Soccer At Blue Box Sports
Blue Box Soccer teaches skills in a fun, organized environment. Our success is due to fantastic Coaches and parental involvement (when needed). As your young players grow with our program so does the structure within the class. Dribbling and ball control will always be taught and encouraged throughout each weekly 45 minute class. Specialty skills such as Headers, Throw-ins, Defensive moves, Passing and more are introduced in the older age groups.
As kids progress through the program we begin focusing on body control, foot skills, passing, shooting and an introduction to soccer game situations.
Our non-competitive philosophy builds confidence without the pressure of winning. Tough topics for kids like sharing and listening skills are critical components to the program.
Blue Box Sports provides all of the equipment. The only thing we recommend bringing is juice or water. Have your kids wear comfortable clothes and sneakers, or anything they are comfortable running around in! They do not need any special clothing or equipment.
Blue Box Sports offers a 20% discount for siblings and/or multiple sport registrations. Discounts will be applied through online or over the phone registrations.
