U4/U5 Microkicks introduces the fundamentals of soccer through creative activities engaging the child’s imagination while teaching ball control. The program is led by a professional coach with US Youth Soccer licensing and education specific to the cognitive, social and physical development of 3 and 4-year olds.
The format of the program is broken into 2 sessions each week--a practice day and a game day:
The goal of U4/5 Microkicks is to familiarize soccer in a fun way that relates to the child, while encouraging independence and social skills in both a large and small-group setting. Parents are encouraged to support their child from the sidelines, and not coach with instructions. The program aims to inspire a love of soccer while building intelligent players who can independently problem solve as they continue to grow and develop playing the game.
EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Each child will need to have a size 3 ball, soccer "cleats" (or athletic shoes), and shinguards. T-shirts (different color for each team) and socks are provided as part of the registration fee.
