Our Kicks League for ages 2 years through 8 years (sometimes 9 years in certain facilities) has become a staple at Blue Sky Sports Center. Providing an experience for kids to play on a smaller playing field that is completely enclosed so that the ball never goes out of bounds has become a great teaching tool, learning experience and just plain fun for everyone from the player, to the coach to the parents.
Start them out early at 2 years old in our Tiny Kicks league. This league is used to get the little ones introduced to the game of soccer but more importantly beginning to play with one ball shared amongst everyone. Parents are encouraged to be involved in this league until the child is comfortable participating on the field with only their team and their coach. The cost for a 6 game season is $70 and it includes a jersey.
Once a child turns 3 and 4, they become part of our First Kicks League. This league begins to resemble more of the soccer game that their older siblings or even their parents have come to love. Playing 5v5 on the junior field with only the coach on the field to direct them, they learn how to pass the ball and move up and down the field to score and defend. The cost for an 8 game season is $85 and it includes a jersey.
At the 5 and 6 year old stage, the league they become a part of is our Junior Kicks League. Kids are now split out into boys leagues and girls leagues and begin playing 4v4 with no coach on the field, but rather on the sideline directing them throughout their game. Their skills have begun to develop into more of a controlled game of passing and shooting and defending. The cost for an 8 game season is $85 and it includes a jersey. At this age, every player must also purchase a player card for $18 (good for one entire year) to allow them to play in their games.
The Super Kicks league, for 7 and 8 year olds, is the league where competition becomes a part of the game and scores and standings are kept. The game is 4v4 with the coach on the sideline and the skill and competition becomes more important for the players and coaches. The cost for an 8 game season is $85 and it includes a jersey. Every player must purchase a player card for $18 (good for one entire year) to allow them to play in their games.
Check with your facility as some facilities have a Premier Kicks league for 9 year olds in either the 4v4 or even a 3v3 format. The cost is the same ($85 and includes a jersey) for an 8 game season. The $18 player card is also a requirement at this age group.
