18-24 months: Joeys, (Parent/Child)
Often a child’s first experience with group learning, this class is designed to give them a perfect start. Managing a class full of toddlers can be like herding kittens. They’re 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—all building blocks needed for playing soccer.
2-3 years old: Wallabies (Parent/Child)
In this class, kids begin to learn to actively engage with the coach and other players. “Why?” 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–all necessary for mastering a soccer ball.
2.5-3.5: Boomers, (Parent/Child)
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. 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. We do so with fun and engaging games that help them begin to master movement and ball control.
3-4 years old: Flyers (Beginners)
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 is all about give-and-take. The goal of these classes is to create teammates who are coachable and eager to learn. Creative storylines and animated coaches keep kids engaged and having fun. They won’t even know they’re working hard and learning. They’ll come away with important skills for soccer and beyond.
3 & 4 yrs: Bouncers (Intermediate)
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’t even realize just how much they’re learning. Coaches will guide them towards great soccer skills (specifically passing, trapping, shooting, attacking and defending) and introduce them to scrimmaging.
4 & 5 yrs: Skippers (Intermediate)
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, Skippers 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.
5 & 6 yrs: Jacks (Beginners)
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. Jacks 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.
