Steamboat Springs Youth Soccer Association

2019 Toddler Summer Soccer Sessions

For 3 to 5 year olds

Hello Everyone! My name is Erin Early and I have had the privilege of working with Steamboat's little ones over the past 9 years if you have been involved in these camps in the past. I have been a teacher in the Steamboat Springs School District for 11 years have been coaching for 11 years at the youth club and high school level. I can't wait to begin working with your child! I will be the director that oversees the program and coaches this summer.

I am so excited to introduce Sara Stout as another coach to our program! Sara has helped with Toddler Soccer in years past and is a Steamboat Soccer Club alumni. Sara just finished her first year teaching at Steamboat Springs Middle School and has been volunteering for the Steamboat Soccer Club. We welcome Sara's enthusiasm and expertise to our program! She will be around during all summer options and will be our July program director.

We will be offering 9 sessionsthis summer for 3 to 5 year olds over the course of 9 weeks. Your child can play soccer once a week this entire summer!

The 9 weeks are broken down into 3 options; one in June, one in July and one in August.
