Class Descriptions: 

Bunnies (18 - 24 Months) - Parent & Child Classes


Bunnies classes are a fun introduction to the Lil' Kickers program. Toddlers and parents explore basic soccer and movement skills together. Classes include parachute activities, bubbles, lots of goal scoring, and the famous cone towers!  

  • Bunnies classes are 50 minutes long 
  • Parent participation is required 
  • The ratio for Bunnies classes is 15:1 w/parents on the field

Thumpers (2-3 Years) - Parent & Child Classes

Parents and kids, led by one of our instructors, play organized games together to develop listening skills, balance, ball skills and foot-eye coordination. Thumpers is the ideal next step for Bunnies veterans who are not yet old enough for the Hoppers level, and a perfect introduction to Lil' Kickers for new players.

  • Thumpers classes are 50 minutes long 
  • Parent participation is required 
  • The ratio for Thumpers classes is 12:1 w/parents on the field

Cottontails (2.5-3.5 Years) - Parent & Child Classes 

Cottontails is a class designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Thumpers class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without a parent or caregiver. The Cottontails curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball skills. Cottontails classes also offer another component-helping your child build a sense of independence. As children progress through the session and become ready for more independence, parents can choose to transition to a less active role in the class, helping prepare the child to transition to the next level. 

  • Cottontails classes are 50 minutes long 
  • The ratio for Cottontails is 12:1 w/parents on the field
