Our U5/U6* Academy Developmental Program is an excellent way to teach soccer to 4 and 5 year olds. This brings group training and game play to young girls and boys in a way that is fun and starts to build ball mastery skills and coordination.
Players meet once per week for a one hour session of instruction and fun. The emphasis in this batch of 5 sessions will be more play related to round off the season with a fun filled free play theme. Each session will have qualified coaches present.
