Program Details

EDHSC U4/U5 Itty-Bitty Kickers Program:

This program is for players born in 2019 and 2020.  

Itty-Bitty Kickers is a specialized 8 week clinic style grassroots program designed to cultivate young players by building a soccer foundation beginning as young as age 3. Our Itty-Bitty Program will begin building a positive team culture and consists of soccer activities that will help develop large motor skills, balance, listening, and changing direction through technical skill exercises and free play! 

The format of play is focused on fun and learning skills.  At this young age it's important to focus on fun while also learning new soccer skills.  Grouping the kids by age and playing fun soccer games is a great way for us to keep them engaged and learning.  We will end the clinics in scrimmage type formats, however this is not the best way for our littles to develop the majority of their skills so you won't see this done often.  It's something we build up to and finish the 8-10 week clinics with.

The Fun part about all this is watching your littles enjoy interaction with others while you relax in your lawn chair after a long week.  It's really a blast to sit back and enjoy the littles laughing and playing soccer while they learn some great skills with our trainers.

Program details: Currently these practices are one day a week (Friday) for 50 minutes.  The Itty-Bitty's are grouped together in different groups with fun trainers to help guide them through games and activities.

Practice times are as follows:

Fridays:

  • 4:30-5:20

  • 5:30-6:20

1. Fall Itty-Bitty Program: Begins in August

Registration for the Fall program will begin in April.

This program will be for 2019 & 2020 birth years

2. Spring Itty-Bitty Program: Begins in March

Registration for the Spring program will begin in November.

This program will be for 2019, 2020 and 2021 birth years.  This season will allow for the 5 year olds to be in a transition period to prepare them for the fall regular rec program schedule.  This will mean their Friday training will end in a scrimmage format with the introduction of forming teams.  At this age scoring on opposing teams is a new concept.
