Playground

For 3-years-old


 

AYSO’S Playground program is a unique development program designed to introduce 3-year-olds to soccer in a fun, pressure-free environment, while focusing on improving children’s Fundamental Motor Skills (FMS) utilizing age-appropriate activities. The program is designed by child development and soccer experts, giving children a foundation for success in any sport.

 

Playground uses group activities that are soccer theme-related. Players participate on a weekly basis with their parent/guardian working with them on the field. Parent involvement is necessary.

 

The program uses soccer as the “teaching thread” to develop fundamental motor skills. Players will hop, skip, jump, run, throw, balance, kick and play. However, this is not the standard soccer game format implemented in 6U and above divisions.

Program Highlights

  • 8 sessions of 45 minutes each, on Fridays at 6PM at the Sports Park

  • Parent/guardian participation is required. But don’t worry, you’ll have fun!
