Summer Soccer Practices 
Starting Monday, July 14th the TrekNorth Soccer team will be holding informal training sessions every

Monday and Wednesday from 6pm to 7:30. Returning players are encouraged to come out and keep their skills fresh. This is also a great opportunity for new and curious players to come out and get a feel for the TrekNorth team and program.

Our team is co-ed so boys and girls are welcome to play. We will have a half hour or so of basic skills training and then the kids will scrimmage for an hour. Attendance by returning players is encouraged but not mandatory.

Hope to see you! Email Coach Dan Gannon with any questions: dgannon@treknorth.org
