The Munchkins Program is devoted to the education of basic soccer skills for children ages 3 to 5. Excel Soccer is now heading up the Munchkin program and will offer a diverse curriculum to stress the development of proper ball control, passing techniques, and ball striking. The development of the basic skills of the game enables the players to develop greater confidence.
The program will be administered by our Director of Coaching and Excel Soccer President, Dave McCarthy, along with Excel Soccer training staff. As we have in the past, we will also utilize our older travel team players as supervisors for the younger players. These players have developed the skills enabling them to easily demonstrate the activities we are teaching. In addition, the youngsters enjoy working with their older role models. The trainers also benefit from this experience gaining composure, patience, and an understanding of the educational process. Their understanding of the learning curve makes it much easier to teach these skills.
The players will also participate in 1v1 or 4v4 scrimmages each week that focus on utilizing the skills worked on in the education portion of the session. Basic rules of the game such as throw-ins and spacing are stressed in the scrimmage portion of the session.
Boys play from 9:00-10:00 am
Girls play from 10:30-11:30 am
