Itty Bitty Soccer Program

Introduce your preschooler to the world of sports in the Y's Itty Bitty Soccer Program! The goals of this program are to teach children teamwork, hand-eye coordination, listening and social skills, good sportsmanship and the basic skills of soccer. Program includes 8 sessions, jersey and end-of-season award. 

Please understand that most young children will need their parents assistance during the first few weeks. Each child is different, some may run right out without fear while others will cling to your leg the first couple weeks until they discover it is fun! Games are designed to be fun and encouraging to 2, 3, and 4 year olds!
