It is your child's first experience with soccer and the primary goal is fun. It is a non-competitive setting that will begin to teach your child soccer skills through numerous drills and games. Primarily, they work on co-ordination development, motor skills and confidence building. Your child will be taught such things as ball skills and control, shooting, and scoring in a team environment.
