DEDEDO, GUAM (March 23, 2018) –  Guam’s only sports program offering a one-team environment for “typical” kids and kids with special needs opens its Spring 2018 season tomorrow with team orientation activities and the first scrimmages.  A training ground for character development, community building, and inclusiveness in sports, E-soccer allows kids of all abilities to participate as players or as trained, volunteer junior coaches.  The program is designed to enable players, coaches and fans to experience a higher goal for sports, where — more than personal success and skill performance — it is diversity and inclusion that make excellent athletes and winning teams.

The Spring 2018 season of E-soccer kicks off tomorrow from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Dededo Sports Complex Soccer Field in Harmon.  Media are invited to cover this one-of-a-kind event and interview program directors, coaches, junior coaches, players and parents.

Ten teams totaling sixty players ages 4 to 18 years, along with over thirty coaches and junior coaches will kick-off the 6-week season, which runs March 24ththrough April 28th.

E-Soccer’s Spring 2018 season is made possible by generous donations from these community-minded sponsors:  Coast 360, C2 Social, Cost U Less, DcSigns, Department of Parks & Recreation, and One-Stop Auto Care & Tire Outlet.
