The Playpen Sports Academy curriculum is focused on a number of different goals including teaching children how to move and use their bodies, share with other children, interact in social settings, follow directions, and most importantly how to have fun in a  physically active environment! 

At Playpen Sports Academy, we are focused as much on the individual development of your child as we are on sport specific skills that we teach. Because while we expect some of your children to go on to be great athletes, we expect all of your children to go on to be great humans!

Soccer Classes

Open to Learn more

Tiny Tot Kickers ™ 

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)

A - (24 - 36 Months)

Tot Shot Kickers 

A - (3 Years)

B - (4-5 Years)

Tot Shot Kickers ™ classes are open to brand new players with no experience or prior participation is needed! Although, for those who have done our Tiny Tots classes these Tot Shot programs are designed to build off of the basics learned in Tiny Tot classes while continuing to introduce higher level soccer skills and fundamentals. 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.
