The Boys and Girls Club's Indoor Soccer Program has concluded another fun-filled season. More than 600 kids on 62 teams from all over the central Kenai Peninsula had the opportunity to be part of a team, get a little exercise and have some fun.
Many thanks to the players for their hard work and good sportsmanship; the enthusiastic fans for their positive support of the players; and the parents, who despite their busy schedules, took on the commitment to get their child to the practices and games ready to play.
And a very special thank you to the truly wonderful individuals who stepped up to coach a team and volunteer countless hours of their free time to work with the kids. We are lucky to have such selfless, caring people willing to serve as positive role models for our children.
