Parents and kids, led 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.

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

Cottontails is a class designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Thumpers class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without a parent or caregiver. The Cottontails curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball kicking. Cottontails 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.

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.

Skills Academy– Advanced Level

Skills Academy classes allow children to develop skills needed on the soccer field.  Children should have an understanding of soccer, field awareness, and an ability to work with one ball on the field before attending a Skills class.   Skills Academy classes are designed to give kids an edge in their soccer playing ability.  Ball control, shooting, dribbling, speed, and teamwork all come into play as kids work with a coach to develop skills that will set them apart.

(Please note, that Skills academy classes are by coach approval, if children don’t demonstrate necessary skills, they may be asked to switch levels) “
