Entering their third year, the Boundary Soccer league is getting underway this month offering many ways for parents and youth to get involved.

K4K is a program designed for 2- and 3-year-olds, a drop in program to give these young uns an introduction to soccer, it is cost free to the user, and will be offered Sunday mid-mornings at soccer venues, explained Jeff Olson one of the volunteers for the league.

Each event will last about one hour depending on the turnout and engaged interest of the participants, trained coaches will offer a variety of games for the kids that involve soccer and the very basic skills associated with the game, the overall emphasis will be fun, Olson added.

The value of this program is multi fold and benefits everyone from the player to the community at large when viewed from a long term perspective.

At this time we have everything in place but are still in need of some volunteers to assist with the events.

“Having coaches in each area of the Boundary will ensure the program is a success and all kids who have an interest will be offered the opportunity to participate,” said Olson. “Right now there only three of us, which is three more than we had a week ago but a few more to help out is what is needed.”

A coach training program is scheduled for Saturday, Apr. 14 for two to three hours in the afternoon. Th/e program will give each person all and more of the tools they will need to make this program work, and to ensure they have fun as well while delivering it.

So if you are, or know of a person who is interested in being at the start of a child’s introduction into sport and health, contact Olson back through boundarysoccer@gmail.com or call 443-9199.

If you are unable to be a part of this right now, please keep the program in mind and pass the word to those families with young ones.
