The Kensington Soccer Club offers soccer at a low or no cost to low-income children - girls and boys - ages 3 to 19, in Philadelphia, mainly in the Kensington community.
This summer, beginning in early August, we will start training for several competitive teams for girls and boys ages 7 to 10, playing in a Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Fall Outdoor League and possibly other teams as well.
Starting in September, we will offer an outdoor recreational program one or two evenings a week and Saturday or Sunday mornings or early afternoons at Third and Dauphin Streets in Philadelphia and possibly at several other Kensington-area locations. (Here is a Google map of our main field: https://goo.gl/maps/tQtJftFw4SHY5Pex9)
And we will have summer soccer opportunities for teens - details TBD.
Experience in playing and knowledge of soccer a big plus. Coaching experience and / or experience working with children a big plus. Commitment to providing a caring and supportive environment for children a very big plus. Ability to speak languages other than English, especially Spanish, a plus.
We are looking for people who are willing to make a commitment to work with a team for at least one 8 to 10-week season, helping the children grow and develop in both soccer skills and personal development - learning teamwork and having healthy interactions with other children.
We also have a SAVE - Soccer Athletes Value Education - Table on weekends, with educational enrichment and reading to children who participate in our program.
