The CLASSIC program centers around creative and imaginative games. We will also highlight a positive character word each session such as respect, teamwork, and appreciation.
Three and four year olds enjoy playing with one another but occasionally still enjoy keeping to themselves. They are beginning to learn how to follow simple directions, recognize their own limits (ask for help), enjoy make-believe, often mimic adults, and seek praise. Transitions can be difficult, and children this age crave structure and routine. Our coaches will incorporate these traits, colors, animals, and many imaginative concepts as well as provide lots of praise and positive reinforcement. The focus will be on soccer skills (dribbling, passing, using different parts of the feet) as well as gross motor skills, like controlled running (starting, stopping, and turning), hopping, and alternating feet. At this age, we encourage everyone to use their feet as much as possible, and begin to provide the foundation needed to get started in soccer.
This age group will play a short scrimmage most weeks. Classes run between 40-50 minutes.
