ALL INDIVIDUAL REGISTRATION IS NOW ONLINE! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER YOUR CHILD
Each hour session will consist of 25 minutes of skill training followed by 30 minutes of small sided games
individual fee: $80
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.
This program will be altered slightly for this winter. Each child will be placed on a team and get a team specific schedule with different "game" times each week. A 12 player program in one hour blocks for 2-4 hours will be safer than 50 kids all at once for an hour.

SOCCER STARS PROGRAM 2020/21
Ages 3 - 6
Program is currently suspended due to covid. It may start again in January
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.
THE STARS – 3 and 4 yr. old class (8 sessions)
