Soccer is called the "world's beautiful game" and it is the most played sport among youths in the United States today. Our in-school program strives to use soccer as an educational tool designed for kids of ages 2-8. Kidz 'n' Kicks Soccer works with learning centers, so sessions are held during normal school hours. We also offer weekend programs open to everyone and this is a great opportunity for all the kids who do not attend the schools we work with. Our hands-on instruction helps kids gain and sometimes master important skills like being focused to learn, staying engaged, cooperation and physical skills related to the game, which build confidence and empathy.
