The Woolwich Youth Soccer Club will be holding its soccer fun day Saturday in Breslau from 9-11 a.m. and at St. Teresa’s in Elmira from 1:30-4 p.m. for the active start junior and senior groups.
Active start is an introductory program for children 3-6 years of age. Organizers are aiming for a combined group of upmost 550 participants between the two locations.
Although the day is organized through WYS for participating teams, club vice-president Andrea Richards, says it is more about having the kids out for a fun day with their peers.
“We are going to have a bouncy castle, a dance party and face painting. It’s really just a fun day,” she says, noting that there will be a soccer component, but more non-formal soccer games such as kicking and shooting.
All three organized house leagues – active start, house league and the rural league – within the club had a delayed start this year due to the weather, but have been actively going strong since the week of May 15.
