The benefits of sports when done appropriately are overwhelming.  Team sports teach kids more than fitness, they improve motor skills, increase self-esteem, and foster cooperation / team work.  Soccer is the perfect introduction to sports because children can already walk and run when they start (3 years of age).  They do not have to balance on an object or swing an object at a smaller object.  They simply can run with or without a ball. Because of this, they do not get discouraged but rather build self-confidence and feel good about themselves.  

3 - 4 years of age is the perfect time to start soccer.  At this age, children have a wonderful imagination, they love to learn and try new things, and most importantly they love to have mommy and daddy watch them play.  If you know some one with a child or children 3-4 years of age please pass along this information and let us introduce sports/ soccer to these future success stories.
