GPS “Juniors” soccer

This program is designed especially for pre-school aged children 3-5 years old with the idea that children naturally want to have fun. What’s more natural than running around and kicking a ball? We’ll include age-appropriate games that will let them enjoy the game and learn basic skills without putting pressure on winning or competition. They’ll also learn to work cooperatively with other children. A great first experience. Program dates: Saturdays, Sept. 7 – Oct. 5. Times: 9–9:45 a.m. Fee: $70. Location: Shelburne Community School Fields. Registration deadline is Fri., Sept. 6 at noon.
