Micro Soccer provides an introduction to the game of soccer in a positive, engaging, and non-competitive atmosphere.  At this level, our youngest players learn basic soccer skills while developing their gross motor skills and coordination. Players are encouraged to have multiple touches on the ball through fun skill-building games. They are introduced to soccer while making new friends and most of all, having FUN!

Each child will also need shin guards and a size 3 soccer ball at each practice and game.  Cleats are not required but are highly recommended.

Fees

For the Fall 2018 season we have a sponsor that has made it possible to offer this program to our community at no cost to our families.

The fee for the Fall 2019 season is $30

Coaches

Coaches at this level are volunteers.  They willingly give of their time and energy to our young players.  In return for their efforts they receive our appreciation, memories made with their children and a group of smiling faces.  Please consider becoming a coach and indicated your interest during registration.  You will be contacted.

Philosophy and Objectives

The Waxhaw approach to soccer education at this age focuses on developing a love of soccer.  At these ages, happiness is the most important achievement. However, Waxhaw fully intends to develop skill, balance and coordination, positive socialization, and early leadership skills.

  • Soccer Education:  1 ball, 1 player

    • Technical activities are disguised as fun, imaginative, role-playing activities

    • Emphasis consists of dribbling-starting, stopping, changing directions, and varying speeds

    • Passing into a net, passing/striking the ball into open spaces and nets will be game driven

    • Games will include problem-solving, teamwork, individual expression, and goal-setting
