Minis Program for 3-4 Year Olds
Our Minis program is designed for 3-4 year olds getting to touch the ball in a playful soccer environment. The participants get to familiarize themselves with foot and ball skills. There is a lot of hands-on coaching and demonstration as well as manipulation to enhance muscle memory for ball managing skills. The coach and kids play a form of soccer at the end of each session. This is where the kids get exposed to the game concept as well as foster a healthy attitude toward competition.
Due to the state recently easing restrictions of COVID regulations in outdoor youth sports, our programs now include contact and passing the ball. Parents will read about our return to play and safety procedures and protocol during the registration process.
Juniors Program (5-6 Year olds)
The Juniors Program
Our Juniors program is currently designed for 5-6 year olds. The focus is to teach young soccer players attacking soccer skills which include dribbling, passing, trapping, and shooting, as well as continue to develop the concept of the game. It is a continuum of the Alpine Minis Preschool Program. The sessions are individualized and optimize soccer development and growth for children from all skill levels.
New this fall we are offering a scrimmage option for this program at an additional cost. It will include five scrimmages on a weekend day through the 11-week season. The scrimmage schedule will be released at the beginning of the season. In each registration you can select the weekend option if desired.
Academy (6-7 Year olds)
Please note, the Academies are open to boys and girls.
The objective of our Academies is to gradually prepare our younger players to take their first steps towards competitive soccer beginning at the under 8 age group. Training sessions will be two times per week with each session lasting 1 hour 15 minutes. There will also be 4-5 intra-squad weekend games per season. Training curriculum will be centered upon developing coordination, agility and ball mastery, as these are the key building blocks required to play the game of soccer. Your child will learn how to interact with other children in the invaluable environment of team sports by means of fun, energetic and challenging activities and games specifically designed for this age group. The Academies are gender separated, and they are coached by our professional coaches. We are confident that your child will enjoy a fun, exiting and rewarding experience learning how to play the world's “beautiful game.”
