Kickstart Families,

We know that many of you are eager to return to the field with your toddler.  We are too!  

While many businesses have gotten the clear to open, the indoor recreational facilities which we operate in are still under lockdown as per the Governor’s executive order.  These also include theaters, fitness centers, etc.  

We think that the clear to open those facilities will come very soon and along with that, the guidelines required to keep everyone safe.

Once we receive the OK, and the guidelines from the Governor’s office we can then begin to plan our next session and open registration.  

While we would love to start our Summer Semester (Early July), it is becoming more likely that the Fall Semester will mark our return to classes.  We are crossing our fingers that we will see you all again sooner than later.  

We have appreciated all of the support and love we have received from you all during this time.  We hope you and your family are staying safe and we look forward to seeing you all very soon!

Thank you and have a great day!

Yours in soccer,

Kelly Schodowski

Kickstart! Toddler Soccer was founded in 2010 by two coaches who shared a passion for the sport of soccer, but more importantly, a passion for kids.  While training soccer players to compete at the highest levels of the game, they recognized that the development of an athlete started soon after toddlers could get on two feet and begin to move.  They also understood that soccer was the perfect sport for beginning athletes because:

They could play it at the youngest age groups due to it's ease of understanding (run, kick, score), and the rules of the game are simple to learn and follow.  Soccer is also a great developer of key athletic attributes for other sports:  Speed, agility, quickness, balance, vision, creativity, fitness, and more. 

Because of this, they created a curriculum that focuses on toddlers learning how to refine their large motor skills while slowly introducing soccer fundamentals.  This is all done by participating in various FUN activities each class.

Each SEMESTER consists of 7 classes that meet ONCE PER WEEK.  
We have multiple locations, days, and times for you to choose from to make it convenient for your family.  

Because REPETITION is so important at these ages, SEMESTERS repeat throughout the year allowing your child to develop and grow with the program.  Players are encouraged to enroll in multiple semesters throughout the year to maximize development.

We are now the largest toddler sports program in Michigan!
