Soccer for fun program starting

The Central Pasco County United Soccer Association started its spring soccer program for the casual player.

Each Monday for the next month, children will be supervised, but not coached for a one-hour session at the Land O'Lakes Recreation Complex off Collier Parkway.

"This is a way for the kids to learn the game on their own," said Fran Reidy, director of soccer at CPUSA. "There are no coaches really telling you what to do. When you're a kid, you just went to the field and played, and that's what we're trying to do."

From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., children ages 6-10 will play and from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., players 11-17 will play.

The cost of the program is $30 and participants can sign up each night before the session begins.

For more organized soccer, CPUSA is running its Footwork Program from April 23 to May 28. The focus of the program is to develop ball handling skills and will be taught by coach Serge Lipovetsky.

The six-week program is $85. For more information, go to cpusasoccer.com

or call Lipovetsky at (864) 377-1066.

Cheerleading: Pasco Elite All Star Cheerleading will have two-day tryouts for the 2008-09 season from 4 to 7 p.m. April 26 and 27 at the training facility at 8434 Afton Lane, Unit A, in New Port Richey. Attendance on both days is required. Preschooler through age 18 can try out.

A $10 tryout fee and signed parental consent waiver for each cheerleader is required (waivers are available at pascoelite.com). Wear comfortable athletic shoes, a T-shirt and shorts, and hair up and away from your face.

A special-needs cheerleading team for all ages with mild to moderate disabilities is being organized. Anyone interested in joining the team should visit April 27 to get an information packet.

For more information, call the Pasco Elite office at (727) 849-7980, or visit the Pasco Elite Web site at
