The Lil’ Kickers program is really amazing because it helps kids develop life skills such as teamwork, confidence, resilience and sportsmanship alongside soccer skills in a play-based atmosphere. Each session is filled with imaginative games that encourage the players to run, kick, score and try their best all while they are learning how to be a part of a team, take turns, win and lose. The Lil’ Kickers games are so fun. Some of the games have the kids imagining they are in an ocean full of sharks, kicking balls into an overflowing volcano, or using the soccer goal as a spaceship. The coaches begin each session with circle time and often ask the kids to join them on colorful spots on the field to learn about the next activity. The sessions are structured in a way that feels like a play-based school. Kids are practicing taking turns, listening to grownups and each other, taking direction and feedback and trying new things in a safe and fun environment. Beginning in the Micro classes, half of the 50 minute class time is devoted to learning the basics of scrimmaging. The coaches teach the kids soccer basics but also focus on passing, safety (keeping hands to yourself), and working as a team.
New families can sign up for a FREE trial class to experience the Lil’ Kickers program. Learn more and sign up for the next session of Lil’ Kickers here.
