Children weren't the only ones running this weekend as parents throughout the Rim country were transformed into soccer moms and dads.
Nearly 300 children age 8 to 16 took to the fields to play in the Town of Payson Youth Soccer program.

Three player positions are still available. Call the Parks and Recreation Department at 474-5242, ext. 7 for more information.
