Spring Youth sports

Elementary Soccer Skill- Youth of a younger age can participate in a skill based class. We will work on soccer skills through fun games and activities. A great base to introduce your child to the game of soccer and a great supplement to team practices. This class is open for kids in Kindergarten-4th grade and will be Sunday afternoons from 1:00-2:00pm from April 9-May 14. 

Little Kickers- Little Kickers is an introductory program for boys and girls ages 2-5.  This program is a great introduction to the sport and introduces youngsters to the fundamentals of soccer, character building  and being a team player.  Little Kickers is all about having fun. This class will run Tuesdays from 5:30-6:00pm. 

Karate- Karate was developed as a fighting art, defending oneself against one or multiple attackers. Modern-day karate helps build confidence, discipline and respect. Students will progress through the ranks with skills and techniques learned from the ancient warriors from the past known as samurais. This class is open to children ages 7 and up.  It will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm.
