JOIN THE LEAGUE!!
The HappyFeet League is an excellent opportunity to see your little one further develop and showcase his/her HappyFeet soccer skills. Our league curriculum maximizes fun and friendship to ensure your child always wants to come back! We have found that parents & grandparents enjoy the league program as much as the kids!
Each League game is preceded by a 20-25 minute HappyFeet “Mini Class”. During the “Mini Class” your child will enjoy dribbling and ball striking touches to prepare them for the league game. The league game immediately follows the “Mini Class” and is about 30 minutes in length.
The HappyFeet League is offered for all children ages 3-5. The kids are grouped with their friends in teams of similar ages from the same school. This is a perfect way to make team play great fun and introduce kids to organized team sports. They have a blast because they’re familiar with their HappyFeet coach, the HappyFeet approach and their friends from school!
This is an ideal program for first time soccer players, young five’s, HappyFeet class participants, or any child with energy to burn! Coaches’ primary responsibilities will be to keep the game going, to foster a safe environment on the field, and to encourage the children and build their self-confidence! HappyFeet leagues are FUN environments where kids can get touches on the ball, be fit, and enjoy the game!
HappyFeet offers a variety of programs to fit all children’s needs. All of the programs use their friendly “story time with a soccer ball” approach that has received recognition by many early education experts as the premier preschool-age fitness program. Below is a list of HappyFeet Programs:
Stories & Games…On the Child’s Level
HappyFeet classes are 30minutes in length (National Association for Sports & Physical Education recommendation). Every child constantly has a ball. HappyFeet uses nursery rhymes, songs, stories and fun games with a soccer ball to maximize motor skill development. Two and three year olds love acting out nursery rhymes and songs. Four and five year olds have a blast with stories and fun games. The HappyFeet ball is called “Bob the Bobcat”! Kids love taming their “Bobcat”!
Classes at PISA.. Extra 15 minutes!
Facility classes at PISA are structured as 30 minute classes with 15 extra minutes of free play time on the field. During this time, parents and grandparents are invited onto the field to kick “Bob” around with their children!
The Next Level
If your child wishes to further her/his soccer education she/he can play for a team coached by a HappyFeet Certified Coach. These teams play in HappyFeet recreational leagues where the focus is your child’s creative skill development and having FUN. All players are placed on teams with their friends. HappyFeet makes sure your child has a great time, develops quickly and looks forward to HappyFeet soccer more than anything else he/she does on a weekly basis!
