5/11/13 – Game on! Fields are wet but open.
During the Spring 2013 season, Kindergarten Soccer will field two leagues: a kindergarten league, for all children who currently attend kindergarten in Newton, and a pre-K league, for children who will attend kindergarten in Newton in the fall of 2013. The program is an introduction to soccer and the focus will be on fun and developing confidence. Each session will include drills and a scrimmage.
Kindergarten Soccer will meet on 8 Saturday mornings from April 6 through June 8 (no games on April 20 or May 25) at Richardson Field, located between Beethoven and Allen Avenues. June 15 is reserved for a rain date. A few games are also played at Zervas Elementary School on Beethoven Ave. A few days prior to the first game, you will be contacted by one of your child’s coaches regarding the exact location of your child’s first game.
The kindergarten league will play from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. The pre-K league will play from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Children must be accompanied by an adult – this is not a drop-off program. Kindergarten Soccer is run by parent volunteers and we need parents to help as coaches and assistant coaches. No previous knowledge of soccer is required. So if you are interested in signing up your child, consider signing up yourself as well!
The fee for Kindergarten Soccer is $70. (Financial assistance is available and is confidential – please email us at email@example.com.) Your child will receive a team t-shirt and a medal or trophy at the end of the program. Every child must bring a size 3 soccer ball and wear shin guards each week. You may order this equipment through our program.
The deadline to submit your registration is March 22, 2013. After this date, you may still register your child if space is available; a $20 late fee will apply. Enrollment is limited and handled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you need to withdraw your child, a refund (minus a $10 administrative fee) will be provided until April 13, 2013.
