ALL INDIVIDUAL REGISTRATION IS NOW ONLINE!
Small Sided Training Academy - ages 6* - 8 (6 sessions)
Each hour session will consist of 25 minutes of skill training followed by 25 minutes of small sided games
Individual fee: $75
Small-sided soccer is played by and for children, and is endorsed by the U.S. Soccer Federation. Our program will allow kids to get numerous more touches on the ball compared to an 8v8 game. More ball contact, less bunching, more learning, more fun.
This program has a track record of developing players that are typically ahead of their peers when it comes time to tryout for club-level teams.
We are no longer accepting team registrations (only individuals accepted) for this program, however, you can still request to play with up to 5 friends but each player must fill out a registration form.
*Most 5 year olds are NOT ready for this program. We allow 5 year olds if they have already completed one of our future stars program classes and our staff coach gives the "OK" that they are ready.
These sessions take place on Saturday Mornings. Time is TBD
Session 1: Nov 5 - Dec 17
Session 2: Jan 7 - Feb 11
Session 3: Feb 18 - March 25 REGISTER HERE
SOCCER STARS PROGRAM
Ages 3 - 6
The Soccer Stop Sportplex Soccer Stars program is an all encompassing program where each class is specifically designed to enhance the social, emotional and physical development occurring at each age. We teach skills in a language children can understand, present skills in a way that captures their attention and set standards that are high, yet achievable, but more importantly we make learning fun. Although we focus on soccer, this is a program that stresses team work, listening skills, following directions, as well as hand/foot/eye coordination, motor skills, and basic soccer skills. The emphasis is on FUN and group participation. Registration includes 8 classes, a T-shirt and small treat at the end of each class. Classes will last 35-45 minutes depending on what we can get out of the kids. The final time of the hour is spent with familiy being invited on to the field to kick the ball around with their little ones.
