New soccer league established for Amherst’s sixth to eighth graders

The Amherst Falcon High School Soccer Program is partnering with the Jensen Community Center to provide an extended opportunity for players currently enrolled in the sixth through eighth grades. The First Middle School 3v3 Soccer League will follow the Jensen Center’s Youth Soccer season, running May 23 to June 8 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. on the Amherst Falcon turf soccer field.

The first hour of these sessions will focus on skill and tactical development by Amherst High school coaches, including Ryan Pikka and Erik Linde, and players. The second hour will be 3v3 gameplay. Teams will be randomly generated each day. The daily focus will be on building individual and team skills, relationships, and a love for the game.

The cost is $25 per player and will include six practice sessions and six game sessions. Electronic registration is now open on the Jensen Center website at jensencenter.org/events. Or you can use the paper form found on page 6 of the April Spirit. Registration deadline is May 12.

For questions regarding the program, email rpikka@amherst.k12.wi.us or elinde33@gmail.com. For questions about online registration, contact the Jensen Center at (715) 824-5202.
