Chevrolet of WW helps kick start new soccer program
Walla Walla Public Schools teams with Chevrolet of Walla Walla to offer elementary soccer
Thanks to Jaime Tiscareno from Chevrolet of Walla Walla, this spring elementary students across the school district will have an opportunity to compete against each other in soccer. The new program was made possible thanks to a generous donation from Chevrolet of Walla Walla, the school district’s levy funds and grant support from the district’s 21st Century Afterschool Program.
This free new co-ed soccer program, for 4th and 5th grade students, begins April 10 and continues through May 18. Program management will fall under the umbrella of the district’s 21st Century Afterschool program, and equipment and program associated costs will be funded by the donation. The goal of the program is to provide a positive afterschool activity where students can enhance their soccer skills, learn to play as a team and develop good sportsmanship.
“We wanted to have a direct impact on our children and give back to the community,” said Jaime Tiscareno of Chevrolet of Walla Walla. “We didn’t have a soccer program in our elementary schools when I was a kid and I want to make sure today’s students have this opportunity. We look forward to seeing the students compete and have fun representing their schools.”
Practices will be held after school from 2:45 to 4:30 p.m. with games being held on Mondays and Thursdays after school. There are no practices or games on Wednesdays. Schools will play each other twice during the season. Transportation will be provided from the school to the game sites for all players. Parents are encouraged to pick up their children after all practices and following the games at the hosting schools. However, school transportation home is available if needed.
