There’s a great soccer store in Brooklyn called Upper 90, which, in addition to carrying great shoes and international gear you can’t find anywhere else, has a half-size indoor soccer field for clinics and birthday parties. We went to our son’s best friend’s 9th birthday party there last weekend and were so impressed by the efficiency and fun. The enthusiastic and skilled instructor ran warm-up drills as well as refereed (and coached) a game. It was a drop-off, but parents could kick back on the sidelines and watch the game. There was a nice set-up for pizza and cake. Perfect form of outsourced party! Let us know of similar indoor facilities (this is obviously harder for those of us with cold winters) around the country. We’ll make a list and post it again.
