I had two loves as a kid growing up, dogs and soccer. I couldn’t get enough of both. So, I was beyond excited when I found out that there was actually a soccer program in Greenwich for kids in the toddler set called Under 2’s Kick & Play program from Super Soccer Stars. I did some investigating and discovered that the Kick & Play program is specifically designed to target the natural progression and age appropriate milestones all part of a healthy development a child goes through. It took me no time at all to make sure Charlie was enrolled. I especially was excited because this is an outdoor program for kids, and let’s face it, kids need lots of outdoor time. Because it is scheduled on Saturday morning, the whole family was able to go and cheer Charlie on. I also experienced how much fun this program is. The instructors are all great with the kids with their laid back no pressure approach. They even had large puppets to demonstrate soccer moves! As the instructors were encouraging the exploration of all those gross motor skills needed to play any sport, they incorporated original music and language so it’s so much more than running and kicking. They offer birthday parties
Kick & Play, a comprehensive developmental program for toddlers ages 12-24 months, is a perfect fit for you and your little one! These classes are geared towards the natural progression and acquisition of age-appropriate milestones. Not only does Kick & Play utilize the foundations of soccer to build upon gross and fine motor skills, but paired with our original music, child-size character friends, and highly trained instructors, the program also focuses on language and communicative growth. Not to mention the added social benefits that come from participation amongst peers, Kick & Play facilitates a way for children and their adult counterparts to develop a deeper and richer bond. You will be amazed by all the things your toddler can do, given the simple structure and consistency of the Kick & Play curriculum.
They also do birthday parties and hold customized private groups as well for families in their backyards. Private groups tend to be very popular in the area as it allows families to create a schedule around their busy schedules. It is also a great way for getting moms together to have coffee while their little ones play.
