NEW FLEXIBLE PRICING! LUSC Kindergarten through 4th Grade Sunday Pick-Up Soccer

Why Pick Up Soccer?  The idea behind pick up soccer is to provide kids the freedom to play soccer games in a supervised yet unstructured environment. The goal is to encourage them to be creative and take ownership of their game. The games will be played with 3 to 5 players on a side. This will allow players to maximize their touches on the ball and provide them with numerous opportunities to make decisions. Games will be 12 to 15 minutes long, and then the supervisor will remix the teams and start up a new game. There will be no coaching, just adult supervision. For the 3 sessions for $30 option, you can attend any 3 of the 5 sessions.

Dates: Sundays January 3, 24, 31 February 7, 14
Location: Lexington High School Field House
Cost: $30.00 per child for 3 sessions or $50 per child for 5 sessions
Capacity: 27 participants per hour
