NEW! Start Smart Soccer (Age 3)                

Start Smart Soccer is a developmentally appropriate introductory soccer program for children 3 years old. Start Smart Programs, created by the National Alliance for Youth Sports, help kids get ready for sports and succeed in life. It is an innovative step-by-step approach that builds confidence and self-esteem in a fun and safe sports environment. It was developed by top motor skill development specialists in the field of youth sports. Parent-child groups perform motor skill tasks that gradually build confidence in children while they are having fun at the same time. Each Start Smart Program utilizes the Start Smart Sports Readiness Test to help parents objectively measure kids’ abilities. As the program progresses and children show improvement, the skills and exercises are altered so that each child remains challenged. Parents spend quality time together with their child while learning how to properly teach and support them in sports. Start Smart participants will develop proper motor skills that will allow them to enjoy and succeed in their youth sports future!
