Class Descriptions

We offer soccer classes in different age ranges.  We are not a soccer league. Our youngest soccer class (18–36 months) is a parent participation class. The other classes are 3-5 years, 3-6 years and 6-8 years.

The 3-5 year, 3-6 year, and 6-8 year soccer classes the parents watch from the sideline. If your child is in a non-parent participation class and needs your assistance because they are shy, scared, etc. it is ok for the parent to temporarily be on the field to help ease their child into the class.  The goal is for your child to play in the class without needing parental support on the field.

18–36 months parent/
child classes

Each class is 60 minutes long which combines 15 minutes of free play (open to family and friends) followed by 45 minutes of structured physical activities (with and without the ball). The activities are designed to help promote motor skills (balance, coordination, running control) and social skills (listening, teamwork, sharing). From experience, we have found that children at this age learn best through repetition and Kinder Kickz Soccer will provide a series of games and challenges that the children can accomplish better each week.

Each child will need one active adult as their partner to participate with them for the entire class every week. Kinder Kickz Soccer uses fun props (balls, balloons, colorful equipment, bubbles, parachutes) to keep the class engaged and excited to return the
following week.
The Kinder Kickz Soccer curriculum was developed by Renee Ziemer who has a B.S. in Physical Education and Masters of Education.

3–5 years, 3–6 years,
6–8 year classes

We offer 3–5 year, 3–6 year, and 6–8-year classes. These classes are 60 minutes long which combine 10-15 minutes of free play (open to family and friends) followed by 45-50 minutes of structured activities to help teach basic soccer skills (passing, kicking, dribbling, juggling, scoring, basic scrimmage play), along with motor skills (balance, coordination, running control) and social skills (listening, building confidence, teamwork, sharing, sportsmanship).
Each age group will be introduced to new activities, which challenge them in a non-competitive and positive learning environment. Kinder Kickz Soccer uses fun props to keep the class engaged and excited to return the following week.

Make Ups

If your child misses a class during the session they are registered for, they can make it up by attending another class in their age group that is not sold out.  The make up needs to be done during the session they are registered for. Please contact renee@kinderkickz.com to arrange a make up.

Restrooms

Please have your child use the restroom before arriving at class as most of the parks we play at do not have public restrooms.

When A Class
Gets Cancelled

It is not normal for us to cancel classes. However, due to COVID restrictions and possible weather-related cancellations (air quality, rain, field closure by the city etc) we may be forced to cancel a class. If we cancel one class during the session due to the previous reasons noted, it will not be rescheduled. If we cancel two or more classes during the session due to the previous reasons noted, they will either be made up by extending the session or by issuing a credit voucher for a future class(es). No refunds will be given.
