Our First Touch Program is an introductory program for children whose date of birth falls between August 2018 - July 2019. A variety of activities and drills are used to introduce the fundamentals of soccer. Children in First Touch will play once a week for seven weeks. They will attend the session day and time they registered for. Each session consists of 25-35 participants and is instructed by Parks and Recreation staff in groups of 8 or less. All sessions will be played at Kessler Mountain Regional Park.
