Parents and Kids Soccer (PAKS)
|SPRING 2014 SEASON|
PAKS is our response to the many parents who have asked if they can enroll their 3&4-year-olds in our U6 Recreation program. While we believe it is too early for these kids to be placed on teams and play competitively, we understand that there are many younger players who can't wait to get out and play soccer. New this season we are opening our PAKS up to Children 3 years old & adding OPTIMIST YOUTH SPORTS COMPLEX FOR SPRING SEASON ONLY.
"Parents and Kids in Soccer" (PAKS) bridges the gap between wanting to play but being too young to play on a team. Instead, the player and at least one of his or her parents play fun activities and games together in a group environment, developing balance, coordination, kinetic awareness, and a love for the game. There are no practices, no scheduled games and no leagues in PAKS.
The fall and spring PAKS programs run parallel to our Recreation program. The one-hour sessions are all on Saturdays at the same game sites as the Recreation program, and parents may choose which session they attend on a drop-in basis. Players will be givien a ball & T-shirt. Both players and parents should come prepared to play.
*Game Site & Times
(Subject to change due to participation numbers. For example, we may have one session at Simplot at 10:00am, as opposed to two time slots. We may also combine Lewis & Clark & Simplot at one location due to participation numbers).
(Optimist Youth Sports Complex location is for the spring seasons only.)
