Tiny Tot Kickers
[2 -3 Years Old]
Tiny Tot Kickers ™ classes place a primary emphasis on childhood development while also introducing toddlers to soccer with games and activities that allow them to run, play as a group and kick a ball. The beginning of the season will focus mostly on non-soccer childhood development and as the season progresses coaches will begin to introduce more soccer specific games and activities. Our approach is one in which toddlers will gain the most basic soccer skills while facilitating their physical and emotional development in areas such as balance, coordination, sharing with others, following directions and social engagement. Playpen Sports Academy classes are geared toward toddlers’ unique way of learning and incorporate games and activities that include regular soccer balls, super soft & light play balls, parachutes, noodles, cones, scoring goals, lots of high-fives and more! (Adult participation is required)
Tot Shot Kickers
[3-5 Years Old]
Tot Shot Kickers ™ class is a beginner class designed to build off of the things learned in Tiny Tots while continuing to introduce higher level soccer skills and fundamentals, however participation in previous classes is not necessary! These classes will continue to take a childhood development approach and will focus on increasing balance and coordination while introducing things such as jumping, foot-eye coordination, ball control, listening skills, social cooperation, and independent learning. Some parent participation is still required, however our goal is to increase toddler independence by relying less on the parents as the season progresses. (Adult Participation Required)
