 Bunnies (18 - 24 Months) - Parent & Child Class

Bunnies classes introduce toddlers to soccer with games that allow them to run, play as a group, and kick a ball. They gain basic soccer skills while building fundamental skills such as balance and coordination. Classes incorporate activities which are geared toward a toddler’s unique way of learning. Classes include parachute activities, bubbles, a lot of goal scoring, the cone towers and so much more!

  • Bunnies classes are 50 minutes long
  • Parent participation is required
  • The ratio for Bunnies classes is 15:1 w/parents on the field


Thumpers (2-3 Years) - Parent & Child Classes

Parents and kids, led by one of our instructors, play organized games together to develop listening skills, balance, ball skills and foot-eye coordination. Thumpers is the ideal next step for Bunnies veterans who are not yet old enough for the Hoppers level, and a perfect introduction to Lil’ Kickers for new players.

  • Thumpers classes are 50 minutes long
  • Parent participation is required
  • The ratio for Thumpers classes is 12:1 w/parents on the field


Cottontails (2.5-3.5 Years) - Parent & Child Classes

Cottontails is a class designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Thumpers class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without a parent or caregiver. The Cottontails curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball kicking. Cottontail classes also offer another component-helping your child build a sense of independence. As children progress through the session and become ready for more independence, parents can choose to transition to a less active role in the class.

  • Cottontails classes are 50 minutes long
  • Parent interactive
  • The ratio for Cottontails is 7:1 w/parents on the field


Hoppers (3-4 Years) - Beginners

Hoppers classes are designed to be fun and fast paced. Classes focus on increasing balancing skills, coordination, and fundamental soccer skills. We utilize creative games and help kids develop listening skills, cooperation and teamwork. Hoppers classes are the first class where children participate independently.

  • Hoppers classes are 50 minutes long
  • The ratio for Hoppers classes is 7:1


Jackrabbits (3-4 Years) - Intermediate

Jackrabbits classes are designed to help transition children into non-competitive team play. Children play creative games to develop fundamental soccer skills and will also be introduced to more one-ball oriented games and scrimmaging. The focus of the scrimmages will be to help players understand how to apply skills in different situations and building teamwork. Some small sided non-competitive games are introduced.

  • Jackrabbits classes are 50 minutes long
  • The ratio for Jackrabbits is 7:1


Big Feet (5-6 Years) - Beginners

Big Feet classes are for five and six year-olds who have not played soccer before. These classes concentrate on giving beginning kids a set of basic soccer skills (dribbling, passing, trapping, scoring) and some confidence on the field. Kids will be introduced to the ideas of sportsmanship and team play. Kids will play some small-sided, non-competitive soccer games to help prepare them for Micro Classes.

  • Big Feet classes are 50 minutes long
  • The ratio for Big Feet classes is 12:1


Micro Classes (4-5 Years) - Intermediate

Micro Classes are developmental and non-competitive for intermediate kids ages 4-5 years designed to enhance individual and team skills, with an emphasis on fun and safety. Micro Classes are for kids who have played soccer before either in Lil’ Kickers or another program.

  • 50 minutes of class time with 15-20 minutes of instruction and 20-25 minutes of scrimmaging
  • Teams will field no more than four players at a time
  • Everyone gets equal playing time
  • There will be no goalies
  • We will not keep score or league standings
  • The ratio for Micro Classes is 12:1


Micro Advanced (5-6 Years) - Clinical

Micro Advanced classes introduce more complex soccer tactics and skills. The small student to teacher ratio allows for an increased level of individual instruction. Children are taught new team concepts and individual skills, and are challenged to apply them in the scrimmage at the end of each class. The Micro Advanced class is the highest level of the Lil’ Kickers program for kids who love soccer.
