What is the price? Classes are $15. The Annual Registration Fee is $25.
Can I join a class in the middle of a session? Yes! We offer open enrollment, so that you can join anytime and have your class fees prorated. This means that you pay only for the remaining class and not the full session fee.
What should my kids wear? Participants should wear comfortable clothes and indoor soccer shoes (no cleats) or plain tennis shoes. Shinguards are needed for Micro Classes and Micro Advanced classes. Lil' Kicker uniforms are sometimes offered promotionally or are available for purchase. Outfitting your child in Lil' Kickers garb is a fun way to make your child feel part of a team. Kids naturally appreciate looking like older uniformed kids and role models. Plus a uniform gives kids a sense of belonging because they look like others on the team.
How many girls and boys are in each class? Classes are co-ed, so the mix of boys and girls is based on who registers. If you have five or more players and we have enough field space, we are open to creating a special class for you with your requested mix of children.
What is the difference between a Hoppers and a Jackrabbits class? Hoppers is a class for beginning 3 and 4 year olds that helps develop individual skills. Jackrabbits is an intermediate class between the Hoppers classes for total beginners and Micro classes for school age kids who have had previous experience. In Jackrabbits, children play more one-ball oriented games to help them transition from individual skills to team skills. Some small-sided, non-competitive scrimmages are also introduced in Jackrabbits.
Do you provide all-girl classes? Lil' Kickers is coed; however, if you have five or more girls and we have available field space, we are open to satisfying your request.
Do you offer private classes? Subject to field availability, we are open to creating private classes for groups of five or more. But please realize that individual training is not part of the Lil' Kickers program!
If I register my child for a session, are we "guaranteed" a spot in the next session? No, all registrations are first come, first serve basis.
What kind of instructors do you have? Are they all licensed by some organization? All Lil' Kickers Coaches are carefully screened to ensure we provide quality, child-centered, high energy instruction. Each Coach goes through a background check and a rigorous training process, which includes child development training. Instructors may or may not be U.S.S.F. licensed.
How come they don't play more soccer in this program? While many soccer programs are busy using traditional soccer skill drills to drive home the fundamentals of soccer, we approach coaching from a child-centered perspective. Because of this perspective, we know that our main goal is to make learning fun for kids. We do this by putting instruction into a context children understand, using special techniques designed around how kids naturally learn. Lil' Kickers teaches your child the fundamentals of soccer, but focuses on developing the whole child. Our program helps develop social, emotional, and cognitive skills that result in our Lil Kickers becoming well-balanced and conscientious individuals on and off the soccer field.
