Our Youth Soccer School Program Info At A Glance
Our programs vary greatly depending on the age of the child. Regardless of the youngest or the
oldest, our coaches work on a 10 week rotating curriculum that focuses on key outcomes for that
week. The program rotates so one missed week is not detrimental
and children can join anytime. For example, they may have missed "left foot kicks" but that will
come around again.
The nature of our programs and coaching is also such that competitive
kids are encouraged and challenged by the coaches
while introductory children are supported by the coaches.
Toddler Soccer Programs
Toddler Soccer is for toddlers born from 2018 to 2020 looking to try soccer or
an activity possibly for the first time. Children may or may not be comfortable leaving Mom or
Dad and a supporting hand from the Parent is encouraged.
Our coaches support children through different games focused on learning basic agility such as
balance or kicking. Children will naturally be learning colors and counting throughout. Most
importantly, this is an exciting opportunity for children
to become independent and "learn how to be coached."
Kids Soccer Programs
Kids Soccer for those born in 2015 to 2017 begins to focus on teamwork and after
several sessions may introduce the concept of a "soccer game." Parents should be aware that
children at this age rarely pass and certainly don't function
as a team. Our coaches are instructed that it is better to change the game than to promote "fun
anarchy." Heavy coach participation is expected where the ball is "stolen" and distributed to
weaker players for example.
Youth Soccer Programs
Our Youth Soccer School Programs for youth born in 2014 and older, resemble what
parents would expect from a "soccer program." Soccer drills from the US Soccer player
development guides are introduced. For the first time a significant
amount of time is dedicated in each session to a soccer games/scrimmage.
