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.  
 
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 assistant 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, cleats or tennis shoes and plenty of water.

We look forward to a great Tots season! If you have any questions, please contact Tess Slay, Tots/Fives Admin.
