Soccer Friends USA offers small class sizes and an excellent coach to child ratio; which guarantees lots of individual attention and helps to boost the confidence of our youngest participants.
These classes are offered to anyone who is interested in getting their child involved in soccer. They are once-weekly classes, (you can sign up for more than once a week if your schedule allows) over a set number of weeks and held in our various locations throughout Queens. All you have to do is click on our book a class to find a location, day, time, and price package that works for you and your child.
As an extension of our Soccer Friends USA mission of teaching children valuable life lessons through sports and physical education, we are now introducing our 18-24 month program for parents/guardians and their toddlers. Our goal in this class is to teach children gross and fine motor skills that are crucial to healthy development while promoting a stronger bond between parent/guardian and child. Each class will focus on fun, energetic activities such as soccer, music, dancing, and gymnastics. Participation is expected from both parent/guardian and child throughout the entire class.
*Note: About 60-70% of our instructions will be directed at the parent/guardian, NOT the child.
For children between ages 2 and 4, the goals of our curriculum are to teach movement and dribbling. Our coaches will focus on balance and coordination games and stretches to teach the children to move and be flexible with different parts of their bodies. We then move into our skills section which will focus on dribbling and movement.
Our Soccer Friends USA mascots, ISA the Giraffe, ELI the Elephant and BUSTER the Lion, will all be there to cheer on the children and sometimes they will join in and play. Isa the Giraffe loves to play soccer because she has long neck which she can use to jump and head the ball. If she scores a goal, she loves to do a dance to celebrate. Eli the Elephant likes to stomp around the goal and save shots with his trunk. He loves playing soccer and is thrilled to be a part of the team. Buster the Lion likes to run fast and use his powerful kick. He’s a little bit clumsy, so he is always scraping his knees and getting boo boos.
