Children within the Park summer season program bringing soccer to Saskatoon group – Saskatoon
For the past decade, soccer has been one of the fastest growing sports in Canada, especially among younger children.
A major reason for this is the low effort required, especially at the introductory level. All you need to get started is a ball and a place to play.
And that’s the premise behind Saskatoon Youth Soccer’s Kids In The Park summer soccer program.
The roots of the Red Sox are deep in the baseball-crazy village of Munster, Sask.
“We run it during the summer months,” said Amanda Probe, executive director of Saskatoon Youth Soccer.
“July and August, Monday to Friday, from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm. We drove to 47 different locations throughout the summer, i.e. 10 locations per day. We are at two locations every hour. “

Once again, O’Reilly Insurance and The Co-Operators are on board to sponsor the program for the 14th summer for free.
“When you look at the children playing behind me, you see the joy and smiles on their faces,” said Decan O’Reilly of O’Reilly Insurance. “And it’s something that you can go back home and get a soccer ball and play in your yard too.”

“It’s nice to see how many kids love to play soccer,” said program director Sierra Davey.
“Because I grew up with football and it was one of the fun things I was looking forward to and it’s nice to bring it back to the community.”
The football program welcomes all participants, big and small, and runs from July 5th to August 19th.
