Winter League Curriculum


KICS Winter League combines fun, positive coaching with age appropriate games and skills to ensure development of fundamental soccer skills for young players. It consists of one professionally instructed soccer practice per week and weekly Friday games against teams in the league within your player's age division.

Practices
Each practice will focus on a basic skill and provide the player with an introduction, execution and progression of that skill.  All practices end with a one ball game to try and execute the skill of the day.

Games
Give the players a chance to work towards a goal and allow them to experience a game atmosphere and competition while challenging them to apply what they have learned in practice.
