Tiny Feet Soccer (Tuesday)

Tiny Feet Soccer is an innovative sports and exercise program providing young children with the opportunity to learn through play and exploration in a fun, age-appropriate, and friendly environment. Tiny Feet Soccer program provides many opportunities for young children to spend most of their time engaged in free play — running, jumping, chasing, and kicking. Our priority is to ensure that children have fun while participating in playful exercises, games, and activities in a pressure-free atmosphere while they learn the basics of soccer.

Our program objectives are as follows:
  • To introduce young children to soccer in a safe, inclusive and non-competitive environment.
  • Show young children that sport and physical activity are fun.
  • Develop and enhance age-appropriate gross motor skills, coordination and correct posture.
  • Teach the importance of good sportsmanship and teamwork.

This unique program is an introduction to sports in a fun non-competitive environment. The concepts taught are basic and time spent on each activity is limited in order to maintain the attention of the children. Emphasis is placed on the development of gross-motor skills, listening skills, learning to take turns and following directions. Some children at this age are more than ready to take part in a structured environment and will actively participate in each club session. As children gain confidence and learn our routines, their participation level will naturally increase.
