Lil’ Kickers Class Descriptions

Lil’ Kickers is a child development program for children between 18 months and 7 years old. Our 50 minute weekly classes include a combination of soccer-based drills and creative, age-appropriate games designed to enhance motor skills and promote healthy activity. Lil’ Kickers classes are categorized as follows.

If you have any questions about which class is right for your child, please visit us for a trial class and a Lil’ Kickers instructor will be happy to assess your child’s level and place him or her in the appropriate class.

Bunnies (18-24 mos) classes guide toddlers in learning basic soccer skills while building fundamentals such as balance and coordination. Classes incorporate activities that are geared toward a toddler’s unique way of learning and include parachutes, bubbles, noodles, cones, lots of goal scoring and more. Adult participation is required.

Thumpers (25-35 mos) Parents and kids, led by one of our instructors, play organized games together to develop listening skills, balance, ball skills and foot-eye coordination. Thumpers is the ideal next step for Bunnies veterans and a perfect introduction to Lil’ Kickers for new players. Adult participation is required.

Cottontails (2.5-3.5 yrs) is a class designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Thumpers class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without a parent or caregiver. The Cottontails curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball skills. Cottontails classes also offer another component – helping your child build a sense of independence. As children progress through the session and become ready for more independence, parents can choose to transition to a less active role in the class, helping prepare the child to transition to the next level. Adult participation is required.

Hoppers (3-4 yrs) classes are designed to be fun and fast paced. Classes focus on building balance, coordination and fundamental soccer skills through creative play and also help develop listening skills, cooperation and teamwork. Hoppers classes are the first class where children participate independently.

Jackrabbits (3-4 yrs) classes are designed to help transition children into team play. Children play creative games to develop fundamental soccer skills and will also be introduced to more one-ball oriented games and scrimmaging. The focus of the scrimmages will be to help players understand how to apply skills in different situations and building teamwork. Some small sided non-competitive soccer games are introduced.

Micro (4-9 yrs) classes include 15-20 minutes of instruction and 20-25 minutes of non-competitive scrimmaging.

Micro 4/5 classes are for four and five year olds with previous soccer experience who are ready for more of a challenge. Players learn more advanced fundamental soccer skills through fun, age-appropriate and creative skill building games and have the opportunity to practice those skills in non-competitive scrimmages.

Micro 6/7 classes are for six and seven year olds with previous soccer experience who are ready for more of a challenge. Classes balance the use of fun games and technical drills with non-competitive scrimmaging to teach new skills each week.
