Reach for the sky

The Compass - - SPORTS -

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.
