Lake County Soccer Club
My name is Coach Holly and I will be your child's coach for our 2-3 year olds program. I have coached in every age group in our developmental program U6-U15 but the Lil' Kickers are my FAVORITE!!! Before getting involved with Lake County Soccer Club, I was an Early Childhood Educator so these little ones truly are my passion! I cannot wait to get on the field and have FUN getting to know them and teaching them a little bit about soccer! You will see that this program is so much more than soccer! We learn how to not just kick, dribble, and score- but be a part of a team!
How is practice organized?
Each session will practice as a team, at the end we will divide into small groups with parent helpers to help facilitate our "game time"- basically, we need good hi-fives and cheerleaders to keep the energy and enthusiasm up while the kids do their thing! I promise this is the most rewarding position in our club and you don't need to know a thing about soccer- you just need to be an involved parent!
Can I coach my child?
We see many of our parents transition with their children into U6 coaches and taking on teams of their own as their children grow in our club. I am always impressed with the involvement of our parents to put on a great program for our children. I couldn't do it without your help!! This season will be slightly different than seasons past as we will be dividing into teams on the fields at each session instead of being assigned teams, this will make it easier for us to move children around and keep a playing field that is developmentally appropriate for each child. If you are interested in helping out more information will be provided at our first practice!
Are uniforms included?
The jerseys will be handed out at your first session. Rumor has it our jerseys are a neon green color this year... I know a few of you have asked. Players should wear shorts, closed toed shoes- shinguards and cleats are recommended but not required for our youngest players. Please bring a water bottle to practice and a size 3 ball. I highly recommend putting your child's name on their ball- I will have soccer balls for the players to use during practice but our Lil' Kickers love showing off their special soccer ball at practice!
