Class Descriptions

Bunnies (18-24 Months) - Parent & Child Classes

Bunnies classes are a fun introduction to the Lil' Kickers program. Toddlers and parents explore basic soccer and movement skills together. Classes include parachute activities, bubbles, lots of goal scoring, and the famous cone towers!  Bunnies classes are 40 minutes long.


Thumpers (25 - 35 Months) - Parent & Child Classes

Parents and kids, lead by one of our instructors, play organized games together to develop listening skills, balance, ball skills and foot-eye coordination. Thumpers is the ideal next step for Bunnies veterans who are not yet old enough for the Hoppers level, and a perfect introduction to Lil' Kickers for new players who are just barely 3 years old. Thumpers classes are 40 minutes long.


Cottontails (2.5 - 3.5 Years) - Parent & Child Classes

Parents and kids, led by one of our coaches, play organized games together to develop listening skills, balls skills, and foot-eye coordination. 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.


Hoppers (3 & 4 Years) - Beginners

Three and four year-olds get a fast-paced, fun exposure to the most popular sport in the world. Classes focus on foot-eye coordination, dribbling scoring and balance. Hoppers classes will also introduce the concepts of teamwork and cooperation. Hoppers will not play any competitive soccer games. Hoppers classes are 50 minutes long.


Jackrabbits (3 & 4 Years) - Intermediate

Jackrabbits is a class designed for three and four year-olds who have either taken a session of Hoppers or have other soccer experience. Jackrabbits classes will focus on more complex ball skills (trapping and passing). Some small-sided soccer games will be introduced.  Jackrabbits classes are 50 minutes long.


Big Feet (5 & 6 Years) - Beginners

Big Feet classes are for five and six year-olds who have not played soccer before. These classes concentrate on giving beginning kids a set of basic soccer skills (dribbling, passing, trapping, scoring) and some confidence on the field of play. Kids will be introduced to the ideas of sportsmanship and team play. Kids will play some small-sided soccer games and be encouraged to progress into Micro Leagues.  Big Feet classes are 50 minutes long.


Micro Leagues (4-6 Years)

Micro Leagues are developmental leagues for kids 4-6 years designed to enhance individual and team skills; with an emphasis on fun and safety. Micro Leagues are for kids who have played soccer before either in Lil' Kickers or another program. In 50 minutes of class there will be 15-20 minutes of instruction and 20-25 minutes of games. No more than 4 players at a time on a team. Everyone gets equal playing time. There will be no goalies. We will not keep score or league standings.
