PSC Kids Club

kids-club-logo-oct-2016What is the PSC Kids Club?

A vehicle to promote and implement programs for the well being of children ages 4-12, established by the Pickering Soccer Club and operating in the new state-of-the-art Pickering Soccer Centre.

INTRODUCING the ACTIVE after School Program!

PSC is proud to introduce our first PSC Kids Club initiative, the ACTIVE after School Program targeting the benefits listed below:

Physical Literacy

Physical literacy oriented sports instruction and supervised activities, featuring soccer, track and field, Frisbee, football, soccer-baseball, obstacle courses, fun games, puzzles, leadership activities and much more! This also includes an hour of time for the kids to work on homework and/or arts and crafts.

Establish a Positive Relationship with Sport and Physical Activity:

Children require 60 minutes of physical activity every day to help with muscle growth and bone strengthening, aerobic activity, and of course FUN!  The growing epidemic in society is sedentary children who watch television, play video games, and eat junk food.  Pickering Soccer Club aspires to get children off their couches and onto the field.

When does the program run?

The program will run throughout the second term of the 2016-17 school year; from January 9, 2017 through to June 30th, 2017, from final bell (dismissal) until 5:45pm for a total 111 days.  Excluded 2017 dates are: Family Day, March Break, Good Friday, Easter Monday, and Victoria Day.

Bus pickup is available from the following six schools:

Alexander Graham Bell, Lincoln Avenue, Roland Michener, Lord Elgin and Sir John A. MacDonald.  Students from other schools are welcome to participate, but their own transportation would have to be provided.

What’s the cost?

$30/day or $150/week – Paid monthly.  Online registration is available at www.pickeringsoccer.ca/registration.

Who works with the children?

PSC Kids Club / ACTIVE after School participants are supervised and coached by experienced, fully qualified university students.
