Louisville City FC & Racing Louisville FC are excited to kick off their inaugural Reading Program. The program is intended to encourage the importance of reading for elementary school students, while also giving our players an opportunity to connect with the youth of our community.
Kindergarten through 2nd grade classes and camps
Kindergarten, first and second grade teachers within the Jefferson County Public School system can apply to have Louisville City FC or Racing Louisville FC players visit for story time in their classroom.
How It Works:
Teachers will be required to apply their group into the program by completing a one-time submission form.
Teachers who have already applied into the program will receive a sign up sheet with available visit dates throughout the season. Dates will be available on a first come first serve basis.
Please note: training and travel dates are subject to change, which could result in the cancellation of a selected visit. In the event this happens, every effort will be made to reschedule the visit.
Visits must be scheduled after 1 p.m. but some exceptions may apply. Teachers will be contacted in advance of their selected date to confirm the visit time. The visit will be for one hour, and teachers must provide the stories to be read. Extra time beyond story time may consist of Q&A between the players and students and photo ops. Any other activities that wish to take place within the hour visit must be submitted by the teacher and approved in advance.
A photo of the players with the class will be featured on the video board during a game at Lynn Family Stadium.
The reading program will run from March through September.
