Just for Kicks begins a new season

Latest News

Just for Kicks, CanAssist's free weekly soccer program for young people of all abilities, begins its new season this Sunday, Sept. 16.

Games take place Sunday afternoons, 2 to 3 p.m., from September through March at the UVic McKinnon Gym (in the building's Apparatus Gym).

There are no registration fees and children of all ages are encouraged to join. We provide soccer jerseys for everyone and, at the end of the program, we recognize each child's contribution with a medallion or trophy.

If your child would like to participate in this program, please fill out the JFK Registration Form [PDF - 217 KB] and send it to or fax/mail it to the address on the form.

"Last year we had a wonderfully well attended season with over 20 children each week and a similar number of volunteers," says Graham Duncan, who runs the program with his wife, Carmen. "The soccer games were lively, fun and rewarding for all of us so very fortunate to be involved with Just for Kicks."

The success of Just for Kicks is largely due to the dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer soccer buddies who play alongside our young athletes to ensure they have fun and participate safely. We are always looking for more soccer buddies, so consider joining us. Just fill out a JFK Volunteer Form [PDF - 174 KB] and send it to CanAssist's Volunteer Coordinator at the address or fax number listed on the form. No soccer experience is necessary.
