An Engaging Introduction to Soccer

The Soccer Heroes program has been designed to provide an age specific approach to learning the game of soccer. Utilizing the Soccer Heroes theme and our fun story based curriculum, this program engages players and parents alike and fosters a memorable first soccer experience. Soccer XS coaching support helps create a dynamic training environment and supports volunteer coaches, some of whom may be coaching for the very first time.U5 Soccer Heroes

If you're a parent of young children, you know that life is about play, fun and making friends. The Soccer Heroes program brings that same approach of fun, discovery and learning in a soccer program that engages the whole family and creates lasting memories.

The 8 week, age specific program, is a step by step interactive development guide for youth soccer organizations that run U5 soccer programs. The curriculum is based around the adventures of Amazing Ava and Super Joel who get their super powers from a special soccer ball. The program is based around 3 developmental areas:

  • Storytelling
  • Imagination & Play
  • Motor Skills Development

All of the learning points are integrated into the games, stories and play; this allows the children to learn in their natural environment while having fun.

The role of the coach is one of story teller and activity facilitator, with the coaching points integrated into the stories. Learning to play with the ball is all part of the stories and the fun. Each child has their own Soccer Heroes soccer ball which teaches them Ava and Joel's soccer super powers as we progress through the season. The program is fun for player’s, coaches and parents alike, it will create a memorable soccer experience for everyone involved and will leave everyone looking forward to their next soccer season.

Program Features:
  • Weekly Professional Training Support (1 training session per week on Saturday mornings)
  • Age Specific Curriculum Support for Volunteer Coaches
  • Soccer Heroes Jersey (Club logo printed left chest)
  • Soccer Heroes Soccer Ball (Part of the curriculum approach)
