Chicago Fire Soccer Camp
The 2016 Chicago Fire Soccer Camp is July 11th - 15th! Go to the Handouts tab for the official brochure with additional information.
On behalf of the Saint Joseph Soccer Club, I want to welcome you and your young player to the spring season of Kindergarten soccer! We will have a great 6 week session, gaining soccer knowledge, skills, and having fun.
The program is on Tuesdays, from 5:45-6:45pm and Saturdays from 11 am-12pm, on the football field(look for the football goal post) at Woodard Park.
Each Tuesday the first portion is skills training, followed by a break, then team development. Each Saturday will be game day and all games will start at 11 am.
Parent volunteers help make this a successful program - please consider helping, even if you don't know the game well - we all start somewhere! All the current coaches (from 1st to 8th graders) started coaching when their child was little, that's how we keep our program running.
Each week, bring your child ready to play in comfy, weather appropriate clothing with their jersey on the outside. For safety's sake, shin guards will be required, but soccer cleats are not necessary - regular athletic shoes will certainly work great (If you choose to wear cleats, they must be SOCCER cleats, the football and baseball/softball cleats have an extra cleat at the toe which make them forbidden on the soccer pitch). Labeled water bottles are also a good idea, since it is thirsty work on the field! Kindergartners use a size 3 ball. If you have one, you are welcome to bring it, but please make sure it has a name on it! If you don't have one, we have plenty to share.
The first Tuesday, April 12th, we will have a check in table set up about 5:30 pm. If this is your first season, this is also where you will pick up a jersey. I would encourage everyone to arrive a little early to check in so that we can begin skills training as close to 5:45 pm as possible.
Pictures are scheduled on Tuesday, April 19th at 5:45 pm at Woodard Park. We will have practice after pictures are done.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or any SJSC member. Please respond to this email so that I know you received it (and your child's name, so if only one parent responds, I know the info is getting out). Looking forward to a great season!
Thank you to everyone that signed up for the spring season.
