**Spring 2019 Season begins Saturday, April 27!**
Garden City Kindergarten Soccer K and Pre-K Soccer offers two co-ed soccer programs during the Spring and Fall. Our K Soccer League is for children enrolled in Kindergarten during the current school year. Our Pre-K Soccer League is ideal for children between the ages of 4 and 5 years old. The program is open to all children in Newton (or surrounding communities) who are 4 years old by April 1st. GCKS is a non-profit program that makes significant contributions to various Newton PTOs. Children must be accompanied by an adult - this is not a drop-off program.
Our programs provide a fun and enjoyable introduction to the game of soccer. We focus on teaching a variety of basic skills while encouraging teamwork. Children will develop self-esteem and confidence in a non-competitive, nurturing environment. Team sizes are small, with a maximum of 10 players in each group. This format allows each child optimal time for on-field practice and game rotations. Space is limited to 80 children per League.

Children are required to bring their own Size 3 Soccer Ball and must wear shin guards each time they play. Please dress your child in appropriate sports attire based on the weather and season. Cleats are not required for this age group.
Parent Volunteers Needed
GCKS needs parent volunteers to serve as head coaches, assistant coaches, field set up assistants or information table staff in order to run this program. Our experienced soccer coaches will provide tips for coaches. No prior coaching experience is required. All you need to do is show up each week and have fun with your child(ren) and your team. You can sign up as a parent volunteer when you sign your child up for the program. PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF YOUR INTEREST, NAME, AND EMAIL CONTACT DURING REGISTRATION. It’s truly a fun and rewarding experience. Please contact us with any questions about volunteer opportunities.
