Neither Snow Nor Rain Stops These Athletes

Dearborn, Mich. — This time of the year outdoor athletes of all ages want to get out on a nice sunny day. But imagine if your sport was available all year.

The Select Soccer program at Detroit PAL is a year-round program for boys ages 9-14 and girls ages 13-19. The spring season runs from April to June, so while last week was ideal, it's nice to have an indoor option during chilly weeks such as this. Practices are held two days a week. With weekend games played throughout Greater Detroit there's plenty of opportunity to put the competative spirit to the test.

In the meantime, Coach Douglas Brigham keeps his kids moving and burns some youthful energy. Additionally, the young athletes are mentored and learn about nutrition to keep them in top athletic form.
