Soccer

Lollipop soccer is offered for children age 3 through incomming kindergarten. Lollipop soccer is a perfect way to get your child familiar with the rules and skills needed for soccer. Children are divided up into teams of 6-8 players. They practice for 30 minutes and then scrimmage another team for the remaining 30 minutes. Lollipop takes place on St. Jude's fields on Wednesday evenings in the fall for 6 weeks and is $35.00 per player. Each participant is given a team t-shirt and a snack and drink after each practice.

‚ÄčSAY soccer is for students in grades 1-8. St. Jude is part of the Western Cincy Soccer Association, which is a division of SAY Soccer. Uniforms are included.
