Mint Hill Soccer offers our Micro Soccer Program for 3 and 4 year old boys and girls. Micro Soccer is a non-stop high energy activity where both the kids and the parents get to have fun learning soccer together. Micro Soccer is an introductory/developmental training program designed around the game of soccer.
The game is the great teacher. Micro Soccer simplifies the rules so that the game is age-appropriate, easy to learn, and FUN. The game is also a great social activity in that the player learns to work together with their team for a common goal. Playing sports is an integral part of a child’s physical, social, and mental development. Players make new friends, they burn off excess energy and soccer teaches the player to think on their feet, literally.
Micro Soccer is a coed program for boys and girls ages 3 and 4 which runs for 8 weeks. During the season, there will be ONE or TWO pool practice sessions led by our Micro Soccer Coordinator and possibly even some of our older players followed by 6 Festival Days where our experienced coaches, with the assistance of parent managers, will lead a training session for the first half hour and then the players will break out into small teams to play a game soccer for the second half hour. The program is strictly developmental, with an emphasis on learning and fun rather than on winning or scores.
The cost for the 8-week program is $85.00 which includes a uniform, skills training and 6 Festival Style Game Days.

Soccer cleats are highly recommended, however, they are not required. Each player should bring a Size 3 soccer ball with them. No jewelry can be worn during practice or games. Due to health reasons, players must be out of diapers.
