The Junior Kickers Academy is an introduction to our soccer program for those under 9.
The Junior Kickers Academy is for youth ages 4 to 8. The skills sessions focus on soccer fundamentals and proper techniques while creating a fun environment that allows athletes to learn the game of soccer. The games sessions allow players to utilize the fundamentals they have learned during the skills sessions.
The Junior Kickers Academy will be offered in an evening for our youngest players looking for additional soccer training and playing experience. Players will train weekly and participate in a round robin tournament with other Central Wisconsin Soccer League communities at the end of the season. They will learn in a fun environment with age-appropriate activities and games.
The Junior Kickers Academy is organized and run by the Wisconsin Rapids Kickers Club coaching staff, experienced players and dedicated parents. The cost for the program is $60. The registration includes a training t-shirt, training/coaching, and tournament fee.
Each session players should bring/wear the following:
- Soccer cleats (recommended, not required)
- Shin guards (required; for safety reasons, players without shinguards will not be allowed to play)
- Clothes suitable for the weather
- Water bottle
- Positive attitude and willingness to learn and have fun
