The 4-5-6 year olds gather with their parents
for a group photo at Joe's Soccer Club.
The Brookline Recreation Center hosts a
summer soccer camp for children ages four through nine in June and July. The
camp is run by staff members Joe Szymanski and Kathy Rudolph. These pictures
show Joe's Soccer Club going through their drills on July 5, 2012. The clinic
brings the kids and their parents together to learn the fundamentals of soccer
in a fun, interactive and friendly way. The boys and girls all receive a special
Joe's Soccer Club Brookline Park t-shirt, learn about the game of soccer, and
most importantly, have a good time doing it. This is a great way to get children
interested in America's fastest growing sport, soccer.

Instructors Joe and Kathy concentrate
on developing foot skills with their little soccer players.
Everyone gets a chance to show off their
skills, and some of these kids are quite good with the soccer ball.
Working the ball with both feet and
putting on the brakes are two of the important skills the kids learn.
What's actually hard work seems like
fun and games at Joe's Soccer Club.
The 7-8-9 year olds work on developing
their more advanced skills, like passing and throw-ins.
The kids always stretch first, then it's
on to the wild and zany world of coaches Joe and Kathy.
