Sandlot Soccer Swim program underway
Now in its 10th consecutive year, Sandlot Soccer Swim is pure pickup soccer - no drills, laps, lecturing coaches, or whistle-happy refs. The kids choose their own teams, ref their own games and make their own rules. Everyone plays. After the game, players are invited to cool off in the pool at no charge. Soccer time and swim time are roughly equal. But like everything else, that's up to the kids.
Kids are divided into two groups by age - grades three through five (school year 2013-2014) and grades six through eight. In the spirit of sandlot play, there is flexibility on most issues including age, grade, attendance, coed teams (or not). As an example, younger/older siblings can play with permission from the onsite adult supervisor. Complimentary tee shirts will be provided while supplies last.
