Tiger Paws

The Tiger Paws (SAY Starters) program introduces the 3U-4U player to the game of soccer in a fun and safe environment. This program has been designed for preschool-aged kids so that they can work on a variety of different skill-sets that will ultimately make them well-rounded, confidant and socialized young people.

Tiger Paws isoffered in both the fall and spring seasons for 6-weeks. Each playing week will consist of one 45 to 60-minute training session led by a volunteer coaching staff. Each volunteer coach will have a curriculum provided to them and will be offered coaching course at the beginning of the season to help make them a well-educated coach.

The curriculum will be broken down into the following categories:

  1. Social Skills (10%)
    Cognitive Development (15%)
  2. Motor-Skill Development (40%)
  3. Soccer Skill - Basics (25%)
  4. Play (10%)

Each week players will be introduced to new skill-sets and practice those they learned during prior training sessions. After 6-weeks, the preschool-aged player will be proficient in certain motor-skills that have been taught and have new soccer skill-sets they can continue to work on. The most vital part of the SAY Starters program is that the kids, parents and coaches have a fun soccer experience that will encourage them to continue playing and participating in future years.
