First Kicks Soccer Training

Specially designed program for 2-8 year olds


Fall 2019 registration/dates will be posted by the end of the week of August 19.

The First Kicks program is a specially designed developmental program that introduces young players to the basic fundamental skills of soccer such as passing, shooting, receiving the ball, and running with the ball to learn the concept of team play. There will be lots of fun games played in this program.

This program incorporates soccer skills with motor, physical, mental and social skills in a positive and non-competitive environment. This program also builds self esteem, confidence, promotes sportsmanship and fair play while instilling a love and passion for the game of soccer.
