tina: My son did a couple of sessions here when he was 5 to 7. it is a nice and warm indoor setting for parents to cheer in (compared to outdoors for soccer or rink for hockey). He enjoyed it. Typically 2 to 4 teams practice at a time, so it is easy to see the variability in the coaching ability of the staff. If my son wanted to continue it, I'd definitely take him there. From my point of view, this is not as skillfully run a program as the Y swimming, for example. Very popular though, so give it a go. I think in JK/K virtually every kid we knew in cambridge came!
Rebecca: My son looks forward to this every year since he turned 5. They teach kids the basics and quickly put kids into teams playing actual games against each other, which is a lot of fun for them. They also learn teamwork and competition in the process. My only complaint is the yearly team assignment is a LONG process. They assess each kid's skill level carefully then assign teams. Could take 2+ hours so come prepared to wait. CORRECTION: This year (2016) there seems to be a new guy in charge and he's made the signups A LOT easier, by dividing into different age groups. Phew!
