About

Dear Parents,

Welcome to this wonderful program that has evolved out of several cooperations between the Saturday Schools of the Washington, DC metro region.

Please find below a short summary of the benefits that the programs brings for the participating families and schools. That's on top of the fun factor!

Please do not hesitate to contact us via the contact form if you have any questions.

The program is open to students between 5 and 14 years old, with an emphasis of students between the ages of 6 and 13.

Students are divided into age groups as soon as the number of enrolled students allows it.

We look forward to having your family on board!

To register, please follow the Registration link.

SATURDAY SOCCER SERIES BENEFITS

For Our Saturday Students

  • motivation to master the language (naturally needed to participate in the training) - the motivation then comes from student him/herself, not from the parents,
  • identity (wearing the team colors and being part of a group that is identified by the language),
  • learning great soccer skills,
  • using the language to do something interesting (it answers the "why" that so many of our children ask, especially the 6 to 9 year-olds),
  • being part of a team,
  • integrating the language much more with little to no perceived effort,
  • associating the language with natural reflexes and real-life action (instead of mostly sitting behind a desk on Saturdays),
  • improving their native vocabulary.

For Parents

  • simpler logistics (compared to complicated travel team schedules),
  • easier motivation of their children,
  • identity without it coming from/being pushed by the parents (parents and students are on the same side.)

For Saturday School Teachers

  • have more motivated students,
  • that have better active language skills,
  • especially in the critical ages 6 to 9 where the resistance is often the strongest.

If you have any comments and/or ideas and suggestions, please let us know. We are always eager to find ways to improve the experience for everybody.
