The Little Kickers program is for pre-school aged players, ages 3-5.
At this age the primary focus is to have fun! There are many activities that we'll do with the kids that will help them progress into future soccer players. At this age the focus and attention spans are very short, as parents you probably already know that. We will coach to the strengths and abilities of this age to help keep them focused and having fun.
The curriculum will be developed using the United States Soccer Federation or USSF guidelines. We will not push the kids more than what they are ready for. That being said this is a one day a week program that will last for 1 hour.
There will be games that you may see as unrelated to soccer but many exercises are for the motor function and getting them ready to play the game of soccer.
The season will start the week of April 13th. Sessions will be once per week, for a total of 6 weeks ending the week of May 18th. We anticipate the sessions will be held on Monday nights.
As a not for profit committed to growing soccer, we are offering the program as a community service...but there is a catch. We are trying to get the parents more familiar with soccer so you can play with the kids in the back yard. We will be strongly encouraging parent involvement at practices, if you are physically able. The more knowledgeable our parents are the better our players will become. Be prepared to kick the ball around with the players!
