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.
The U4/U5 Microkicks is offered in the spring and fall as part of our Recreational Program registration. Your child will automatically be placed in this program when you enter their birth year in online registration.
