First Kicks is OCSC’s Recreational Active Start program. Club instructors introduce fundamental movement skills and basic ball familiarization in a high energy environment that is age-appropriate and FUN for players. The objective is to learn the game while parent and child interact and children are moving and active. Your child will enjoy learning skills and playing soccer through imaginative games.
FUNdamentals is a followup to the First Kicks (U4-U5) Active Start program. In this stage of development, players will continue to learn and refine general sport skills and soccer techniques. Players will work on their ball mastery skills and get maximum repetitions through games, challenges and activities which are designed to be appropriate to their abilities.
Learn To Train (2011-2010)
This “golden age of learning,” when children become less self-centered and are more able to reflect on their actions and learn from mistakes, provides an optimal window for further development of skills. The focus is on learning by doing, building a larger repertoire of soccer movements and teaching the basic principles of play in a fun and challenging environment.
