The Ocean City Nor'easters' Fall Recreation Program is back!
This year's edition, which is open to all players from Pre-K up to 8th grade will kick off on Sept. 28 and run through Nov. 4.
The recreation program will provide kids with a fun, age-appropriate introduction to the game of soccer from top-level coaches from the Nor'easters organization.
The program will be hosted at Richard Grimes Field at 6th Street and Bay Avenue in Ocean City, New Jersey.
"The Nor'easters are glad to be running the Ocean City Recreation program again this fall," said Nor'easters general manager Giancarlo Granese Jr. "The rec session will be twice a week Thursday nights and Saturday mornings and will run for a total of seven weeks. We as a club are happy to continue this bond we have developed with the children of Ocean City."
Each session will be one hour and focus on developing basic soccer skills and technical ability through fun activities, drills, and scrimmages.
"Our aim as a club is to make sure that we provided a fun environment for all kids who attend while also making sure that each participant is developing their game regardless of age and experience," said Granese.
Thursday nights is a technical training session delivered by the Nor'easters coaching staff along with parent volunteers. All sessions delivered will be in line with our specialized curriculum aimed at developing soccer players of all ages and abilities:
1st & 2nd 5:30pm-6:30pm
