What to Expect and What to Bring
All Love the Ball Coaches are trained soccer coaches with years of experience working with children. Our most important rule is safety and our coaches all have two years of experience working with children, as well as First Aid training.
Children should wear clothing they can comfortably run around in. They are welcome to wear shinpads and should wear cleats or sneakers. All other gear and equipment will be provided.
Our coaches understand how important it is for kids to have fun and get moving. We will focus on improving skills and techniques that include:
-fast foot work
-dribbling moves and fakes
-first touch receiving
My son has been in love with soccer since he was able to walk, always kicking a ball around and wearing soccer jerseys, complete with shin "gardens". He started with Olly through an after school program shortly after he turned three and was beyond excited to go to his first practice! For the past year, Zavi has participated in three different sessions with Coach Olly, loving each one. Through these sessions, Zavi has learned sportsmanship, developed his ball control skills and athleticism, and further deepened his love of soccer. After watching Olly in action for a year, I continue to be pleased with his interaction with these young players and his enthusiasm for sharing his passion with them.
