Revere Special Olympics Program To Expand In Fall 2017; Soccer Program Begins Sept. 30

August 10, 2017

Mayor Brian Arrigo is proud to announce that the City of Revere and Special Olympics have partnered to further expand the program in the City this fall.

A soccer program for children age 5-15 will begin on September 30, adding to the successful Young Athletes Program for kids age 2-7, which will return for a third session in September. Both of these programs will be free for all children. 

"Last year, we brought Special Olympics back to Revere with the young athletes program. with hopes that we could expand the program if it was successful," said Mayor Arrigo. "Thanks to the generous support of parents, volunteers, and the Revere Public Schools, it was a tremendous success. Because of this, Special Olympics will be expanding their presence in our community."

The Special Olympics Jr. Soccer Skills program is open to kids of all skill levels age 5-15. Sessions will be held on Saturdays at 11:45am-12:45pm from September 30-November 4, on the field at Paul Revere School. The field will be newly striped for soccer and nets will be installed. 

The Young Athletes program returns again this fall, a unique sports and play program for children age 2-7 designed to serve as an introduction to sports and the world of Special Olympics. Sessions will be held in the Paul Revere School gym on Saturdays from 11:00am-11:45am, from September 30-November 4.

"We're excited to offer these programs for free for our children," said Mayor Brian Arrigo. "We look forward to strengthening our ties with Special Olympics in the years to come and offering even more programming for all ages."
