Upcoming Session is: Summer (8 weeks) 2017 dates listed below! Registration is open from April 10 through June 7 2017.
Kickstart (formerly known as Soccer-nastics) is a fundamental program for kids ages 3 and 4. Designed as a motor skill program, Kickstart has been molded into the premier introductory program to soccer for pre-school aged kids.Parents play along side their kids during the session so both parent and child learn the basics of movement, running, dribbling and ball touches with the surfaces of the foot.The one requirement for both parents and players is you must be prepared to have FUN!
Jumpstart (formerly known as Joga) is a soccer skill development program for 5 and 6 year olds. Jumpstart works on the basic fundamentals of the youth soccer game: dribbling, passing and basic receiving. Experienced youth coaches run every session with 30 minutes of skill building and another 15-30 minutes of game experience. Jumpstart is a great program for beginners and more experienced players alike. Our coaching staff will be able to challenge all players at any level! Fun required!
Touchsmart (formerly known as Toca) is a pathway between the Jumpstart sessions and the Academy. Offering more quality touches and advanced moves, players 7 and 8 will develop special skills to help them grow into their playing style and confidence on the ball. Touchsmart will provide small-sided games, fun activities where players will have lots of opportunities to be on the ball, make game-type decisions and be active. Emphasis will be placed on ball control, receiving, shielding, passing, turning, creative moves and shooting on goal.
