The Soccer Minis program is an introduction to the game for boys & girls ages U6-U7.
These programs are designed to get your child out on the pitch and to become familiar with the feel of the soccer ball. The sessions incorporate many young children’s games with which your child may already be familiar. The Soccer Minis program further evolves and develops the motor skills, cognitive abilities, and peer relationships of our players. We will challenge them with imaginative sessions, ask them to make their own decisions, and allow them to progress at their own pace. At Minis we began to incorporate small group thinking.
The Philosophy of the Soccer Minis Program is the Game/Activity approach. Children learn through play. The Game/Activity approach is designed to make fun, challenge, creativity, problem-solving, and motivation the primary goals of the experience. It taps into the children’s desires and encourages role-playing, imitation, risk-taking, and lots of action- all attributes that can be accomplished through games (ie. Red light Green light, Freeze Tag, Sharks, and Minnows). Traditional ‘drills’ are too static, requiring very limited decision making, and too much waiting in lines. Our Minis will be involved in activities that are dynamic and exciting with lots of freedom of movement. This approach maintains a child’s interest in soccer through ‘having fun with the ball’ while also enhancing creativity, decision-making, and physical skills!
