U3 First Kick Playgroup Program:
The U3 program is loosely structured, and parent interaction is essential. At each session, we ensure a ball for every child and prizes to foster excitement in the sport and to provide positive reinforcement. The main goals of our First Kick program are:

– Introduce soccer in a developmentally appropriate way.
– Development of socialization skills and help build a sense of community for both toddlers and parents.
– Nurture the development of early motor skills: running, jumping, skipping, kicking a ball, etc.
– Guide parents in age appropriate activities that they can utilize on a daily basis.

U4 First Touch Program:
The U4 program we start to introduce a more structured approach to soccer learning, which requires players to listen and to follow directions. At each session, we ensure a ball for every child and small prizes to foster excitement in the sport and to provide positive reinforcement for positive behavior. The main goals of our First Touch program are:

– Introduce soccer in a developmentally appropriate way.
– Development of socialization skills and help build a sense of community for both toddlers and parents.
– Nurture the development of early motor skills: running, jumping, skipping, kicking a ball, etc…
– Guide parents in age appropriate activities that they can utilize on a daily basis.
– Begin to familiarize players with the concept of team work.
– Foster the child’s ability to listen and follow directions
– Cultivate the development of problem solving skills to encourage children to think independently and answer questions presented by the coach.
