The Kingfield Neighborhood is looking for coaches to help lead the Little Kids Soccer Program at M.L. King Park again this summer.  We work with 4-year-olds through 12-year-olds, and generally have 50 kids each Saturday.  The ten weeks of Saturdays, 9:30 to 11:30 AM, start June 13th and run through August 15th, 2015. 

We have two training sessions for the coaches and helpers; you can come to either one or both sessions. The information is presented by St. Thomas University Women’s Varsity Coach Sheila McGill.
Sunday, May 17th, 7 to 8:30 PM, and/or
Monday, May 18th, 7 to 8:30 PM.

Even if you can’t be there for all of the 10-week Saturday morning sessions, we’d still love to have you join in the fun and teaching with the games with a soccer ball.  We aim to have a cadre of 15 coaches for the summer, with 8 or 9 of them being at any given Saturday morning session.  If you can’t coach on the field, but want to help, we need some help also with coordination and organizing for the program as a whole, and some of the sessions on Saturdays as well.

If you are interested, please contact Michael at or call him at 612/296-9647.
