Joeys

Joeys classes introduce toddlers to soccer with games that allow them to run, play as a group and kick a ball. They gain basic soccer skills while building fundamentals such as balance and coordination. Classes incorporate activities that are geared toward a toddler's unique way of learning and include parachutes, bubbles, noodles, cones, lots of goal scoring and more.

  • Classes are 50 minutes long.
  • The ratio for Joeys classes is 15:1 with parents on the field.
  • Adult participation is required.

Wallabies

Parents and kids, led by one of our instructors, play organized games together to develop listening skills, balance, ball skills and foot-eye coordination. Wallabies is the ideal next step for Joeys veterans and a perfect introduction to Kickaroos for new players.

  • Classes are 50 minutes long.
  • The ratio for Wallabies classes is 12:1 with parents on the field.
  • Adult participation is required.

Boomers

Boomers is a class designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Wallabies class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without a parent or caregiver. The Boomers curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball kicking skills. Boomers classes also offer another component—helping your child build a sense of independence. As children progress through the session and become ready for more independence, parents can choose to transition to a less active role in the class.

  • Classes are 50 minutes long.
  • The ratio for Boomers classes is 7:1 (14:2) with parents on the field.
  • Adult participation is required.

Bouncers

Bouncers classes are designed to help transition children into non-competitive team play. Children play creative games to develop fundamental soccer skills and will also be introduced to more one-ball oriented games and scrimmaging. The focus of the scrimmages will be to help players understand how to apply skills in different situations and building teamwork. Some small sided non-competitive soccer games are introduced. ​

  • Classes are 50 minutes long.
  • The ratio for Bouncers is 7:1.

Jacks

Jacks classes are for five and six year-olds who have not played a lot of soccer before, or who respond better to a low-key environment. Classes build basic soccer skills (dribbling, passing, trapping, scoring) and develop a sense of confidence on the field. Players will also learn sportsmanship and team play. Some small-sided, yet non-competitive soccer games are played to enhance learning how to apply skills in game situations.

  • Jacks classes are 50 minutes long
  • The ratio for Jacks classes is 12:1

Skippers

  • Classes are 50 minutes with 15-20 minutes of instruction and 20-25 minutes of non-competitive scrimmaging.
  • The ratio for Skippers is 12:1
