We just got a notice in the mail about opportunities for kids to play soccer through Rec and Ed. The teams are assigned based on their public school attendance areas, or private school teams can be formed if the grade/registration requirements are met and 9 players are on a team. I don't think we will be able to fill a whole team from any of the grades (single gender teams from a single grade), but there may be alternative options such as forming a combo team with another school.
Priority registration runs until Feb 5th. If there is anyone who is interested in taking on investigating this as an option, I am sure that would be welcome from many parents. Any takers?

On a side note, David (my son-K) and Toussaint (1) are both playing basketball at the Y. They are on different teams, but have really been excited to be doing this "together". I know for David, having a buddy who is also into basketball has made him super-excited about participating, which is something he wasn't particularly into even last year. I hope we can create opportunities for our kids to play team sports with each other and make this an exciting and enjoyable part of their time at S-K.
Please email me at fran.loosen (at) gmail.com if you are willing to help research options for these kinds of student sports opportunities.
