Kick Start is a developmental program for young children ages 4 - 5 years old. Building strength and coordination at a young age gives children a physical and developmental advantage. Learning to work with teammates helps develop social skills. The earlier a child can start teaching their bodies the correct form for kicking and passing, the better chance they will have to develop advanced abilities. Also, teaching the joys of exercise and team sports can help them learn habits that will keep them healthier and happier in the future.
In the spring, the program will be run by UKElite coaches with volunteer parent coaches similar to the K-2 programs for 8 weeks.
The 60 minute sessions are held on Saturday mornings. Uniforms/t-shirts are included in the program fee and distributed at the first session.
Children must be 4 years old on the first day of the program
Soccer ball (size 3), shin guards and water are required for each session
