Fall Soccer for youth in grades K-2 -UPDATE-8/7/17-

For the past few years, we have hired coaches from the British Soccer program to run our youth soccer program in the spring and the fall. They have done a great job but they are having a hard time with the visa process. They cannot accommodate our program this fall. Due to the late notice, we are looking for the following:  2-3 people interested in coaching youth soccer on a weekday from 3:15-4:15 and 4:30-5:30 from Sept. 11-Oct. 23. The day of the week is TBD (based on the coach’s availability), M-Th, and coaching the games on Saturdays between 12-4 pm. We pay an hourly rate for coaches.  We welcome all parents, college students, community members, etc.!

In order to get registration started, we need to hear from anyone who is interested ASAP!

Basketball Skill Clinics are being planned for November and December for boys and girls in grades K-3.  If you are interested in coaching on a weekday from 3:20-4:30, please call the Rec. Dept at (860) 873-5058 to discuss these opportunities
