INDIANAPOLIS (WISH)– A group of kids at the Boys & Girls Club are taking on a challenge to learn the game of soccer and it’s coming with a special incentive.
The “City-Wide Soccer Challenge” is a part of the Boys & Girls Club’s Triple Play Program. It’s designed to help kids take charge of their health and wellness.
That program qualified kids ages five through 18 to take part in the challenge. Kids took their shots at long distance kick, a goal shot contest and a cone drill to test their skills.
All Indiana’s Randall Newsome was there when the action took place and talked with the BGCI LeGore Unit Program Director Zach Sigmund about the challenge and why the organization felt this was the year to introduce their kids to soccer.
The winners from each age group in the challenge will get recognized at this weekend’s Indy Eleven home game as the team takes on the Birmingham Legion.
