Soccer develops agility, speed and stamina, and also teaches children the importance of teamwork, so it can play an important part in your child’s physical and social development. Many communities offer soccer leagues for a variety of ages and skill levels. Choose a soccer league that matches your child’s needs. If you are unsure which league is best, talk to some team coaches to see if they are a good match for your child.

It is our mission to make learning soccer simple, safe, enjoyable and fun for your child. We share our passion and excitement for the world’s most popular sport with everyone in our program. We create a supportive and positive environment in which your child is challenged through a variety of ways. Our drills are tailored to suit your child, weather this is the first time he or she has touched a soccer ball, or the thousandth. We strive for consistency (day/time/coach) and diversity (drills and games) in each class experience.
For the younger kids, we offer creative games that not only teach basic soccer skills, but also letters, numbers, colors, listening skills and foot/eye coordination. We tap into a child’s imagination by referencing popular kids characters or songs to help explain some of the drills. We emphasize teamwork, treating each other with kindness, and celebrate each new task a child learns in our program with encouragement. Class sizes are kept between 6-12 kids for the toddlers with 2-3 coaches so that each child gets plenty of attention and is able to enjoy the class in his or her own way.
