The Junior Tots program was created to provide 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.
For the Junior Academy and Junior Technical Training programs, the first half of each session/class is devoted to individual skills within a group setting and the second half of each session/class consists of a coach-facilitated scrimmage. These scrimmages are usually 4 vs 4 or 3 vs 3 on a small field, with the coaches serving as referees and also teaching the basic rules of the game. At this age group, we are introducing the concepts of field boundaries, passing, shooting and teamwork.
