Kidz Love Soccer has been teaching kids to love the game since 1979.
It's not hard; it's the world's most popular sport and is played in a nurturing, recreational environment. West Linn Parks & Recreation partners with Kidz Love Soccer to provide training for children ages 2-10. Typical sessions include age appropriate activities, skill demonstrations, fun games and instructional scrimmages. Young soccer enthusiasts experience soccer fun in a safe, non-competitive environment. Kidz Love Soccer's motto is "Where the score is always FUN to FUN!" Classes start on Sept. 6 and 9.
