East Side Sports offers fun, recreational/instructional soccer and basketball programs for boys and girls living in the greater Providence (and surrounding) area. It utilizes parent volunteer coaches and emphasizes core values that include the importance of sportsmanship, team membership skills, and instruction of developmental skills in a fun, moderately competitive environment. The overall goal of East Side Sports is to provide opportunities for children to learn a game that they can enjoy playing in a positive environment.
The soccer program, which offers recreational activities for children ages 3 through Grade 8, runs during the fall. Basketball features coeducational programs for children in Grades K – 8 during the winter months.
While we expect families to make a reasonable commitment to attending practices and games, we understand that activities such as family obligations, religious services and holidays, etc. should take precedence in our busy schedules. We encourage parents to achieve an appropriate balance in scheduling activities for their children and, therefore, East Side Sports programs are designed to contribute positively to family life. We also expect parents to fully embrace the above-mentioned core values as we work together to provide these valuable experiences for the children of our community.
East Side Sports’ games (and practices) provide a fun, family time and an opportunity to meet new friends. We look forward to meeting you and welcome you to the East Side Sports community.
