Our Pre-K classes are the first chance for young soccer players to learn some moves and skills that will not only help them to become good players in the future, but give them a love for the game of soccer itself. The All Star FC coaches will teach moves such as stop and roll, tunnel turn, drag back, circle-take, and fake-take, within a fun atmosphere. The players will enjoy games such as cone monster, pirate ship and candy store and will further develop their listening skills and ability to follow instructions.
As the kids develop through the program they will be introduced to playing small-sided soccer games. This will give them a chance to be more competitive and learn to play as a team. The coaches will not count the score or worry about who scores the most goals but focus on the players improving their skills and more importantly having fun.
