GYSA’s fall kindergarten program is set to start in early September 2016 and is held once a week on Saturday mornings with no soccer on Columbus Day weekend. Clinic is about an hour (sometimes a bit longer if the kids are really into it that day) starting at 8:00am. It features fun game style drills to keep the kids engaged and foster their interest in the game and we end with small sided pick-up games. There are no teams at this age, and the co-ed, non competitive program is designed to give kids an introduction to soccer. In-
The G2 program is for 1st and 2nd grade players only. Each player receives a full uniform (shirt, shorts and socks) at the start of the season and a medal at the end. The season is 8 Saturdays starting in early September and will feature 50 minute semi-competitive games with no soccer on Columbus Day weekend. Players are placed on teams with their own gender and they have one practice per week.

Did you know that you can make a free donation to the charity of your choice every time you shop at Amazon? Amazon has something called the Smile Program and if you sign up every time you shop Amazon makes a donation to the charity of your choice at Amazon’s expense. Their list of charities includes every charity registered with the IRS. The one issue you need to be aware of is the charity you pick has to have set themselves up with Amazon or the money goes into an account on hold until the charity signs up with them. I have already worked through this issue with the Georgetown Education Foundation (Georgetown Public Education Foundation Inc). You can read about the program here.
