Soccer offers a great way for a child to get in top physical shape through participation in a youth sport while having fun in a team setting.  Playing soccer improves flexibility, cardiovascular capability, and body composition.  Soccer players also develop a sense of self-confidence and increased social skills. Studies have shown that children who play competitive sports generally also perform at an above-average level in school.

Pekin Park District is offering recreational soccer which is designed to develop skills and allow adequate playing time under the direction of the Pekin Pride Soccer Club and Pekin Community High School varsity soccer players.
