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)

Tot Shot Bombers ™

(3 - 5 Years)

Our Tot Shot Bombers class is an introductory class focusing on the most fundamental skills and functions used in golf without diving into the minor details, as well as general development principles that are so important across all of our classes. From a physical development standpoint, toddlers will get a chance to work on skills such as hand-eye coordination, balance, planes of movement, and overall body control. Furthermore, perhaps more than any other PSA class, our Bombers class will provide a focus on the social and emotional development skills required for overcoming failure, pushing past obstacles, and dealing with frustration. This class will be broken down into three main parts: Short Game (putting), long game (hitting bombs) and transferable (non-golf) movements and activities. Toddlers will get a chance to hit at lots of fun targets, nail exciting putts, hit bombs from the tee box, and a whole bunch of other fun activities with the group! All equipment is provided by us and is specially designed for ages 3-7 years old. (Parent Participation Required)

PSA Tour Pros 

(4-5 Years)

Our PSA Tour Pros class is a slightly higher level introductory class focusing on the general development principles that are so important across all of our classes while also touching on the fundamental skills and functions used in golf. As a step up from our Bombers classes, Tour Pros will gently dive into some more of the finer (yet basic) details required for learning golf such as proper stance, encouraging a fast swing speed, keeping your head down, and understanding range of motion. Just like our Bombers class, toddlers will get a chance to work on skills like hand-eye coordination, balance, planes of movement, and overall body control, while also focusing on the social and emotional development skills required for overcoming failure, pushing past obstacles, and dealing with frustration. This class will be broken down into three main parts: Short Game (putting), long game (hitting bombs) and transferable (non-golf) movements and activities. Toddlers will get a chance to hit at lots of fun targets, nail exciting putts, hit bombs from the tee box, and a whole bunch of other fun activities with the group!
