"Matt (Peabody Orcas 09B White) and Tony and I (4th - Peabody Orcas Boys) took our teams down there on April 20th for a scrimmage. Tony refereed but basically we just let the kids play. All the players had a wonderful time and it really reinforced for me how valuable it is to have the kids play soccer just for the love of playing. It seems that too many of the kids in the city are only playing during adult-led practices or in adult-coached games." - Heather

TEAM TIME HISTORY
"At first there were two parents+kids games going, then after one finished, we used the whole field and added some players from the other group that stuck around. ... These mixed-age pick-up style games are such a great way for younger players to develop. Thanks for organizing the Paul Goode space." - Dave (Grattan Hawks)
The clinics were introduced in 2016 to provide additional practice and play opportunities for team coaches and players that want to play even more. Most teams practice once, some twice.
In addition to individual player clinics, this is additional for teams to enjoy more time together and more time with the ball. All teams from SFYS Recreational, SF Upper House and SFYS Varsity are invited to join us on a date/time that suits their schedule.
The space is free and is part of #PlaySFYS
