Kickstart Families,

We are eager to begin classes again, however as you all know, things will look and feel different.  While we would love to have everything return back to NORMAL, unfortunately at this time, the safety of our players, their families, and our staff is paramount during this time.  We understand that not everyone will agree with some of the safety measures we have put in place,  and we would simply ask that you wait until we can relax some of our safety protocols to resume your toddler's participation.  

Here's a breakdown of a few changes that will affect the way we operate going forward:

1.)  Each child will be temperature checked prior to every class.  Toddlers who are running a fever will NOT be permitted to participate in class (a credit will be given for classes missed due to a HIGH TEMP reading) and will enter our SAFETY PROTOCOL.

2.)  Facilities will have ENTRY and EXIT only points to their buildings to limit congestion.

3.)  MASKS - Will be required for spectators.

4.)  SPECTATORS - We ask that families limit spectators as much as possible.  Limit 1 parent per toddler (wherever possible),  no additional siblings (when possible) and NO additional family members (i.e. grandparents, aunts, etc).

5.)  LIMITED LOCATION OFFERINGS - to start our Fall Semester, we will only offer classes in our SHELBY and FRASER locations with plans to have all locations up and running by our WINTER 1 SEMESTER.  

Because the information regarding the safety measures changes rapidly, please note that there may some changes that may affect your toddler's class as we move forward.   We thank you all for your patience and understanding during these trying times.

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!
