Pre School Soccer for Kids, Toddlers & Babies
What are the different age groups?
BABY KICKS: This 30 minute sports playgroup is taught free of charge to members under the age of 2yrs. All sessions are taught in the shade and in wide open spaces where your toddler is free to kick and run to his or her own desire.
KIDDY-KICKS: These 45 minute sessions feature full parental participation and are geared towards children aged 2-3yrs and 3-4yrs. Children will learn to use different parts of their feet and body to control, dribble and kick the ball with their parents by their side the whole time.
JUNIORS: These sessions are geared towards children aged 4-5yrs and are 60 minutes long. JUNIORS sessions only feature parental participation during the first 15 minutes warm-up. The second portion of the session progressively introduces the rules of Soccer to children and features small sided 2v2 and 3v3 matches in a friendly and strictly non-competitive environment where passing, cooperation and sportsmanship is encouraged above winning at all times.
BKK GALAXY training sessions will continue to teach new dribbling techniques via drills with parental participation, and will also introduce the concept of Passing &Space Awareness which is vital to playing 3v3 and 4v4 matches.
What happens at a KIDDY-KICKS training session?
During each week's 45-minute session, each parent-child pair is introduced to five mini-games: a warm-up game, a technical game, either a competitive game or a teamwork game, an all-out crazy fun game, and finally a warm-down stretching activity before the trip home.
How is my child's unique stage of development addressed?
At Bangkok KIDDY-KICKS, each child has his/her own personal coach: the participating parent! Who better than a child's parent could be aware of his or her individual strengths and challenges? One-on-one time with a parent heightens a young child's enjoyment of the activities and brings out his or her best efforts, maximizing his or her progress.
What will my child gain from the training activities?
Learning to play soccer means acquiring a bank of physical, intellectual, social and emotional strengths. The Bangkok KIDDY-KICKS football program fosters all aspects of your child's development. Among the many rewards children take home from their KIDDY-KICKS participation are improved coordination, gross motor skills, speed, accuracy, balance, power and endurance; color recognition, numeracy, patience and concentration; team spirit, an appreciation for structured play, the ability to follow instructions, understanding the benefits of having (and following) rules of the game; responsibility, respect and tidiness; self-esteem and self-confidence. And, of course, a love for healthy outdoor activities with parents and an enhanced relationship with them!
And how about us parents? What's in it for us?
You will learn by experience that participating in 45 minutes of structured activity with one's under-six child can be fun for Bangkok parents, too! By the end of the year, you will have acquired a bank of fifty-plus fun activities you can engage in with your child at home, strengthening the bonds between you. As you witness your child's continual improvement, you will also have the satisfaction of knowing that you have played an active role in his or her success.
