KICKSTART! Toddler Soccer was founded in 2010 by two coaches who shared a passion for the sport of soccer, but more importantly, a passion for kids.  While training soccer players to compete at the highest levels of the game, they recognized that the development of an athlete started soon after toddlers could get on two feet and begin to move.  Frank and Kelly understood that soccer was the perfect sport for beginning athletes because:

  1. They could play it at the youngest age groups with easy of understanding (run, kick, score) and the rules of the game are simple to learn and follow.  
  2. Soccer is also a great developer of key athletic attributes for other sports:  speed, agility, quickness, balance, vision, creativity, fitness, and more. 

For these reasons, a curriculum was created that focuses on toddlers learning how to refine their large motor skills while slowly introducing soccer fundamentals.  This is all done by participating in various FUN activities each class and game, through a progressive structure.


Our mission is to stimulate the bodies and minds of children while introducing them to the joys of goal oriented physical activity leading up to competitive play.  

Taking great care with the knowledge that for many, this may be their first group class, we will focus on building nurturing relationships while introducing an engaging curriculum with the objective of making each Kickstart class or game the highlight of every student’s week.
