This program is for any 3 to 5-year-old player who likes to be active. Our program curriculum uses fun games and activities to broadly introduce futsal concepts and team sports. Kinder participants will use their hands as well as their feet to learn these concepts. As this is an introduction to the sport, there are no special skills, knowledge, or equipment needed.
What to expect: Many parents who register for the first time, are unsure how their child will do in the program. Sometimes our little ones are shy for the first couple of classes. We suggest that parents, siblings, or an adult stick around for the first class, and be willing to jump in to help your little guy or gal if they are feeling particularly shy. It doesn't take long for most participants to feel less anxious about being away from mom or dad.
Sundays, 8/7 - 8/28, 1:50pm - 2:35pm, $68 (R) / $74 (NR)
This program is for any 6 & 7-year-old player. Our Juniors program is a bridge between the more technical work of our Cadets program (for 8 to 13-year-olds) and the heavily game-focused sessions of our Kinder Kickers program (3 to 5-year-olds). Our curriculum uses fun games and activities to introduce and refine core futsal skills, but more attention is focused on skill development and precision than in our foundational, Kinder Kickers program. These programs are high-energy and encourage your child to challenge themselves to improve their foundational skills. While still considered an introductory session to futsal, no special skills or knowledge are needed.
Cadets I & II
Ages 8-11 years
Sundays, 8/7 - 8/28, 2:40pm - 3:30pm, $73 (R) / $80 (NR)
This program is for any 8 - 11-year-old player. While incorporating fewer games into sessions than our Junior Skills program, the focus is primarily given to skill development and execution. Our curriculum incorporates fun challenges and multi-skill combinations to continually challenge players as they work through a series of exercises that introduce basic to advanced 1v1 foot skills. Focus is also given to increasing proficiency in core skills and correcting bad habits. Players work in an environment where they are encouraged to be creative and to gain confidence in using a variety of skills. This program is intended for all players, from new to futsal to competitive level players.
