U3 - U6 Little Strikers Program

U3 - U6 Little Strikers Program – $185

The Little Strikers program is an introduction to the game for boys & girls ages 3-6.

The program is 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 Little Strikers program develops motor skills, cognitive abilities and peer relationships. We will challenge them with imaginative sessions, ask them to make their own decisions and allow them to progress at their own pace.


The Philosophy of the Little Striker 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 Little Strikers 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!
