First Kickers

We use a game format based upon research and recommendations from National Coaching Programs and Educational research.

The intent is to make the soccer ball their favorite toy.  Players are assigned teams and training games are used where all players are actively involved with a ball. There are no lines of kids waiting their ‘turn’.

The games are age appropriate and designed for them to use their imagination, together with their ball. The session ends with a mini-match of 3 v 3 with small goals and no goalkeepers.
