PRE-K SOCCER

“Kiddie Kickers”

Program InfoIMG_4261Our 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!
