WHERE:
Field is in Crown Heights, not far from Utica Avenue, east of Prospect Park - easy to bike to or if you have a car, to park. Can take 3/4 trains to Utica.

COMMITMENT:
At least two sessions. We also need lead coaches, who can commit to at least 5 sessions.

Who are the kids?
Most children have never played soccer and some come back every season - so there's a variety of levels. This is a neighborhood with limited healthy options - to eat or get physically fit. So, you'll play a role in not only building teamwork, but empowering youth and families to get active. Have fun, play ball, make a difference. Attn, Students! Yes, we give community service credits. Recommendation letters given.Our program started in 2009 just to get kids active. Now, we want to expand a nascent league. Kids love it, but don't know the game so we need your help.
Can you play in a fundraising opening soccer game? We can schedule this fall.
SCHEDULE - Sept. 7 - Nov. 18, 2018 Special Open Field on:
Friday, Sept. 7 at 5 pm
Sunday, Sept. 9 from 4-7 pm
INFO: No coaching experience needed. Just love of the game and able to collaborate with others. Of course, we'd love it if you have experience... Practices are co-ed, and players range from 3 to 12 years old and are at beginner to intermediate level. If we have enough players, will create boys and girls only teams for ages 10 and up.. If you're self-motivated, love kids and are good with them, can handle the unexpected, and just love this game and want to share it, you're for us. Looking for reliable and flexible players who can commit to at least 2 practices. This is a great community service opportunity for high school and college students. Yes, we do give letters and service hours. WE ASK VOLUNTEERS TO COMMIT TO AT LEAST 2 TIMES ON THE FIELD. If you can donate $10 or a soccer ball, we appreciate that, too. If you aren't able to coach, but still want to help, we need folks to:
- advertise with flyers, post flyers, drop off flyers at schools and community areas - blast on social media - take attendance and register players - other administrative tasks Please send us information about you- a resume or some information on your background so we get to know you a little to soccer@seedsinthemiddle.org

If you have other times you are available - even to do a workshop in a school, let us know.
