“The experience of play changes the connections of the neurons at the front end of your brain,” says Sergio Pellis, a researcher at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada. “And without play experience, those neurons aren’t changed,” he says.


Many children in public school are getting less and less time outside, despite the documented benefits of free play.

A great event for the family, with plenty of food and entertainment. We’ll be back in August and October to support the Fremont event.

iSoccerPath, a HUGE success

Thursday, June 1st, Brookvale Elementary.

What a great night for the Fremont YSC and iSoccerPath who hosted their first ever College Coaches Panel. Over 200 attended and heard presentations from iSoccerPath and Coach Robin Hart from Menlo College on how to get into college through soccer. The club did an amazing job hosting and turning out all their coaches.

Thank you to all the parents and players that attended last nights educational college panel, presented by iSoccerPath. A wonderfully successful night for players to learn more about the college pathway.

The first in what we hope to be many educational opportunities for the club.
