What people are saying:

“I liked how they paid so much attention and helped me get way better at my shots. And the African drumming and games were awesome.” –Levi, age 12

“KidsAfrik is the BEST SOCCER CAMP EVER! Plus, the food is really good!” –Justice, age 9

“I am happy for my children to be in a culturally enriching setting while getting some one-on-one skills training along with a whole lot of exercise and fun. The coaching team is top-rate–challenging and supportive. Thanks for a consistently great experience!”

“My son has been to several soccer and basketball camps and I was beginning to think that camps just weren’t his thing. They were never good experiences and it turned into weeklong frustration to get him to go. …This is by far the best camp he has ever been to! He has learned so much already and looks forward to each day. I think it’s a combination of the small group/individual attention, the types of skills he is learning, as well as the personalities and teaching styles of the coaches.”  

“This program has been amazing in the progress my daughter is making each week. She absolutely loves it.”

“I just wanted to let you know that Alex really loved the camp. You know it’s going well when, after playing soccer all day, he comes home and begs me to play soccer with him in the yard.  He counts the camp as the best camp experience he’s had of all the camps he’s gone to. It was also such a treat to have lunch provided.”

Make-up sessions for Rec Soccer

Thank you all for your patience as we navigated a very rainy beginning to the soccer season!

We are almost entirely volunteer driven, so it is extra challenging to schedule, reschedule, keep fields in shape, and make sure that over 350 players get all the info and materials they need.

Big Thanks to the parents and community members that make all this is possible!

Here is our make-up session schedule for rec soccer in the next few weeks (weather permitting, of course).

Please check in regularly for updates and if you use Facebook, check in there for updates and photos as well: https://m.facebook.com/AmherstYouthSoccerAssociation/
