Time, again, to kick-in at the Market House

Soccer starts today

We play today!

Our kids are going to be running around at the Market House again. We should be holding a ribbon cutting.

The Market House Childrens Athletic Association is about to resume programming after a year of no activities due to the lay-offs and closures by the Mayor.

Sign ups for the fall youth soccer program will be from 6 to 8 pm on Friday, Sept. 10 and from 10 to noon on Saturday, September 11.
Market House Basketball team - yellow - LakersThe Market House is located on the South Side, at 12th Street, and Bingham Square, very near to East Carson Street, the main street through the South Side Flats.

The Market House youth soccer program, for both girls and boys, is slated for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for ten weeks. Times are 5 pm for ages 4, 5, and 6; 6 pm for ages 7, 8 and 9; and 7 pm for ages 10, 11 and 12. Charges are a $25 nonrefundable registration fee of $25 for the first child and $15 for each additional child. Additional info and scheduling will be provided at signups and in the first week of practice to follow.

The goal is to get up to 15 players on six teams in each age group --- and no more. Registration will be limited. Parents are needed as volunteers and coaches.

Hope to see you there.

The photo in the blog shows a basketball team from the spring of 2003. I helped coach the yellow team, The Lakers. I think we lost most of our games in the season but then went to the finals -- and I can't even remember if we won or not. Who cares. The Market House is a great place to learn sportsmanship and have fun with some new friends.

The fall season is dedicated to the kids playing indoor soccer. In the winter we play hockey on the gym floor. Basketball might occur in the spring. Time will tell what to expect in the future programs.
