Fall Fun in Fairfield
Although this summer certainly hasn’t been a bad one, the cooler fall weather is very welcome. Fall also brings another soccer season. Right now, boys and girls high school soccer and AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) games are in full swing.
The AYSO is a non-profit organization that was founded by a small group of people in Torrance, California in 1964. The national office of the organization is still located there. Kids as young as three can participate in AYSO programs and they can continue playing until they are nineteen. As the interest in soccer has exploded over the years, they have come a long way since their original nine teams. Currently the AYSO has 50,000 teams, over 500,000 players, and 125,000 volunteers!
If you are interested in finding out more about soccer, the Adams County Library System owns such books as: The Kingfisher Book of Soccer Skills by Clive Gifford, 100 years of soccer in America by the U.S. Soccer Federation, and Play soccer like a pro: key skills and tips by Christopher Forest. We also own soccer themed DVD’s titled Soccer Dog, Backyard Soccer Drills, and The Wild Soccer Bunch. Visit your local library branch to browse our collection or check out our website at www.adamslibrary.org.
Don’t forget Pippinfest will be held in Fairfield the weekend of September 27th and 28th this year.
