Lil' Kickers is a Soccer-Based Child Development Classes For Kids Ages 18 Months to 9 Years!

Lil' Kickers was developed by soccer professionals working alongside child development experts. The classes promote play in a physically active, social and non-competitive environment that fosters positive self-esteem and accomplishment. All classes are indoors at Sports Connection Locations in Charlotte, NC.

Research indicates that children who are involved in sports typically have a higher self-esteem, a more developed sense of cooperation and often make better life choices. Our curriculum is founded on renowned child development theories, years of experience working with children, and FUN for the child and parent. We believe strongly in parent participation and we honor the commitment parents have made to help their children become the best they possibly can be.

This class is a transitional class from the parent/child format of Thumpers to the independent Hoppers class where they begin to be alone on the field with a coach. Cottontail's curriculum is designed to incorporate parents in the activities towards the beginning of the session and slowly develop the child's independence and confidence without parents' ongoing involvement in the class. Class is 50 minutes long.
