Why training with Lil Kickers?

Lil’ Kickers started in 1999 with the desire to build a kids’ program that was fundamentally sound and outrageously fun. Using world renowned child development theories, child development professionals, experienced coaches and the expertise that comes along with thousands of hours of working with children, Lil Kickers’ curriculum introduces kids to soccer and so much more. The program helps develop a child’s social, emotional, and cognitive skills while providing physical exercise and developing players who are good sports and good teammates — on and off the soccer field.

For Sofive, Lil’ Kickers was an obvious partner, as we fundamentally believe that although soccer can become a true passion, it is before anything else a great way to connect with others, have fun, and develop feelings of camaraderie, accomplishment and self-confidence.

The classes are led by high-energy coaches and are packed with creative games structured to help kids tackle age-appropriate developmental milestones - the perfect way to start a soccer journey or simply have fun with other kids from the same neighborhood!

Hear it from them!

“I think this is a wonderful program run by great coaches. I like the small class size and the involvement each kid gets with the coaches.”

“I think it is great! My daughter is really shy and I think it is helping her become more confident. This is the first class that she willingly participates in!”

“My son has enjoyed this program more than any other he has been in, and he’s played A LOT!”

“As a (former) elementary school teacher with a degree in Child Development, I’m beyond impressed with his ability to wrangle three year olds, have them listen, teach them new skills, have them actually follow his instructions and do all of this in a kind, caring, and SILLY manner! Soccer is very important to me and I’m so thrilled that my child now loves it as much as he does- and that is thanks to such a positive experience with our Lil’ Kickers Coach!!!”

“All 3 of our kids have been in Lil’ Kickers because they love it. And because we could see them growing in skill and confidence.”

“They LOVE the imaginative games that are teaching soccer skills without them realizing it. It is perfect for their age. They love their coaches and look forward to soccer every week! Highly recommend- especially for those younger ones who need to start learning how to listen to other adults!”
