The HCNS Soccer Program is geared towards preschool-aged children ages 3-5 years old. (If your child is currently enrolled in Kindergarten, we highly recommend contacting your town’s recreation department, as most have Kindergarten soccer programs.) Our goal is to make these soccer practices safe and fun for everyone. Practice is 45 minutes long and emphasizes fun and vigorous participation. Age and ability differences will be taken into consideration. We aim for a low ratio of coaches to players, which lets us tailor the experience to the child. If a player is ready to learn how to make a good pass, we help that player with passing technique. If a player is ready for the first time to let go of mom or dad’s hand during the warm-up run, we help with that, too! Children should bring their own water and soccer ball, cleats and shin pads are not required.
