PRINCE GEORGE- Putting your kids through sports is expensive, from the registration fee to the equipment that needs to be replaced every season. That's why the Prince George Youth Soccer Association has set up a soccer swap, for families to swap out old cleats and shin guards for a larger size, or to simply loan equipment. "A lot of sports in Canada are noticing a big decline and one of the reasons cited is access to affordability for equipment and registering," said PGYSA President, Kerrie Secor, "this idea came about that not only could we provide resources to all families by swapping out old equipment for no cost, but also we offer a lender program."  The Association is hoping for donations of cleats and shin guards so they can offer more sizes. The service is free for families with children in PGYSA.
