Soccer is about teamwork, running, and agility. Our program teaches and celebrates all. Our coaches are joined by those from the NYC Football Club to teach kids how to pass, dribble, and kick through informal, co-ed scrimmages and instruction.
City Parks Foundation is launching a new registration platform through LeagueApps in 2023. When registering for a program, you will be prompted to create a profile for you and/or your family. This profile will be used when signing up for any CityParks Play programs moving forward. We encourage you to save your login credentials for future reference. If you are registering multiple children for programs, please only create one membership profile and add each of your children to the account. Should you have any questions or experience any issues with the registration process please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ages 7 – 12
Our summer beginner program teaches kids of all levels the basics of soccer through informal play and instruction. At the end of the summer, select participants are invited to compete in a one-day tournament. This program accommodates organized camps and youth groups at specific sites if/when space is available and on a “first-come basis.”
Check back for updates as additional sites may be added and schedule changes may occur.
