  • Soccer for Success!

    Posted by Tori Brennan on 6/4/2021

    On Thursday May 27th, Barge-Lincoln's Soccer for Success players hosted Hoover's players for soccer games.  There was over 80 students participating between the two schools.  This is an after school program, sponsored from US Soccer, where Third through Fifth grade students had the opportunity to participate in soccer practices three days a week since mid-March until May 27th.

    The Barge campus was full of families that were elated to watch and cheer on their players.  Visiting fans watched from outside the fence line, while Barge fans were socially distanced inside and around the soccer fields.  Thank you to both Barge and Hoover coaches for spending March through May practicing and instilling the love of soccer in our students.  There were miles of smiling faces!
