R Road, Madison Heights
arrive at the Complex a little before 10am next Saturday (9/8/2012)
so we can get the kids checked in. Kids should wear shin guards and
cleats (if they have them).
an adult, when you come to the complex please be ready to help with
your child with the activities. A typical session lasts about 30 to
40 minutes and consists of each player with a ball and fun
activities (parents and their kids). There will be not be a "game"
but there will be time at the end of the session for "Fun Time"
where the kids can run around and shoot on the big and small goals,
play around the cones, and interact with their TOT-mates.
Basically, we need to let them experiment more with the ball and
their body movements on their own with a little interaction from
their parents and/or Fun Leader(s).
cannot wear any jewelry at all while participating (includes
earrings, necklaces, bracelets (except medical bracelets, etc.);
this is an insurance rule.
always looking for volunteers to help. Remember that the hard work
and dedication to your child's development and love for the sport
is all done through volunteer efforts. Please help us to continue
growing and building a strong organization with many offerings for
our members by taking part in these volunteer efforts. If you can
offer you time or services to assist please send an email
