Soccer Gear Swap

Hanging up your old Cleats?  Need some new soccer gear for the season?

Then join us for SMSA’s  SOCCER SWAP on Saturday, April 6th from 2-4pm at Lehman Fields!  

This event gives families the opportunity to donate  their child's clean, gently used soccer gear (cleats,shin guards, and soccer balls)and, based on availability,  get some “new to you” gear to prepare for the coming season.

Here's how it works:

Drop off your donations on March 22nd from 6-7pm or March 23rd from  9-10am at Spring Meadows Park at the Pavillion near the U9/U10 Soccer Fields. Please make sure that your used cleats are laced and CLEARLY SIZED.

Donations received will then be placed out for any SMSA families to come and shop the SWAP on April 6th!

This event works best if everyone adheres to the notion that donations of cleats and shin guards are in good enough condition that you would happily have your child spend the season in them.  (That is, if they fit.)

Any leftover soccer gear will be donated following the SWAP. 

SMSA cannot put on these types of events without volunteers like you!  For more information, or to volunteer to help make SMSA’s SWAP a success,  please contact Brid Kenyon at [email protected].
