Reach for the sky
The Conception Bay North minor soccer association had a big opening day for the under-six division last week. June 29 marked the start of the outdoor soccer season and for some of these novice players it was their first time on the field. Dozens of boys and girls from all over the region came to St. Francis Field to take part in the sport that is rapidly growing in popularity. Here coach Don Coombs leads the kids in some drills and exercises to start off the practice, which involved reaching as high as they could high and touching the ground. The under-six division meets Monday and Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. and is coached by Coombs and former female players.
