Blue Wave Kickers (BWK) Soccer offers a Tiny Tots soccer program for 2, 3, 4, and 5-year-olds.
Fun is the single most important thing Blue Wave Kickers (BWK) teaches. We teach it all the time, every day, every minute. If the kids are not having fun while playing soccer, then nothing else matters, because they will find something else to do instead. Our enthusiasm spreads like wild fire and the kids love the game. Blue Wave Kickers Tiny Tots engages the children in physical activity while developing their motor skills and basic soccer skills. We engage the children in fun and imaginative games that help build their confidence and self esteem.
We imitate animals, airplanes pirates, Buzz Light Year and, yes, even vegetables, while playing soccer. We yell “Goooooaaaaaaaalllllll” when they score. We do “victory” celebrations after goals. We have trophy day, we do team cheers, we have constant, non-stop, fast paced fun at practice, and…They are learning soccer every minute, even though they do not realize it.
We have only two rules which we tell our players when they show up for their first session
- We only touch the ball with our feet.
- We always have fun. Yes, parents participate and have fun too!
Each session runs for 45 minutes. The class will begin with running and fun stretching exercises followed by playing fun games with the soccer ball. Each class consists of dribbling, shooting and passing the soccer ball. This is all done in a fun, non-competitive way. The session always ends with shooting on the goals and/or a small-sided game. The 4/5 year olds will end most classes with a short game. This is to introduce them to the game of ‘REAL SOCCER’.
