The Mini Jambars Academy is an eight week program for ages 3-7. This program is designed to introduce soccer to young children while teaching them the basics of soccer and some key components appropriate for these age groups. Furthermore and most importantly, the Mini Jambars Academy is designed to help young children fall in love with the game. Many of the drills involve fun soccer related games to slowly and steadily teach them these key components while creating a fun environment. Through these soccer related games and other drills, we emphasize basic soccer techniques including the proper way to control the ball, dribbling techniques, the proper way to pass the ball, and how to perform various moves appropriate at this level. Aside from this, we go above and beyond to teach them proper speed and agility techniques that will help them grow as an athlete on and off the pitch. Additionally, there will be various sessions that end with a mini scrimmage to allow the youngsters to experience the game itself.

We understand that at this age it is important to keep the young mind entertained while providing a safe and comfortable environment. Therefore, every session we will work hard to get to know each and every player and connect with them on a personal level. We also understand that consistency can be key for our young ones. All of our sessions will include some sense of consistency to better enhance your child's performance. We are so excited to begin the third season of this program and hope to see your little one out on the pitch!

Participants need to bring a Size 3 ball to every session. Shin guards and cleats are optional and a water bottle is encouraged.
