Soccer Time Kids is a sports program specifically designed for children aged 1 to 5 years old. Our course will encourage children to participate in physical play in the form of soccer based activities in order to develop their early years gross motor skills. We are passionate about promoting physical play in young children. By helping your child get active, you help their body to develop, help them learn and start to develop their life long love for sport!
The Soccer Time Kids program features progressive educational lessons, incorporating shapes, number identification, colours and literacy throughout its sessions. Furthermore, as we encourage a positive learning environment, the social aspect of sport is integrated into our sessions allowing for preschoolers to build healthy relationships with their teammates, parents/guardians and coaches.
Our aim is for students from Soccer Time Kids to have experienced a fun environment that provides them with the confidence and skills to succeed with their sporting and life aspirations.
WHY SOCCER TIME KIDS?
As an educational sports program we have researched coaching approaches, early years learning and development outcomes and cognitive development methods that are specific to preschool aged children.
We have created a program that is relevant for each age group, providing sports drills, which are achievable for that age bracket. A key aspect of Soccer Time Kids is the emphasis on our three areas for individual growth.
These developmental areas are:
- Gross motor skills
- Cognitive learning and
- The building of social relationships.
All Soccer Time Kids sessions feature highly experienced coaches dedicated to ensure each child has the opportunity to grow and develop at their own individual rate. The Soccer Time Kids program offers three separate age groups with each session running for a duration of 45 minutes.
The Soccer Time Kids equipment is specially chosen to improve the preschoolers gross motor skills and to develop a fun experience regarding their cognitive learning.
An aspect of Soccer Time Kids is the requirement of parental participation which allows caregivers to enjoy their child`s successes and progression within the program. Also as all Soccer Time Kids sessions are conducted in indoor facilities, preschoolers are able to enjoy their program without the weather elements disrupting their learning.
Established in 2007 this proud Australian owned and developed organisation revolutionised early child development using soccer as its main medium.
What sets Soccer Time Kids apart from the rest is the method by which the coaches, not only coach soccer skills, but also teach. As an educational sports preschool program we have teamed up with leading experts in research coaching approaches, early years learning and development outcomes as well as cognitive development methods that are specific to preschool aged children. Ultimately the program should provide at an early age, a positive image for education and sports as well as health and well being for the youth of our future. We believe sport is for life. By encouraging your child to move and participate in sport, you are providing a solid foundation for future life skills and contribute to the holistic development of young people.
