We all know the many health and fitness benefits children enjoy while playing sports such as soccer.
But did you know that organized sport also helps your child grow both emotionally and socially?
Increased self-esteem, better concentration and confident social interaction are just some of the vital life skills children develop playing sports.
At Soccajoeys, we pride ourselves on running play-based classes that include activities, routines, and experiences that help prepare children for all areas of life.
With accredited coaches and a fun program built around the “Early Years Learning Framework”, parents have been loving the Soccajoeys classes now for over 12 years.
In fact, here’s the top 5 reasons why parents are turning to Soccajoeys to give their children essential skills to lead them through life…
1) Safe And Nurturing Classes
Being parents ourselves, we understand there’s nothing more important in life than the safety and wellbeing of your little ones. As a result, all Soccajoeys classes are run indoors in a safe and controlled environment.
And unlike other soccer programs where they fit as many kids into the program as possible, all Soccajoeys classes have a limit to the number of children allowed. This way coaches are able to give every child the care and attention they deserve.
2) Non-Competitive And Non-Elite Program
Childhood shouldn’t be rushed. Nor should children have to feel the pressures of competing with others at such a young age. As a result, Soccajoeys classes are all strictly non-competitive and non-elite.
In line with the Early Years Learning Framework, we believe that children should be able to grow and flourish at their own rate, regardless of the performance of others around them.
3) Highly Trained And Accredited Coaches
All Soccajoeys coaches go through a rigorous screening and training program before running any classes. Your child’s enjoyment and safety throughout the program is directly related to our coaches’ skill and training, so you can rest assured that that your child is in great hands.
4) Focused On Building Vital Life Skills Through Individual & Team Based Activities
The Early Years Learning Framework we use was built around the 3 keys to a successful life, which are…
BELONGING: This is the basis of a fulfilling life and essential for children so they feel connected to their family, community, culture and friends.
BEING: This is all about being present and allowing children the time to actually play, experiment, learn and have fun.
BECOMING: Children start to form their sense of identity from a very early age. Structured sports like soccer gives children the ability to develop their own unique identity through physical activity and emotional development.
5) Fun And Social Environment
The heart of the Early Years Learning Framework is the fact that PLAY is actually LEARNING. Children learn to communicate, create and socialize through play. And there’s no better way to learn and play than via structured fun social activities like soccer. Best of all, group sporting activities are a great way to create new memories and friends for children, and they’ll remember these years for the rest of their lives.
