Kickin’ It with Kids: Soccer-loving volunteers needed

7 Oct
2011

Seeds in the Middle is a nonprofit organization in Crown Heights inspiring social change through sustainable health.  One of their many programs is a youth soccer league, and it currently could use a few extra volunteers for the fall clinic. So dust off your cleats (or just your sneakers, whatever you have) and head down to the pitch at Lefferts Avenue!

In addition to teaching kids a sport you (hopefully maybe) love, there’s the potential for you to gain something most coveted in NYC: full field 11v11 games either before or after one of the weekend sessions. That’s right, free full field soccer in NYC! This is a win-win opportunity for any soccer-loving volunteer!

So, the current time slots are as follows, running now until Thanksgiving:
