Little Sparks

Little Sparks Soccer Program

This program is for ages 3-5

FC Central Illinois is excited to continue to offer the Little Sparks program to Bloomington/Normal this summer.

Little Sparks is an introduction to soccer, where children and parents can take their first steps in soccer together!

Specifically designed for children aged 3 to 5 years old and using the fun of play and imaginative stories, Little Sparks facilitates a child's physical, mental, social and emotional development through the game of soccer!

Little Sparks uses three key principles (experiential play, creative learning, and holistic activity) to build an environment for children to learn and explore different outcomes associated with soccer and self-development.

Players will have an opportunity to play an age appropriate scrimmage at each session.

Questions

Club Administrator Sarah Parola

Director of Operations Natalie Freeman

children will explore their capabilities to

  • Learn fundamental soccer skills (kicking, controlling, catching and throwing) 
  • Develop fundamental movement skills (agility, balance, coordination and speed) 
  • Experience key social and emotional attributes (self-esteem, self-awareness and teamwork)

Please bring a size 3 soccer ball to each practice.

We look forward to seeing you this summer.
