Screen-Free Soccer for FCEPTA


Tuesday, April 17 at 6:30 p.m. in Cherry Hill Park

Falls Church kids, come join us in Cherry Hill Park on Tuesday, April 17 for an evening of "organized pick-up" street-style soccer! This part of Screen-Free Week is sponsored by the FCEPTA and is open to ages 3-12. Jessie Thackrey, Mount Daniel, and TJ students and their siblings, friends, and neighbors are all invited. Grab some dinner downtown and then come out and play soccer in a fun setting that's open to ALL skill levels.

The event is completely free! There is no cost to participate, but we do ask that parents register their children in advance. Players should bring cleats and shin guards if you have them, plus a water bottle and a soccer ball (we will have a few extras on hand).


What Is Street Soccer?

Street soccer is different than traditional start-stop training or structured team matches -- but it's just as important. Embedded deep in the DNA of all the world's best players, street soccer is the best way of developing originality, imagination, creativity, craftiness, problem-solving, and your own unique style of play. Players will enjoy a variety of pick-up games using different size fields, teams, goals, and balls to keep it fun and exciting. Although the philosophy of street soccer is to "let the game be the teacher," professional Golden Boot Soccer trainers will act as in-game mentors, throwing out advice, challenges, and even some of their best moves! This session is best for ages 7-12. Please sign up below.

What About Younger Players?

For ages 3-6, we will offer a shortened version of our popular Lil' Boots curriculum. Designed especially for young children, our active, engaging Lil' Boots Juniors and Lil' Boots Advanced programs focus on teaching soccer fundamentals through fun activities and small-sided games. Please sign up below.
