The Superior-Douglas County Family YMCA with be holding two soccer programs for children.
Little Nerf Kicker Soccer is a progressive indoor soccer program for children entering kindergarten in fall 2008 through second grade. Using indoor Nerf soccer balls, children will have the opportunity to learn about the game of soccer.
Sessions will be split into skill development, lead-up games and mini games. The emphasis is not on game play but learning basic soccer skills, with the help of volunteer parents.
On Feb. 16 all players should report to the gym at 9 a.m.
Also available is the youth indoor soccer program. Players are split into two divisions: third through fourth grade and fifth through sixth grade.
The 5-on-5 play will use the basketball court lines as boundaries. Teamwork and ball control will be emphasized, with the help of volunteer parents. Teams will be small to promote player development.
On Feb. 16 all players should report to the gym at 10:30 a.m.
Both programs run from Feb. 16 to April 5 on Saturday mornings. The cost for YMCA members is $37 and $57 for non-members.
