On Saturday, May 4, Asphalt Green hosted its biggest annual event, Big Swim Big Kick, at its Upper East Side campus. Over 950 kids ages 6-10 experienced the thrill of jumping into an Olympic-size pool for a 25-yard swim meet and played soccer-themed games on our athletic field.


A little rain didn't stop the fun. Dynamic Freestyle Soccer Crew gave a lesson to the first 50 kids on the athletic field and put on a performance filled with juggling tricks later in the afternoon. Children tested their skills with soccer darts, soccer pool, soccer tennis, one-versus-one, and more. Inside the AquaCenter kids raced their hearts out to the finish line in our Olympic-size pool. It was a true celebration of sports and fitness, and everyone went home with a t-shirt, medal, and ice cream.
