Registration for Upper Milford Youth Association’s Kindersoccer program is officially closed, but since there are some extra uniforms, 4- and 5-year-old boys and girls can still sign up to play.
Coordinator Kathy Nowroozani says, "To my knowledge we have never turned a child away."
So far 45 children have signed up to play at with a crew of all rookie coaches. Nowroozani will be guiding the coaches as much as possible but they’re encouraged to Google practice ideas.
Basic ball handling skills are taught while players learn to work together as a team. Soccer rules are emphasized as the season progresses, but the focus for this age group is primarily fun.
Co-ed practice and games are Wednesday nights starting after Labor Day and continue until the end of October. The first half hour is practice on half a field; the second half hour is a game on the entire field.
Nowroozani says, "I became involved with Kindersoccer because I believe there is no organization greater than UMYA. The parents are supportive and the kids are good sports. You really can’t ask for more than what UMYA has to offer."
