Youth enjoying playing soccer at Jackson Parish Recreation Department Complex

On Tuesday’s and Thursday’s during the month of October, boys and girls from the ages of 4-14 have been enjoying learning the fine arts of playing soccer and enjoying fun competition. Training and games have been played at the Jackson Parish Recreation Department (JPRD) Complex, located on Hwy 4 east of Jonesboro, in an informal setting where after a short training session each evening teams based on the age of the competitors are selected. 

“I would like to thank all the parents and volunteers who have worked so hard this month to help the boys and girls enjoy playing soccer,” said JPRD Director Tommy Smith. “While we weren’t able to host a full league as we wanted to we are very happy that the ones who have attended our sessions have enjoyed great fun.”
