Fairhope Tots program is designed to introduce the game of soccer to 3-4 year old players and their parents.  Our program uses fun games to develop motor skills, promote physical fitness, and self-confidence.  It is imperative for at least one parent/guardian to participate with their child during each session. After a few sessions, the parent/guardian involvement may decrease as the child becomes more comfortable.

WHY DO WE ENCOURAGE PARENTS TO PARTICIPATE?  First, the child is more likely to participate if they see their parent/guardian playing. Secondly, participation could inspire the parent to enjoy the game of soccer and become a member of our coaching team in the future years. 
 
Parent volunteers are crucial during our small-sided games.  We ask parents of the team to be the "bumpers" around the field that the Tots are playing in order to keep the ball in play.  

Please consider being a Parent Team/Field Leader when you register your player.  While we encourage all parents to be involved, we need at least 10 consistent volunteers to help out Head Coach Ali LeBlanc each week. 

WHAT TO EXPECT AS A PARENT TEAM/FIELD LEADER? Coach Ali will oversee all fun activities & skills the kids will learn throughout the 7 sessions. 

  • As team/field leader, we will assign a color.  You will stand by a goal with your color. Coach Ali will assign you a team.  Your responsibilities are to provide encouragement, make sure kids are going in the correct direction, not using their hands, encourage a skill they learned & have fun!  Some kids will cry, some will get mad, some may not even want to play.  Remember they are 4-5 year olds!!!  


SESSION PLAN:

  • 25 minutes with Tots Head Coach: motor skills, ball mastery/control/skills
  • 25 minutes small sided games: We will utilize the all the parents to be "bumpers" to keep the ball in play.  An assigned parent team/field leader will help manage/direct a team of tots during games.  

WHAT DOES MY TOT NEED? A parent or guardian, size 3 ball, black shorts & socks, soccer cleats or tennis shoes and plenty of water.

QUESTIONS? We look forward to a great Tots season! If you have any questions, please contact Tess Slay, Tots/Fives Admin or Coach Ali LeBlanc
