Teaching children the game of soccer and having fun while playing, is what this group takes pride in accomplishing. There are currently 275 children and 7 teams taking part in the program. Both boys and girls may join beginning at the age of four. (Four-year-olds must have a copy of their birth certificate available at registration) There is also one team of girls under 19 years of age. Seven coaches complete the league. Aldo Sammarco, the group's founder, started to teach soccer in Bedford 33 years ago. There were no other clubs in the area at that time. The area teams use the Bedford Hills Field for their games and in 1995 lights were installed there through the efforts of the Bedford Soccer Club. The extensive funds for this project came from the fees paid by those who joined teams over many years. A number of children who began in this program became so proficient at the sport of soccer, that they have won scholarships to colleges all over the country.
