Lil Kickers Soccer League

 

Designed for girls and boys ages 3 to 7, Lil Kickers Soccer Leagues provide kids with the opportunity to develop as players in an age-appropriate game environment. Each week teams play small-sided games that are coached and guided by Lil Kickers Coaches. No scores are kept or standings posted. The focus is on building soccer skills, applying those skills to team play, learning about sportsmanship and teamwork and above all having fun.

Lil’ Kickers at Maracana

 

Our mission is to inspire! Lil’ Kickers is an award-winning child development program that uses soccer to help children ages 18 months to 12 years tackle important developmental milestones through age-appropriate and fun-filled activities. We inspire kids to be active, strong, confident and well-balanced in order to unleash their awesome both on and off the field.

Classes are 50-minutes and are led by highly trained, energetic coaches who engage kids and help maintain their enthusiasm by challenging and encouraging them to learn and accomplish new things – preparing them for school, playdates, team sports, and beyond. More than one million kids have participated in Lil’ Kickers across the country.

Bunnies ( 18 - 24 months )

Parent / Child

Thumpers ( 2 - 3 years )

Parent / Child

Cottontails ( 2.5 - 3.5 years )

Parent / Child

Bunnies classes introduce toddlers to soccer with games that allow them to run, play as a  group and kick a ball. Geared toward a toddler’s unique way of learning, they learn balance and coordination.

  • 50-minute class

  • Parent participation is required

  • Child/coach ratio: 12:1 (with parents on field)

Thumpers and their parents play organized games together to develop listening skills, balance, cooperation, sharing, ball skills and foot-eye coordination. Thumpers is the ideal next step for Bunnies veterans who are not yet old enough for the Hoppers level, and a perfect introduction to LiL’ Kickers for new players.

Cottontails is designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Thumpers class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without a parent or caregiver. The Cottontails curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball kicking in addition to helping build a sense of independence. As children progress through the session and become ready for more independence, parents can choose to transition to a less active role in the class.

Hoppers ( 3 - 4 years )

Beginner

Jackrabbits ( 3 - 4 years )

Intermediate

Micro ( 4 - 9 years )

Intermediate

Hoppers classes are fun and fast-paced, focusing on improving balance, coordination, and fundamental soccer skills. We utilize creative games to help kids develop listening skills, cooperation, and teamwork. Hoppers classes are the first class where children participate independently.

  • 50-minute class

  • Child/coach ratio: 7:1

Jackrabbits classes are designed to help transition children into non-competitive team play. Children learn basic soccer skills (dribbling, passing, trapping, scoring) and are introduced to more one-ball- oriented games and scrimmaging. Scrimmages focus on building teamwork and helping players understand how to apply skills in different situations. Some non-competitive soccer games are introduced.

  • Child/coach ratio: 7:1

Micro Classes are developmental and non-competitive for intermediate players. Proper soccer techniques are progressively introduced and as kids grow and master various skills, they are introduced to more complex soccer skills. Micro Classes are for kids who have played soccer before either in Lil’ Kickers or another program.
