Kids Love to Play Soccer! New Skill Being Added! EMH Sports

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We will be introducing “agility ladders” a new skill building tool to our Spring lesson plan.
Children love to play soccer because they:
1.      Expect to have FUN,
2.      Learn SKILLS,
3.      Develop FITNESS,
4.      And because they enjoy a little COMPETITION.
If you have not signed up yet, it is not too late. The cost is $28 for the month of May. As this is our last sport until the fall, full payment or PO (or deposit) must be received before the first class session.  Please don’t wait until the last minute to register so that no extra fees will be incurred.
