Manchester Parks and Rec will offer Sandlot Soccer Swim for the 13th consecutive summer, every Wednesday night from 5:30 to 7 p.m., beginning July 6. There is no charge or residential requirement for this fun event. Sandlot Soccer Swim is pure pickup soccer; no lines, laps or lectures. The kids choose their own teams, referee their own games, make their own rules and have their own fun. Everyone plays; everybody wins. After the game, players cool off in the MPR pool. Soccer time and swim time are roughly equal. But like everything else, that’s up to the kids. Players are divided into two groups by age: grades three to five and six to eight (school year 2016/2017). There is flexibility on most issues including age, grade, attendance, coed teams (or not). As an example, younger/older siblings can play with permission from the onsite adult supervisor. Complimentary T-shirts will be provided while supplies last. Sandlot Soccer Swim is sponsored by GateHouse Financial Advisors. For more information, contact David Gates or Steve Houseman at 802-362-5544.
