Kicks for Tots
Kicks for Tots has been developed to make learning soccer simple, safe, enjoyable and FUN for every child ages 2 to 4.
Our coaches are highly trained and involved in early childhood education programs. In Kicks for Tots, we are able to implement specific training methods that foster motor skills, cognitive development, and early literacy. 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.
In addition, Kicks for Tots offers for 2 to 4 year olds creative games that not only teach basic soccer skills, but early literacy using a variety of sources such as letters, numbers, colors, music, singing and listening activities that help develop language skills and foot/eye coordination. We tap into a child’s imagination by referencing popular children’s characters or songs to help explain some of the drills. We emphasize teamwork, treating each other with kindness, respect and celebrate each new task a child learns in our program with encouragement. Parent involvement is encouraged as you as a parent really are his or her first coach.
For the 3 to 4 year old kids, we work on techniques such as passing/receiving, movement with/without the ball, boundaries and defending/attacking - both individually and as a group. We want the kids to have fun, yet feel challenged. The program makes each class innovative and unique. Scrimmage games are included in each class session for groups age 3-4. Come and enjoy your kids childhood through the magic of the most popular sport in the planet and learn to appreciate the beautiful game of Football Soccer.
