Oriental), and Paramount School of Excellence (3020 Nowland).  There will also be goals set up at O’Bannon Soccer Fields where our local Near East Soccer Alliance group will be holding league practice and games this spring.  The point of Goals for Indy is to get people out and get them playing.  So even if it’s just in your own yard, park, or neighborhood – get out and play!
