The Seymour Soccer Association Plays Soccer Year-Round

VCF sponsorship grant helps the Seymour Soccer Association offer winter soccer clinics, while cutting the program's usual cost per child.

The Seymour Soccer Association offers winter soccer clinics despite the weather. Thanks to a sponsorship grant from the Valley Community Foundation,the association offered an 8-week-long soccer clinic for more than 100 kids.The association takes the sport indoors to keep kids physically active over the winter and teach skills like ball handling, says Board president Al Bruno. The grant helped defray the association's cost to rent the indoor gym, which reduced the cost of student participation to $50 per child.
