The GC Centennial Soccer Club is offering spring soccer clinics for children in grades 2-8. The clinic program is presenting the opportunity to those children who would like to have fun, enhance their skills and play more soccer. These clinics are interchangeable and children can attend multiple clinics. Therefore if a child in Grade 2 cannot make the Tuesday clinic, they can attend the Grade 3 clinic on Wednesday. If a child in Grade two or three would like to attend both clinic days (Tuesday and Wednesday) they are welcome to do that. The same holds true for children in the older age groups.
