his predecessors, the Drs. Tom and Elizabeth Curry) as its administrator, have been instrumental in the awareness and interest shown in the sport,” Hindley said in talking about increased participation in soccer at the middle school and high school levels.
