Soccer

Indoor soccer is a fun and active way for children to gain sports skills, learn about teamwork and build self-confidence. YWCA New Britain's experienced instructors will provide a safe and active learning environment for your budding athlete!

Classes will follow a general curriculum centered around individual skill development. Younger athletes work to increase their coordination with and without the ball while also introducing basic skills and touches on the ball. Athletes will also be introduced to passing and shooting, education about the offense and defense roles, while increasing their spatial and body awareness. As skills and abilities increase athletes will learn and practice their foot work with the ball and develop their skills in game-like situations. Athletes will also engage in scrimmage play, which will help them become more comfortable in game situations.

Winter soccer classes will be held on Saturdays from November 18 to February 8 from 10:30 to 11:20 a.m.
