Mighty Hawks (2020-2019)

ABOUT THE MIGHTY HAWKS PROGRAM

The MIGHTY HAWKS program is designed to provide an age-appropriate family soccer experience for children 2 to 3 years old.

This introductory program supports associations and clubs in their efforts to establish a foundation for developing toddler players.  This age-specific, story-based approach, is built around the introduction and development of the core motor skills required to play the game.  Experts in child development and education indicated that most children of 2-3 years of age do not have their core motor skills sufficiently developed to play the game.  That is why the focus of the MIGHTY HAWKS program is the development of those core motor skills.  Through fun games and activities, the program develops balance, running, jumping, turning, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness, all essential to allow the young player to learn and enjoy the game eventually.  The program does all this while involving the most important person in the child’s life, the parent. 

Experts in the field of child psychology and development stress the important role of the parent to the young child, so this program has been developed to support active parent participation.  This approach fosters a memorable experience for the whole family and encourages support for the volunteer coach.
