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.

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.
