Soccer Shots MINI is a high-energy program introducing children to fundamental soccer principles, such as using your feet, dribbling, balance, coordination, and the basic rules of the game. Through fun games, songs, and positive reinforcement, children will begin to experience the joy of playing soccer and being active.
Two year olds enjoy playing along side one another but usually keep to themselves. Exploring, noticing patterns, sorting, and stacking are all skills used by this age group to learn about the world around them. Our coaches will incorporate these skills, colors, animals, and other imaginative concepts as well as provide lots of praise and positive reinforcement. The focus will be on soccer skills (dribbling, passing) as well as gross motor skills (kicking, hopping) and fine motor skills (showing fingers for numbers “peace sign for two”, favoring one hand or foot over the other). Sometimes they will use their hands and that’s okay at this age.
We typically do not scrimmage at this age. Classes run between 30-40 minutes.
