2016 Soccer Games are coming

Messages from our soccer coach:

U-6 Team:
– A short “get to know you” practice at 3pm on Sunday May 1st at the Grosvenor Park field
– First game is Tuesday May 3rd at Grosvenor Park field 2 against the arch rival Nutana Running Carrots.

A few boiler plate statements:
-for games and practices all players must have a responsible adult at the park with them. If you are leaving your player in the care of another parent, let me know.
-there are often no bathroom facilities at the parks we play at so try to plan ahead
-I strongly suggest players wear shin guards. There is a wide range of sizes and abilities in U6 and shin guards can save a few tears. Soccer shoes or runners can be worn.
-the emphasis is on fun. If there is anything I can do to make your child more comfortable please let me know.

The schedule can be found here:
