As winter has hung on a little longer than necessary, it seems almost fitting that our community soccer program will be delayed as well. Weather in May is often unpredictable, but the real reason for the delay is that the two rectangular soccer pitches are scheduled for maintenance in the month of June and we cannot use the field at all during this time.
We have pre-booked the field for Wednesday evenings in July and August and are looking for coaches who would be willing to supervise a “Drop-In” program. We are anticipating one group of little kickers on the small field, ages 4-6, and a second group on the large field, ages 7-10. Similar to last year, this would be a non-competitive program, with the kids playing for fun.
Please get in touch with Grace Kuipers if you are interested in helping out at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look in the June issue of the paper for registration and further notice.
