The past years have been incredible; we’ve met amazing girls, who are motivated and interested in working hard and developing their technical and tactical soccer skills.
Kicks and Tricks runs from June 24-28, and July 29-August 2 from 9am to 12pm on the Newton North High School fields and the cost for each week is $180. For more info and to sign up e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
