The MIGHTY HAWKSprogram is designed to provide an age appropriate family soccer experience for 3 year old children. (Birth dates from 1/1/2016 through 12/31/2016)
This introductory program supports associations and clubs in their effort to establish a foundation for the development of the 3 year old player. 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 3-4 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 eventually learn and enjoy the game. 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.
As part of your registration fee, Florida Hawks FC provides a Soccer Ball PLUS shirt, shorts, and socks.
The MIGHTY HAWKS program is an 8 week program that will be held on Saturday mornings from 8-9 am, Running from March 2020 through May 2020. Practices are mixed in with game time during the one hour/week.
