Soccer Kids NYC recently held their annual ice cream with the coaches event at Juniper Valley Park in Middle Village.

More 300 families throughout the Queens area attended the event where kids and adults enjoyed ice cream while engaging with other families.

“It is refreshing to see many families of diverse backgrounds come together for ice cream and fun games. They are here for a common purpose: to have a great time. This event represents what Queens is all about. We need more events like these where families can come together regardless of their background or political affiliation and just enjoy the moment,” said Ramona Ciobanu, director at Soccer Kids NYC.

The organization services over a thousand families every season. The program is available yearlong in Bayside, Astoria, Middle Village, Howard Beach, Oakland Gardens and other areas of Queens.

The program is inclusive of children with special needs and has been named Best Soccer Club two years in a row (2017 and 2018) in the Bethpage Best of the Boro competition.

Assemblyman Brian Barnwell was on hand for the ice cream social and shared his support for Soccer Kids NYC.

“Soccer Kids NYC is a great group of kids that have been taught how to team-build. They are learning character and learning disciple on the field. You can tell how thrilled the families are with the program,” he said. “The coaches and the organization are leaders in their field and I look forward to working with them, supporting and expanding this program. They have my full endorsement and I wish that we have more programs like these in Queens. It’s great to see how these children are developing a positive self-concept and learning the fundamental of the game.”

“This was an inspiring event,” added Jennifer Tineo, assistant director at Soccer Kids NYC. “The Soccer Kids NYC staff and coaches were able to donate their time to bond with the families. Every team member brings a unique personality into this event and we use this opportunity to focus on unity, inspiration and build a family-like atmosphere with the hundreds of families in attendance.”
