Sunday Soccer with GoldenBoot

LiL’ Boots Program

Ages: 3-4

Gesher Jewish Day School
4800 Mattie Moore Court
Fairfax, VA 22030

The Lil Boots program is specially designed for your little one!  It provides a great introduction to the basic fundamentals of the game and just as importantly, team play. It allows children Ages 3-4 to develop their physical, mental and social skills in a non-competitive environment. The trainers are chosen based on their personality and their ability to work with very young players.
Fee: $145/ $130 member (includes t-shirt). Nonmembers should register directly through Golden Boot Soccer at

Join us for our Spring Soccer Program!

The J has teamed up with Tamir Linhart GoldenBoot Soccer to offer spring soccer programs and leagues for kids ages 3–10 at Gesher Jewish Day School’s newly renovated Bermuda grass field. The programs are run by GoldenBoot Soccer’s professional coaches.

LiL’ Boots 4x4 League
Ages: 5–6
The Lil’ Boots League offers the best of both worlds; professional know-how demonstrated through carefully selected developmental activities and the opportunity to allow the game to be the ultimate teacher.  With no score kept, the focus is on individual development, confidence building, and allowing each child the opportunity to come into their own as young players. The program consists of 30 minutes of skill training by professional soccer coaches and 30 minutes of league play.

Player Development
Ages: 7–10
The first step to becoming a complete soccer player is a solid technical base, especially for ages 7-10. This window in any young player’s development is by far the most crucial — and for this reason alone requires very specifically designed training. Players learn through close interaction with professional trainers, instructional demos, footwork training and dynamic activities proven to create healthy soccer habits.
