Lil’ Kicker Class Descriptions

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Bunnies (18-24 Months) Parent & Child Classes
Bunnies classes are a fun introduction to the Lil’ Kickers program. Toddlers and parents explore basic soccer and movement skills together. Classes include parachute activities, bubbles, lots of goal scoring and the famous cone towers. Classes are 40 minutes long.

Thumpers (2-3 Years) Parent & Child Classes
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 who are not yet old enough for the Hoppers level, and a perfect introduction to Lil’ Kickers for new players who are just barely 3 years old. Classes are 40 minutes long.

Cottontails (2 ½ – 3 ½ Years) Parent & Child Transition
This class is designed to be a transitional class for children between the ages of 2 ½ and 3 ½ years old who are in need of a more challenging lesson plan than what the Thumper classes offer, but who are not quite ready for the independence of a Hoppers class. Classes are 50 minutes long.

Hoppers (3 & 4 Years) Beginning
Three and four year-olds get a fast-paced, fun exposure to the most popular sport in the world. Classes focus on foot-eye coordination, dribbling, scoring and balance. Hoppers classes will also introduce the concepts of teamwork and cooperation. Hoppers will not play any competitive soccer games. Classes are 50 minutes long.

Jackrabbits (3 & 4 Years) Intermediate
Jackrabbits is a class designed for three and four year-olds who have either taken a session of Hoppers or have other soccer experience. Jackrabbits classes will focus on more complex ball skills (trapping and passing). Some small-sided soccer games will be introduced. Classes are 50 minutes long.

Big Feet (5 & 6 Years) Beginning
Big Feet classes are for five and six year-olds who have not played soccer before. These classes concentrate on giving beginning kids a set of basic soccer skills (dribbling, passing, trapping, scoring) and some confidence on the field of play. Kids will be introduced to the ideas of sportsmanship and team play. Kids will play some small-sided soccer games and be encouraged to progress into Micro Leagues. Classes are 50 minutes long.

Micro Leagues (4-9 Years)
Micro Leagues are non-competitive, developmental leagues for kids 4-9 years designed to enhance individual and team skills; with an emphasis on fun and safety. Micro Leagues are for kids who have played soccer before either in Lil’ Kickers or another program. The class break down is 15-20 min. of warm-up plus instruction and 20-25 min. of games. Classes are 50 minutes in long.
