Class Description

Lil' Kickers is a non-competitive, introductory soccer and movement skills program for boys and girls ages 18 months - 9 years. In Lil' Kickers, we don't just teach soccer to kids, but also use soccer as a tool to teach kids about life.

Enroll your child today, and find out why Lil' Kickers is nationally renowned as well as the highest quality child development program in the Northwest.


Bunnies (18 - 24 Months) - Parent & Child Classes
Bunnies classes are a fun introduction to the Lil' Kickers program. Toddlers and parents explore basic soccer and movement skills together. Classes include parachute activities, bubbles, lots of goal scoring, and the famous cone towers!
- Bunnies classes are 50 minutes long
- The ratio for Bunnies classes is 15:1 w/parents on the field depending on space available


Thumpers (2-3 Years) - Parent & Child Classes
Parents and kids, lead by one of our instructors, play organized games together to develop listening skills, balance, ball skills and foot-eye coordination. Thumpers is the ideal next step for Bunnies veterans who are not yet old enough for the Hoppers level, and a perfect introduction to Lil' Kickers for new players who are just barely 3 years old.
- Thumpers classes are 50 minutes long
- The ratio for Thumpers classes is 12:1 w/parents on the field


Cottontails (2.5-3.5 Years) - Parent & Child Classes
Cottontails is a class designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Thumpers class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without their parents or caregiver, as in our Hoppers classes. The Cottontail curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball skills. Cottontails classes also offer another component-helping your child build a sense of independence. As children progress through the session and become ready for more independence, parents can choose to transition to a less active roll in the class, helping prepare them to transition into Hoppers classes.
- Cottontails classes are 50 minutes long
- The ratio for Cottontails is 12:1 w/parents on the field


Hoppers (3 & 4 Years) Beginning
Three and four year-olds get a fast-paced, fun exposure to the most popular sport in the world. Classes focus on foot-eye coordination, dribbling, scoring and balance. Hoppers classes will also introduce the concepts of teamwork and cooperation. Hoppers will not play any competitive soccer games.
- Hoppers classes are 50 minutes long
- The ratio for Hoppers classes is 7:1


Jackrabbits (3 & 4 Years) Intermediate
Jackrabbits is a class designed for three and four year-olds who have either taken a session of Hoppers or have other soccer experience. Jackrabbits classes will focus on more complex ball skills (trapping and passing). Some small-sided soccer games will be introduced.
- Jackrabbits classes are 50 minutes long
- The ratio for Jackrabbits is 7:1


Big Feet (5 & 6 years) Beginning
Big Feet classes are for five and six year-olds who have not played soccer before. These classes concentrate on giving beginning kids a set of basic soccer skills (dribbling, passing, trapping, scoring) and some confidence on the field of play. Kids will be introduced to the ideas of sportsmanship and team play. Kids will play some small-sided soccer games and be encouraged to progress into Micro Leagues.
- Big Feet classes are 50 minutes long
- The ratio for Big Feet classes is 12:1


Micro Leagues (4-9 Years)

Children in Micro League Advanced classes will be introduced to more complex soccer tactics and skills. Our curriculum is designed by Arena Sports Lil' Kickers Director, Ty Redinger. Children will be challenged to apply new team concepts and individual skills to the scrimmage at the end of each class. As the highest level of the Lil' Kickers program, Micro League Advanced classes have become very popular for kids who love the game of soccer. In addition, the smaller student to teacher ratio allows for more individual instruction.
