Hi my name is Sydney and I love soccer. Soccer is a fun, healthy sport that is perfect for spring.  It's not like you need any skills to play it... it is for everyone.  All you need is love and passion for the game and your ready to go.  Soccer is a big sport in the US.  Originally men were only allowed to play, but now everyone is allowed.  Although soccer is my favorite sport it is not for everyone and that's ok but its great to try.   So give SOCCER a try!

Some Soccer organizations are:

AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization
US Youth Soccer
Brooklyn United Soccer club 

And remember Stay Healthy Stay Fit!
