  • Panama City Beach Sports Complex: There is a youth soccer program beginning on Monday, September 14 called Start Smart Soccer. The Start Smart Soccer Program is a developmentally appropriate introductory soccer program for children 3-5 years old. The program prepares children for organized soccer in a fun, non-threatening environment. Parents work with their children during the skills and drills.

     The program will take place on Mondays from 5:15-7:00pm, starting September 14 until October 19. We’re looking for a few volunteers that would like to assist with the program, specifically those who are looking for coaching/leadership/teaching opportunities. Volunteers will help setup the field and work with child/parent groups during program activities that include components such as kicking, dribbling, trapping and throw-ins.

     If anyone is interested in this volunteer opportunity, they can reach out to Chad Mazur directly at or 850-588-4908.
