Our Safe Fit soccer program follows the traditional soccer model and modifies it so that players maintain appropriate social distancing at all times. This program is appropriate for players of all levels, ages 2-15. Whereas in a traditional soccer program players will scrimmage and engage in contact play, our Safe Fit Soccer focuses on individual skill development and competitions.
Our youngest players will learn the basics of kicking, dribbling and the FUNdamentals of soccer. We will have theme days where we may imagine going to the ice cream store, visiting the zoo to identify animals, singing our favorite songs or visiting a vegetable garden. Players will work on agility and gross motor coordination by jumping (or walking) over hurdles and working on speed ladder challenges. Our tot class also focuses on teamwork and cooperation as we choose team names and cooperate from a safe distance. Our classes for ages 1-3 are parent/caregiver and me classes.” During these classes, all adults will need to wear masks and maintain proper social distancing with their child from other participants in the class.
Our older players experience the benefits of being a team member by working together from a safe social distance and trying to complete the challenges faster than the other team. Participants will develop their footwork, passing ability and shooting ability. Our model allows us to tailor each class, creating programs that are suitable for the novice player as well as the elite athlete. Players are encouraged to attempt new skills and take risks via positive feedback. Working with a partner(s) at a safe distance, each team will focus on scoring more goals, dribbling faster or completing more passes than the opposing team. Regardless of your child’s level at the beginning of the session, it is our objective to help them take their game to the next level while promoting a love for the game.
