School teams from grades Pre-K to sixth will play for first and second place. The schools represented include: H.D. Hilley Elementary, James P. Butler Elementary, Escontrias Elementary, Paso del Norte School, Mission Ridge Elementary, John Drugan School, Salvador H. Sanchez Middle and Socorro Middle.
VASSP offers children in grades Pre-K to sixth a chance to participate in sports, motivating them to attain an interest in their classes, maintain their grade point average and help them develop a healthy lifestyle, said Caryn Gonzalez-Ayala, VASSP community services specialist.
“Our success comes from the number of students and their parents who get involved every year,” Gonzalez-Ayala said. “If it wasn’t for the volunteers, there would be no program.”
At the soccer playoffs on Jan. 27, families and fans also will be able to enjoy a Kids Zone and concessions.
“The teams have played hard all season along with their volunteer coaches and are very excited to have advanced to the playoffs,” Gonzalez-Ayala said.
