Little Kickers Soccer really caught my attention this year! The philosophy is PLAY not PUSH which is exactly what my daughter needed. The price is right too. Only $105 for 6 weeks and $192 for 12 weeks and you can start ANY Saturday. The kids get to have a lot of fun and the games are easy yet challenging. Many of the classes are themed, for example, one week was Zoo week where every activity is on the topic of animals. Games and movements include color matching, counting, using our body parts, dribbling, scoring goals and other age appropriate game play.
As a parent I also love that the Little Kickers Soccer program starts with learning each others names. Seeing that my child is getting to know the others in class is comforting (no need to have to join with a friend). Each class starts with passing the ball and introductions. It’s great that you can start any time as the weeks are rolling weeks. The classes currently run on Saturdays so you can start ANY Saturday and no matter when you start, you get your 6 or 12 weeks (no worrying that you have missed classes in this structure).
Parents are close to the gym floor! The set up is really cool. There is seating around the edge of the gym where parents can relax, high five their children, provide a drink of water, tie up a shoe and say encouraging words. Children are comfortable! Little Kickers Soccer Program offers a positive, fun environment. PLAY not PUSH! LOVE it!
Tip: My husband likes to go 5 minutes early and kick the ball with my daughter!
Start anytime! Enjoy the Little Years!
