FirstStepSoccer With Coach Dan
This program is where many of our students experience a soccer atmosphere for the first time. These athletes are our youngest in the Academy and are a joy to introduce the game to. Here, they are challenged with fun drills requiring them to think on their own (decision-making), and use both feet (insides, outsides, and bottoms). All drills are age-appropriate and achievable and intended to boost their self-confidence.
All classes will follow the county guidelines for distancing and no more than 12 kids per class.
