Just signed my boy up for Saturday soccer at the TAS. This is the 3rd year running he will have played. He loves it. This year he has moved up to the “Minors”, 2nd and 3rd graders that is and he will have to go for his skill assessment on November 3, and then first training is on Monday November 10, and then the first game on Saturday November 15 at 1:40pm. He is pretty excited and has tried on his old soccer boots already and amazingly they still fit him. Which is lucky as I searched all over Taipei to find this one lone pair of soccer boots his size…
I think they do a pretty good job out there at the TAS and TYPA for the kids with thanks also to all the parents who volunteer. There is still time to register your kids, by the end of this month.
There are 8 games, 2 games for each month from Nov. to Feb with a BBQ for the kids on the last day and all kids get a medal and team photo. And they get to meet more kids to play with. Though lots of the kids still speak Chinese, this is the only time my boy gets to play with kids and speak only English, except for when we go back to Australia and he can play with his cousins.
