Winter got you down? Play some indoor soccer

SUN Columnist

The Ross Aragon Community Center is starting up its free, indoor soccer program on Saturday, Jan. 19, from 10 a.m.-noon.

This is a great opportunity for kids to learn how to play this sport, or for kids to sharpen up their soccer skills throughout the winter months.

There is no age limit for this inside play.
