The Tykes Instructional program is geared towards introducing the game of soccer to the young ones (Ages 2.5 through 3). The program is run by Licensed Coaches and helpers which provides an individual instructor for every five to ten players. There is play time but no competition style matches. Each child will receive a soccer ball and t-shirt.
Meets once a week (typically Saturday mornings) based on availability of coaches and helpers. You will be contacted by the coach or club representative at the beginning of the recreation season with your player's session dates/time/location. Each session lasts 45 minutes to 1 hour (30-40 minutes of instruction).
Sessions are formed North (Dunkirk area), Central (Prince Frederick area), and South (Lusby area) based on number of registered players and field availability. Region/Areas could be combined due to low registration in an area.
Typically 6-8 sessions (weather permitting) beginning when the recreation games begin.
What you need to bring
A shirt and ball are provided but your player will need to wear athletic attire and footwear. Shin guards and Cleats are not required (but are adorable!). Also bring plenty of water.
