Soccer

Pre-K Soccer • Ages 3 – 5-year-old boys & girls • View Class Times & Fees  IMG_4261
Our Pre-K classes are the first chance for young soccer players to learn some moves and skills that will not only help them become good players in the future but will also give them a love for the game of soccer itself. The All Star FC coaches will teach moves such as stop & roll, tunnel turn, drag back, circle-take and fake-take, all within a fun atmosphere. The players will enjoy games such as cone monster, pirate ship, and candy store. Players will further develop their listening skills, as well as their ability to follow instructions.

As the kids develop through the program, they will be introduced to playing small-sided soccer games. This will give them a chance to be more competitive and learn to play as a team. The coaches will not count the score, or worry about who scores the most goals, but instead focus on improving the player’s skills and more importantly, having fun!

 

Futsal • For Boys & Girls in grades 1 – 4 • View Class Times & Fees 
RegistrationIMG_4258 begins July 26
All Star FC and the Darien YMCA are excited to announce their new technical Futsal skills program. Futsal is a fast-paced form of soccer, which many world class players played in their youth; Messi, Pele, and Ronaldo all credit Futsal with playing a major role in their soccer development. Our program is designed to take all players to the next level of their game, ultimately making them a more confident and complete player.

Each session will be designed to develop the individual’s technical ability within the game. All Star FC’s curriculum is designed to emphasize the importance of basic skills; ball work, passing, shooting, and 1-v-1 moves. While we focus on skill development, we will end each session with a game encouraging the players to be “their own coach within the game.”
