It's hard to believe summer's drawing to a close... Keep the good times rolling by signing up your little kicker for Hampshire Cooperative Nursery School's fall soccer program!
The HCNS Soccer Program will run for 5 wks, weather permitting, and is geared towards preschool-aged children ages 3-5 years old. (If your child is currently enrolled in Kindergarten, we highly recommend contacting your town's recreation department, as most have Kindergarten soccer programs.)
HCNS will be offering two different sessions: a Wednesday afternoon session running from September 27th through October 25th (12:30-1:15 pm) and a Saturday morning session running September 23rd through October 21st (9:15-10:00 am).
Our goal is to make these soccer practices safe and fun for everyone. Practice is 45 minutes long and emphasizes fun and vigorous participation. Age and ability differences will be taken into consideration. We aim for a low ratio of coaches to players, which lets us tailor the experience to the child. If a player is ready to learn how to make a good pass, we help that player with passing technique. If a player is ready for the first time to let go of mom or dad's hand during the warm-up run, we help with that, too!
Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The soccer coordinator will email you to let you know if your child has secured a slot, and all participants will be contacted no later than Wednesday September 20th, just prior to the first soccer practices. If your registration is received after the roster has been filled, you will be notified via email and your check will be returned to you via mail.

Children must be preschool-aged, and NOT in Kindergarten.
A sixth week will be added to the session as the rain date if needed. Practice is only canceled if it is exceedingly rainy or extremely muddy. Sprinkling rain is OK to play in, but please dress your children accordingly. In case of cancellation, you will receive an email by 8 AM on Saturday or 11 AM on Wednesday.
All sessions are subject to minimum enrollment. In the event a session is canceled, you will be notified via email and your money will be returned.
Soccer meets on the field outside the playground to the right of the school (104 Lyme Rd. in Hanover). Please park on the grass next to the field (perpendicular to the road). Use extreme caution when entering/exiting the parking area. Watch for children at all times!
Bring a #3 soccer ball and water bottle (please label both with child's name) and wear regular sneakers (no cleats)
A parent or designated adult will need to be present and responsible for each player in the Saturday session.
WE ARE IN NEED OF VOLUNTEER ASSISTANT COACHES FOR BOTH THE WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY SESSIONS! The only qualification you need to help us coach is enthusiasm. Please email me if you or your spouse is interested. We strive for a low coach to player ratio. Each assistant coach may enroll one of their children for free!
****Coaching slots will also be on a first come first served basis until we reach the desired number of coaches to reach our coach to child ratio. Sign up early to ensure you can coach!
I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Please don't hesitate to email me.
