SportStars Youth Soccer Program Information

Our Kids Sports Program Info At A Glance

Our programs vary greatly depending on the age of the child. Regardless of the youngest or the oldest, our coaches work on a 10 week rotating curriculum that focuses on key outcomes for that week. The program rotates so one missed week is not detrimental and children can join anytime. For example, they may have missed "left foot kicks" but that will come around again.

The nature of our programs and coaching is also such that competitive kids are encouraged and challenged by the coaches while introductory children are supported by the coaches.

Toddler Soccer Program

Toddler Soccer is for parents toddlers aged 18 months to 2 ½ years looking to try soccer or an activity possibly for the first time. Children may or may not be comfortable leaving Mom or Dad and a supporting hand from the Parent is encouraged. Our coaches support children through different games focused on learning basic agility such as balance or kicking. Children will naturally be learning colors and counting throughout.a Most importantly, this is an exciting opportunity for children to become independent and "learn how to be coached."

PreSchool Soccer Program

PreSchool Soccer, children soccer players 2 ½ to 3 ½ years old, builds on the toddler program. While the games are similar, the expectations are different. Children may be supported by parents for a few classes but by about the 3rd class should be fully independent from Mom or Dad. Most children will understand instruction and many begin to thrive in the program. At this point parents should expect that the program is 80% fun and 20% soccer many drills barely resembling the game.

Girls and Boys Soccer Program

Girls and Boys Soccer, for those aged 3 ½ to 5 years old, begins to focus on teamwork and after several sessions may introduce the concept of a "soccer game." Parents should be aware that children at this age rarely pass and certainly don't function as a team. Our coaches are instructed that it is better to change the game than to promote "fun anarchy."

Youth Soccer & u9/u10 Programs

These programs, youth soccer players aged 7-9 and 9-11, build upon the kids program above but with greater honing of skills and a higher percentage of game play. for those wondering between us and a soccer club or an academy we focus on two things. 1) We think we do a better job with the non-rep players. 2) We invest more into our young kids (those aged under 12) than the clubs that invest heavily into the senior teams.
