$55 for Three Kids' Summer Soccer Classes (Up to $110 Value)
Running from June 11 until August 30, youth kickers enjoy a summertime of flexible drop-in classes, this year's theme commemorating the Olympics and the Euro Cup. A sharable three-class pass allows players aged 2–12 to attend any scheduled drop-in class, held mornings and afternoons at 11 locations throughout the city. Coaches will introduce European playing styles and relate lore about legendary world soccer players, such as Lahm, Pele, and Moe. Each child also receives a T-shirt.
Super Soccer Stars
Argentina–born soccer enthusiast Gustavo Szulansky opened Super Soccer Stars to provide the boroughs with a program that championed the personal development of youngsters rather than solely a skill-based focus. Since its debut in 2000, it's grown throughout the city, helping countless youngsters learn teamwork, boost confidence, and decrease arguments during home games played on the dining-room table. This rapid growth is due in part to the positive values Gustavo instilled from the first class. His coaches are carefully selected for their ability to cultivate a noncompetitive, sensitive approach to learning the game, and they dole out their knowledge in both classes and camps.
Super Soccer Star's Kick & Play program features family-friendly classes that help tots 12–24 months old develop pre-soccer skills and physical skill sets simultaneously. During classes, a team of talented and enthusiastic instructors and an athletic duo of puppet friends named Mimi and Pepe buoy budding soccer players with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and the merry clickety-clack of cleated tap dances. Designed with the help of early-childhood specialists, each age-specific class helps players build skills at their own pace with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and engaging original music.
“Michael was an excellent instructor and my son loved the classes!”
