Sport: An activity requiring physical ability, physical fitness, or technique and strategy in which usually, but not always, involves competition between two or more people

Importance of sports in your child's life:

Where else can a young, impressionable youth learn values like discipline, responsibility, self confidence, sacrifice, leadership and determination?   Yes, as parents we try to instill these values in our children but it is much more effective if they are learning as they are having fun.  Sports, in an invisible way, will teach your child each of these extremely valuable principles.  

Most importantly your children learn what it is to have fun and how it feels to be successful.

PeeWee Soccer is you child's first introduction to the sport. Cost will be about 60.00 - 75.00 dollars.
