Grade 2 Jamboree

Wakefield Soccer Association is happy to provide this fun opportunity for Grade 2 players.   We hope that kids will have a great day of playing, learning some new soccer skills, and enjoying a very casual tournament experience, probably the first for most of them.  Our goal is for this event to be very exciting and memorable for players, parents, and spectators.
