Five programs are being offered:
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 to develop their physical, mental, and social skills in a non-competitive environment.
This program is designed for children who have taken a Lil’ Boots class in the past and are in need of additional challenges beyond what is offered in our traditional Lil’ Boots program. This program builds on the fundamentals of our traditional Lil’ Boots class with children continuing to work on coordination and ball work.
The Lil’ Boots 4x4 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 in a non-competitive environment. Each practice consists of 30 minutes of skill training by professional coaches and 30 minutes of league play.
An intermediate program that focuses on basic individual skills such as ball mastery and 1v1 moves. It is the missing “bridge” between our Lil’ Boots program and the more advanced Player Development program and consists of age-appropriate activities that will ensure a smooth transition to the next level.
This program is designed for players who are interested in developing their individual skills and technical ability. It gives players an opportunity to refine existing skills and learn new ones. Players learn through close interaction with professional trainers, technical drills, and dynamic activities proven to create healthy soccer habits.

Philosophy: Sound fundamentals — for your child to execute at a high level they must first master the basics: footwork, ball handling, shooting form, etc. We focus on the fundamentals of the game in a competitive and positive environment — ball handling, dribble moves, shooting, finishing moves, passing, defense, speed and agility, etc. During a game, we want your child to be able to effectively use the drills and skills learned. We want to improve your child’s current skill set and turn weaknesses into strengths so he/she has the confidence to be the player he/she wants to be.
