Soccer for Moms

Soccer is great exercise, lots of fun, and not just for kids. This class is for moms who have been watching their kids play soccer and want in on the action themselves, or for any other grown-up girl who wants to play the game.

Thundercat Sports coaches will provide the equipment, officiate the games, and give pointers to help improve your skills. Players at all levels are welcome (even if you’re not a soccer mom); the goal is to give you a good workout, plus some soccer inside scoop so you can maximize your enjoyment while cheering from those sidelines. Warning: It’s not as easy as it looks!

To register click here on the Newton Community Education Website or email Chris Allen at Thundercat Sports directly at
