Summer soccer ends with a kick (and a picnic)

RATON — Bob Mantz’ soccer league ended the season with a picnic and promises of another soccer adventure next year. Over 50 young people participated in the program and learned to run, kick and score as a team. Kids from 4 to 13 played all summer and gave local kids a chance to learn the most popular sport in the world. Soccer is the original ‘football’ and originated in China and was refined in Britain over a hundred years ago. Girls and boys can play, work as a team, learn to be coachable and enjoy getting fit in one of the most complete aerobic and safest sports there is.
