The PlayFirst youth soccer program is designed to introduce the game to young players in a very creative and dynamic manner that is conducive to the way skillful soccer is played and learned.

Kids just want to play and have fun.  The methodology of the PlayFirst program will cater to this “fun-factor” kids so desire, and in the process, teach soccer skills and game awareness intuitively.  The kids will experience the enjoyment of the activities presented to them, but the games will be teaching them much more than they realize.  Creative and instinctive thoughts will begin to develop and they will be on their way to forming their own “soccer brain”.

Program Layout

PlayFirst’s Spring Session is an 8 week program scheduled for once or twice a week. With a day of training or a day of training and a day of scrimmages.

The training will focus on playing fun games that build the child’s zeal for soccer while teaching them the basic skills they need to play the sport.

Team scrimmages are specifically set aside for letting the kids get on the turf field with their team and just play the game! In most aspects of life, kids usually figure things out by playing, and learning to play soccer is no different. Sometimes you just have to let them get out there and do it for them to get the hang of it!
