The Young Champions soccer program emphasizes skill-building and team work. Soccer students learn all the ball-handling skills necessary to play and enjoy soccer. Participants gain self-confidence, improve coordination, have fun and make friends. All students play soccer and everyone is a winner! Soccer tournaments are held at the end of each session. All students are invited to compete. Boys and girls ages 5 and above are invited to enroll in this program.
Soccer classes meet once a week. Soccer balls, shin guards, jerseys, and apparel are available for purchase at class and online.
Awards & Advancement
Each session, soccer students improve existing skills and learn new soccer techniques.
Soccer students advance from Stars to Super Stars to All Stars to Elite All Stars. Students receive a plaque and certificate for their achievements.
Perfect attendance is rewarded at the end of each soccer session. Students missing a lesson may take a make-up lesson and still receive the perfect attendance award! To make up a missed lesson, students take 2 classes back-to-back prior to the end of the session. Students may take the class prior to their normal class time or take the class following their normal class time. Please see the coach for more information.
Competitions & Tournaments
All students are prepared and invited to participate in our competitive soccer events held on Sundays at the end of each session. Students compete with Young Champions students of similar age and skill level. Everyone goes home a winner! All competitors receive a participation trophy and compete for 1st - 4th place awards.
The Young Champions raffle is a great opportunity to earn uniforms and other items available for sale at class. Students receive donations for raffle tickets from mom, dad, other relatives, neighbors and friends. Revenue from ticket donations is used to purchase merchandise recommended by coaches. Raffle donations may also be used to pay for tournament & spectator fees.
