Soccer is a fantastic sport to keep kids active and build community. We are pleased to announce a new partnership with the Mount Hope-Breithaupt Park Neighbourhood Association that links both community and soccer skills development. Teaching skills needed to enjoy the world's game while making connections in our neighbourhood. Come participate in this grassroots soccer program with new friends.
As a coaching team, we have decided to maintain the three divisions this year, 2-5s, 6-8s, and 8-12s. We will remain at Hillside Park, with the 2-5s, and 6-8s playing from 9-10 and the 8-12 year old kids playing from 10-11. You can register for the course on ActiveNet.2Y-4Y Saturday 9:00-10:00am: 20772
With the addition of our Thursday night program you can now also register 5-8 years old for both the Thursday night and Saturday morning schedules. The Thursday night sessions will be focused on small-sided games while Saturdays will be more focused on developing physical literacy.
5Y-8Y Thursday 6:00-7:00PM and Saturday 10:00-11:00am: 20770
Fee: $40.00/10 wks
Teaching kids on a smaller field with smaller nets makes each individual child the star of the show.
Games with fewer players and sSmaller fields also means kids have more time in contact with the soccer ball. We will also have unique skill based games, where each child will use their own soccer ball, for skills development.
We want to make the game fun. At the end of the day, if each player had a fun day, they will want to play again!
We are workin with the Mount Hope-Breithaupt Park neighbourhood association to bring community athletics.
A soccer game is a great hour-long opportunity for parents and kids to meet with neighbours and enjoy the outdoors. The location for our programs is still to be determined, but we are looking for fields near playgrounds so kids can play before and after the meet-ups.
We are also currently planning with fellow neighbourhood programs for an end of the year mini-soccer festival.
Like most community programs, we are completely and proudly volunteer organized and run. From our website to post-meetup cleanup, it is volunteers who drive this initiative.
Volunteers are at the core of what we do and we want to treat them well. We are very thankful for everyone who has volunteered their time to help make these days a success.
We are always looking for more passionate teammates. Contact us if your interested.
