Soccer for kids who are-get this-only 18-months old. A nonprofit in San Francisco recently started offering a program for toddlers and is growing in popularity with moms and dads who want to give their kids a chance to burn off extra energy while they mix and mingle with the other parents.
Classes are held at Telegraph Field, one of the few fields in San Francisco which is run by a nonprofit with a mission of introducing kids to soccer. It is located right on the waterfront, has easy access to downtown and a great view of the Coit Tower.
