Lil' Kickers Youth Soccer Classes

Step onto the field during any Lil’ Kickers class and you will find it transformed into a world created just for your child. Our well-trained coaches will thrill your child with 50 minutes of highly creative, high-energy, and age-appropriate activities that serve as a great introduction to soccer, and help children master developmental milestones.

Because Lil’ Kickers is first and foremost a child development program our purpose is really to help children mature on all levels. Our program focuses on helping children build strong physical, intellectual, and emotional skills that will help them be successful on and off the soccer field. We believe in teaching children in ways that suit their developmental level. So, you won’t see adult-like skill drills in our classes, but you will see teaching methods specifically designed to create an atmosphere that is effective and fun. You will also see happy, confident, and sweaty kids who are eager to learn and want to keep coming back for more.

Whether your child is new to soccer or has already developed a love for the game, the progressive nature of Lil’ Kickers offers a place for children at every level. Our convenient class times provide families with options to accommodate multiple children and busy schedules.

Parents and kids, led by one of our instructors, play organized games together to develop listening skills, balance, ball skills, and foot-eye coordination.

Cottontails (2.5-3.5 Years) – Parent & Child Classes

Cottontails is a class designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Thumpers class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without a parent or caregiver. The Cottontails curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball kicking. Cottontails classes also offer another component-helping your child build a sense of independence. As children progress through the session and become ready for more independence, parents can choose to transition to a less active role in the class.

Hoppers (3-4 Years) – Beginners

Jackrabbits (3-4 Years) – Intermediate

Jackrabbits classes are designed to help transition children into non-competitive team play.

The focus of the scrimmages will be to help players understand how to apply skills in different situations and build teamwork. Some small-sided non-competitive soccer games are introduced.
