Be sure to sign kindergarten-aged kids up for Sharkey's Outdoor Soccer this spring. Soccer starts March 28 and runs through May 6. Practices are from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
“The games are fun and the practices help build teamwork and basic soccer skills,” said Kyle Mills, Athletics Supervisor.
The rules, field, ball and goal are modified to meet a kindergartener’s size and ability. “Everyone gets a t-shirt and everyone participates,” Mills added.
The games and practices are held at park district and school parks. Park assignments are on a first-come, first-served basis.
Register by March 16 for a special discount - $25 for residents and $37 for non-residents. Call (217) 367-1544 to register or online at urbanaparks.org/register.
“Soccer is a great game and we welcome kindergarteners of all abilities to come out and play this fall,” Mills concluded.
