The AYSO Playground Soccer program introduces 3 and 4 year olds to soccer in a fun, pressure-free environment. Playground/School yard Soccer uses group activities, soccer themes, and parent participation to develop the fundamental motor skills that prepare kids for all sports. Players participate on a weekly basis with their parent (or other adult) working with them on the field.
This is NOT a mini World Cup experience. Do not expect 60 minutes of soccer games. The program uses soccer as the "teaching thread" to develop fundamental motor skills such as balance, running, jumping and throwing for three year olds. This is the foundation of sports success and an active lifestyle. Let your little one learn the beautiful game the right way!
Parent Participation is REQUIRED!
AYSO coaches lead sessions that create a fun, parent participatory atmosphere utilizing age appropriate activities.
The fee for our Playground Soccer program is $175.00 ($275 after 7/15 for Fall 2020 and after 1/31 for Spring 2021).
