Fall Soccer registration is OPEN!! Register online at http://sports.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=644496.

EARLY REGISTRATION BY 8/12/2016 = $50 per child

REGISTRATION AFTER 8/12/2016 = $65 per child

Jerseys are $25 if you need one. If you don’t need a jersey, Blue Sombrero is still going to ask you for a shirt size – just a heads up.

US Soccer will implement calendar year age-grouping for player registration beginning with the 2016-2017 season.

u6 division will be kids born in 2011 or 2012.

u8 division will be kids born in 2009 or 2010

u10 division will be kids born in 2007 or 2008

u12 division will be kids born in 2005 or 2006

u15 division will be kids born in 2002, 2003, 2004 (***NOTE: we plan to have TWO u15 teams this year***)

For most kids, the change to calendar year age-grouping will not affect which division they are assigned to.  However, if you feel strongly that your child should play up or down a division, please just let me know.

Fall Practice Schedule is TBD at this time. Practices will begin the week of 8/29.

***Games will be Saturdays. Some u12/u15 games on Sundays.***

PLEASE VOLUNTEER if you can. We need coaches and asst. coaches for all divisions, snack shack volunteers, etc. Sign up to help out – you won’t regret it!

SUMMER 2016 Yoga Calendar (1)

 

Our summer program begins Saturday, July 16! The six-week session runs until Thursday, August 25, and includes the following classes:

Monday, 5-6:15 p.m. Yoga for Physical Fitness **
Monday, 6:30-7:45 p.m. Kripalu Yoga for All levels
Wednesday, 6:15-7:15 a.m. “Sunrise” Yoga for All Levels
Thursday, 6:30-7:45 p.m. Kripalu Yoga for Beginners
Saturday, 8:30-9:45 a.m. Kripalu Yoga for All Levels

There are no classes on Monday, August 1; those classes will instead be taught the same times on Tuesday, August 2. There will be NO classes on Thursday, August 11, or Saturday, August 13. Please feel free to consult (and print out) the accompanying calendar to help you plan your attendance!

Kripalu Yoga for Beginners is for those individuals who are new to yoga or who enjoy building postures from the ground up. Poses will be explored with guidance and modifications. Students use postures, breath-work, and relaxation to quiet the mind, stretch and tone the body, and move the inner self towards stillness.

Kripalu Yoga for All Levels includes gentle warm-ups and leads to asana, in which students move from posture to posture in a flow-like sequence.

Yoga for Physical Fitness ** is designed for experienced yoga students. Stability balls, dumbbells and low-impact cardio exercises ameliorate traditional poses to fatigue the muscles and facilitate deeper stretching and toning.

Fees per person are: 5 classes $45; 6 classes $50; 8 classes $65; 10 classes $80; 12+ classes $90. Since registration is based on the number of classes one is interested in attending (rather than a particular day/time), classes can be attended any given day. Missed classes cannot be carried over into the next session. Classes can be attended on a walk-in basis for $10.

DISCOUNTS: If more than one member of the same household registers for a session, a 20% discount off the combined registration payment applies! Also, many students find that participation in a yoga program is reim-bursed by their health insurance companies; check out YOUR policy!

Direct questions to Rhonda Woodward, Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher, (887-8204/rhondawoodward@comcast.net) or to Sharon DeLuca, Director of Chester Recreation (887-5773). Sign up online at chesternh.org (find Recreation Commission page, then follow the Blue Sombrero link.) Classes take place in the Activities Room of the “pink” building to the right of the Chester Police Department on Chester Street.
