How Soccer Cubs Works
We divide classes by age in order to meet your child's developmental needs. Younger age groups focus on developing motor skills and building good technique. As students progress through the program, more team-based drills are introduced.
Classes last for 45-50 minutes and are once a week for 8 weeks. We have multiple class times for each age group. You can find class schedules by accessing the registration page of your chosen SoccerZone location.
Our USSF-licensed coaches lead fun activities to build your child's athletic and social skills. We routinely change the drills and games to keep sessions engaging for returning students.
Each week of class focuses on a specific skill.
Week 1: Introductions & touches on the ball
Week 2: Dribbling
Week 3: Trapping
Week 4: Passing
Week 5: Shooting
Week 6: Combined dribbling & shooting
Week 7: Combined passing & shooting
Week 8: Combined passing, shooting & dribbling
