Pee Wee Soccer is a great environment for fun and learning the most fundamental soccer skills. This is a non-competitive soccer experience where children age 4-6 years of age will have a chance to dribble, kick, and run about with a soccer ball. One hour sessions should typically consist of 25 minutes of skills followed by a 25 minute fun soccer match.
The Pee Wee co-ed soccer program is a wonderful opportunity to introduce your 4-6 year old child to soccer in a fun and non-competitive learning environment. We encourage children to learn soccer through age appropriate activities that teach soccer through socialization, team work and improving fundamental motor skills. The program sessions will provide a fun and positive interaction in a nurturing environment. Previous soccer experience is not required to participate in the Pee Wee soccer program with Gates Youth Soccer.
We encourage our coaching staff members to teach the very fundamentals of soccer, and to teach and lead by example. Simple and repetitive exercises to demonstrate moving and touching the ball with the feet are the basic initial skills required to control a soccer ball. Passing a soccer ball with direction and at the appropriate speed towards some target (a player or a cone) is another building block in the required skill set. There are many variations and types of exercises that we will present to the Pee Wee player in a way that will entertain and excite them and prepare them to participate in the game at an age appropriate level.
