3 to 4 years old
The Junior Tots program provides the youngest players with an opportunity to develop their basic motor functions within a soccer oriented theme. Lessons are developed to reinforce curriculums from preschool and kindergarten in the spirit of having fun. This includes patterns, colors, shapes, opposites, etc.. Each session has an overriding principle of developing impulse control and compassion for others. Players remain on task at all times with the elimination of lines and lectures. The Junior Tots program runs continuously throughout the year in 6-week sessions. Players can select the dates & times that fit into their schedule (as available). Players can either attend individual classes or sign up for the full 6-week session at a discounted rate. All Junior Tots sessions are led by a professional licensed coach.
4 to 6 years old
The Junior Academy program provides our 4 to 6 year old players with an opportunity to continue the growth of their individual technical skills while being introduced to a team environment in game-like settings. The three key components to this program include: (1)continued technical development, (2)introduction to team-play concepts and (3)introduction to the laws/rules of the game of soccer. Boys and girls in the Junior Academy program will play on gender-specific teams which are formed, primarily, based on residential districts and school location. Sessions for this program will be split between a training environment and a game setting. Unlike the Junior Tots and Junior TT programs, players in the Junior Academy program will meet at a set time on Saturday mornings for 8 weeks in the Fall and/or 8 weeks in the Spring. In order to promote and develop foot skills among the young players, no goalkeepers are used in the Junior Academy program.
