Cubs Program 

Cubs Program is an engaging soccer foundation course designed
exclusively for the littlest athletes - children aged 3 and 4 years old.
This program is the first step into the world of soccer and sets the
stage for a lifelong love of the game.

Program Highlights:

  • Age-Appropriate Soccer Skills: The Cubs Program focuses on introducing your child to the basic skills of soccer. With a ball at their feet, children will learn to dribble, pass, and kick through play-based activities that emphasize fun and enjoyment over competition.
     

  • Motor Skill Development: In addition to soccer-specific skills, our curriculum is crafted to improve overall motor skills like balance, coordination, and agility – all critical elements for early childhood development.
     

  • Positive Environment: Our youngest players will experience a supportive and encouraging environment that celebrates every effort and every success, big or small.
     

  • Short, Engaging Sessions: Understanding the attention spans of 3 and 4-year-olds, each Cubs session is designed to keep them engaged. Sessions are short, dynamic, and full of action to ensure that every child participates and stays focused.
     

  • Safety First: Safety is paramount in the Cubs Program. All activities are designed with the age and capabilities of our young players in mind, with a focus on creating a safe learning environment.
     

  • Social Skills and Confidence: As children engage in the sport, they also learn valuable life skills such as teamwork, communication, and confidence, building a foundation that goes beyond the soccer field.
     

Program Structure:
 

The Cubs Program sessions are held weekly and run for a duration that suits the energy and attention span of this age group, ensuring that soccer is both fun and beneficial for their physical and social development.

Our aim is to ignite a passion for soccer while nurturing a strong foundation for physical activity and team interaction. It’s more than just soccer; it’s a stepping stone for growth, learning, and the joy of sports.
