CityParks Sports and the New York City Football Club
(New York City FC) offer a youth soccer programs for kids 8 - 12
. During each session, participants receive technical guidance and ball mastery training supported by New York City FC in partnership with City Parks Foundation coaches.
Players are split into teams for fun, "street soccer" style games. The format is designed to promote camaraderie, creativity and player ownership of the game. The summer program takes place weekly in two parks in each of the five boroughs, with hopes that the model can be scaled as interest in soccer in New York City grows among kids of all athletic abilities.
Online registration for this program is now closed. If space is available, you can still register in the park or by printing a copy of the registration card and bringing with you to the park during program hours. The program runs July 5 - August 11 - view park location and program hours here.
