18 鈥 24 MONTHS ADULT INTERACTIVE | 15:1 CHILD-TO-COACH RATIO

Often a child鈥檚 first experience with group learning, this class is designed to give them a perfect start.聽

Managing a class full of toddlers can be like herding kittens. They鈥檙e playful, sometimes skittish and easily distracted. But with the right structure and interactions, a lot can happen. Activities with bubbles, parachutes, cones and other sensory toys build skills for balance, coordination, running, tracking, kicking and changing directions鈥攁ll building blocks needed for playing soccer. With parents by their side, our youngest Lil鈥 Kickers feel safe to explore new experiences and create new relationships while learning in a fun and dynamic environment

2 鈥 3 YEARS ADULT INTERACTIVE | 12:1 CHILD-TO-COACH RATIO

In this class, kids begin to learn to actively engage with the coach and other players.

聽鈥淲hy?鈥 Hang around enough with this age group of curious, older toddlers and you will hear that word a lot. Working with Thumpers and their parents, we welcome their inquisitive nature and sense of wonderment in learning. We use those traits to shape confidence and self-esteem to further build core movements like balance, coordination and timing鈥揳ll necessary for mastering a soccer ball. While parent involvement continues here, this class bridges the gap between parallel play and directly interacting with the coach and other players. So 鈥渨hy鈥 take a Thumpers class? Because it is a blast.

2陆 鈥 3陆 YEARS ADULT INTERACTIVE | 7:1 or 14:2 CHILD-TO-COACH RATIO

Here, preschoolers who are not quite ready to be on the field alone discover some independence.

Terrible twos? Not in our opinion! Though toddler behavior can be puzzling, these little ones are just trying to put the pieces together to grow into the person they are meant to be. Sometimes they get frustrated and their feelings come out sideways, especially when they are shy and a little tentative. We embrace the complexities of this time of life and help them transition into being more interactive, confident, self-reliant and relational. We do so with fun and engaging games that help them begin to master basic movement and ball control skills. The goal is to get them to be more interactive with the coach, to play with (rather than alongside) their peers and to engage in the game. Parents are there to provide just the right support.

3 & 4 YEARS | 7:1 or 14:2 CHILD-TO-COACH RATIO

To share and share alike? Not always. These kiddos are raring to go, but need lots of direction to get there.

Preschoolers have a hard time sharing, but we help get them there. After all, soccer (and life!) is all about give-and-take. The goal of these classes is to create teammates who are coachable and eager to learn. Sharing is a big part of that. Creative storylines and animated coaches keep kids engaged and having fun. They won鈥檛 even know they鈥檙e working hard and learning. They鈥檒l come away with important skills for soccer and beyond.

Developmental Milestones

3 & 4 YEARS | 7:1 or 14:2 CHILD-TO-COACH RATIO

Fun and fast-paced classes for kids who are naturally a little more competitive or with previous class experience.

Buckle up! These preschoolers are eager for action and ready to learn. With a curriculum chock full of imaginative games and adventures, these players are going to have a blast and won鈥檛 even realize just how much they鈥檙e learning. Coaches will guide them towards great soccer skills (specifically passing, trapping, shooting, attacking and defending) and introduce them to scrimmaging. Look a little closer and you鈥檒l also notice improved communication, listening, sharing, perseverance and resilience.

Developmental Milestones

5 & 6 YEARS | 12:1 CHILD-TO-COACH RATIO

For kids who are just getting introduced to organized soccer or who are less competitive by nature but want a great soccer experience.

Some kids are a little shy and perhaps not very competitive by nature, but still want to learn a sport and have a team experience. We get that. Big Feet classes serve these kids well. Full of all the same fun, goofiness and opportunities to learn soccer and life skills, these classes do it just a little differently. After all, lack of experience or temperament shouldn鈥檛 keep us from getting in the game.

Developmental Milestones

4 鈥 9 YEARS | 12:1 CHILD-TO-COACH RATIO

For kids who are driven to play.

Does your child always have a ball at their feet? Constantly talk about soccer? Or are they simply driven to get better? Created for kids who are motivated soccer players, Micro classes kick it up a notch. While coaching remains child-centered and fun this curriculum is fundamentals focused and provides game-like situations each week that help solidify learning. Players enjoy 30 minutes of age-appropriate instruction and 20 minutes of small-sided scrimmaging. Classes are offered by age and include Micro 4/5, Micro 6/7 and Micro 8/9.
