Email soccerfriendsusa@hotmail.com

For many children, the place to play is, or has to be, within their own four walls. Homework, computer games, and surfing the internet restrict the time for physical activity. Continuing reduction of physical education in schools compounds the issue of inactivity for children. SFUSA compensates for children’s lack of physical activity by providing a variety of physical activities in all of our programs. We focus exclusively on the needs, desires, and interests of children. Our classes are energetic, fun, and your child will learn new skills.

Fitting children with glasses is a very different task from fitting an adult with glasses. Most children have serious medical issues like strabismus (crossed eyes) or amblyopia (lazy eyes).

We make sure they have no reason not to wear their glasses, as they are important and necessary.
