Prepping for the soccer season
Since January, youngsters from grades 1 to 5 have been gathering in the École secondaire du Sacré-Coeur gymnasium for a weekly soccer clinic.
The goal of these clinics, coached by brothers Charles and Paul de la Riva, with the support of a few parents, is to teach children from French-language schools basic soccer skills. While some students are learning to dribble and pass, many children have already been playing minor soccer and are getting ready for the upcoming soccer season.
Held on Sunday mornings (10 a.m. for grades 3-5 and 11:30 a.m. for grades 1-2) until the end of April, these clinics are offered in French at no cost, and is open to everyone. New participants are still welcome.
