Little Kickers 2019

HYSL provides Little Kickers as an introductory academy to the world of soccer for our youngest players.  A curriculum of activities and drills support the basis of introducing the game of soccer to children.  

Sessions will start out with fun warm ups and practice drills and end with a game versus one of the other Little Kickers teams.

This program not only introduces the game to players but to coaches as well.  Players and coaches will be trained and inspired by our enthusiastic director.

Little Kickers sessions are held on Fridays.  There will be a parent/coach introduction meeting on Friday, August 23, at Redwood Fields, time TBA.  Sessions will be held on Fridays, commencing September 6 with anticipated group times: 4:15 - 5:00 pm and 5:15 - 6:00 pm. Sessions end Friday, November 1.  There will not be a meeting on Friday, August 30 due to the holiday weekend.
