Little Kickers Soccer School provides soccer instruction for boys and girls ages 4 to 6 at the Peck Slip School, at Pier 25 and at Pier 40 in Tribeca. The fun and structured weekly practices lay the foundation for future success; not just in soccer but in all sports and learning activities.
The curriculum is based on three fundamental concepts: having fun, being physically active, and learning to take instructions (be coachable). At the end of the child’s experience in Little Kickers, he/she will have learned the necessary tools to take the next step in soccer and youth sports. Little Kickers uses age-appropriate ball sizes, along with mini (Bownet) soccer goals. As a feeder program for one of the most recognized youth soccer clubs in NYC (Manhattan Kickers FC), the program continues to grow due to demand for the coaching throughout the city. Come and join the community!
