The snow is melting, the weather's warming, and we've got soccer on the mind! Embrace spring by signing up your little kicker for Hampshire Cooperative Nursery School's soccer program!
The HCNS Soccer Program is geared towards preschool-aged children ages 3-5 years old. (If your child is currently enrolled in Kindergarten, we highly recommend contacting your town's recreation department, as most have Kindergarten soccer programs.)
HCNS will be offering two different five-week sessions: a Wednesday afternoon session running April 26th through May 24 from 12:30-1:15 pm and a Saturday morning session running from April 29th through May 27 from 9:15-10:00 am.
Our goal is to make these soccer practices safe and fun for everyone. Practice is 45 minutes long and emphasizes fun and vigorous participation. Age and ability differences will be taken into consideration. We aim for a low ratio of coaches to players, which lets us tailor the experience to the child. If a player is ready to learn how to make a good pass, we help that player with passing technique. If a player is ready for the first time to let go of mom or dad's hand during the warm-up run, we help with that, too!
Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The soccer coordinator will email you to let you know if your child has secured a slot, and all participants will be contacted no later than five days in advance of the first soccer practice. If your registration is received after the roster has been filled, you will be notified via email and your check will be returned to you via mail.
Spread the word to your friends! All are welcome to join in the fun!
WE ARE IN NEED OF THREE VOLUNTEER ASSISTANT COACHES FOR BOTH THE WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY SESSIONS! The only qualification you need to help us coach is enthusiasm. Please email me if you or your spouse is interested. Each assistant coach may enroll one of their children for free! Coaching slots will be filled on a first come first served basis until we fill the available slots. All volunteer coaches need to arrive 10-15 minutes early to help head coaches setup up and stay 10-15 minutes after practice to help pick up as well.
I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Please don't hesitate to email me.
