Getting social with soccer in Groton
Groton — At least one group of kids is back on the soccer field at Poquonnock Plains Park in Groton.
Greg Georges and his wife, Melinda, of Groton wanted their children, Gabriel, 10, and Donovan, 9, to be able to get outside and socialize safely with a small group of their friends. Greg, an assistant coach for a Groton Soccer Club team, thought since the spring soccer season was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, they could invite some friends of their boys from soccer to join them in practicing their skills in a relaxed atmosphere. Melinda added the idea of the group having lunch together so they could socialize and have time to play after soccer.
The group began getting together for a few hours on Monday and plan to continue Monday through Friday every other week. Mothers of the kids are taking turns supplying the lunches.
