Soccer instructors will focus on coordination and listening skills. Of course we will be introducing players to the basics of soccer, however this comes after some time with instructors teaching them how to interact with coaches, other players and the environment. This progressive program starts with listening skills and physical coordination tasks. We then progress to the individual parts of ball interaction, cone jumping, cone agility games and other simple tasks... and we finish with cone dribbling, passing, shooting and small games! Many of these activities focus on hand-eye coordination, balance, physical activity listening and learning how to dribble and pass to teammates.
There will be 6 total trainings. Each player will train one day a week: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday for 6 weeks.
To assure that all players and parents enjoy their experience in this class, you must be prepared to assist your child acclimate and settle into our program. This may require parents to participate with their child. It is to be expected that some kids may need a little hand holding or easing into the program. We hope that after a little time, your child will be able to participate without parent help. However, every child is different. Please respect our coaches and all other participants by jumping in the activities if needed!
