New Names for 2020--Our youngest soccer program is our Tiny Tots for 4 & under; Fairhope Fives is now named Tots for 5 & under soccer players.
Fairhope Tiny Tots U4 program is our youngest soccer program we offer. This may be the first time your little one has participated in an "organized sport". This may be the first time they will be "sharing". A session will not look like a world-cup game. There may a few tears along the way, but with you by their side, your little soccer player will learn lots & have fun!
Fairhope Tots U5 program is designed to build upon the philosophy & skills first introduced to players and parents in our Fairhope Tiny Tots program, however a player is not required to participate in our Tiny Tots program in order to participate in our Tots program. The goal of the program is to continue to develop the passion and love for the game of soccer at an early age.
Our Early Youth Soccer Programs are designed to introduce the game of soccer to 3-5 year old players and their parents. Our programs use 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.
Please consider being a Tots Team Leader when you register your player. While we encourage all parents to be involved, we need at least 10 consistent volunteers to help out Head Coach Sam Miller each week during game time.
WHAT TO EXPECT AS A TOTS TEAM LEADER? Coach Sam will oversee all fun activities & skills the kids will learn throughout the 7 sessions.
As team leader, Coach Sam will assign a color & a field. Your responsibilities are to provide encouragement, make sure kids are going in the correct direction, not using their hands, encourage a skill they learned & have fun! Some kids will cry, some will get mad, some may not even want to play. Remember they are 3-5year olds!!!
WHAT DOES MY LITTLE SOCCER PLAYER NEED? A parent or guardian, size 3 ball, black shorts & socks, soccer cleats or tennis shoes and plenty of water.
WHAT DO I NEED AS A PARENT? We encourage all parents to participate with their liltte soccer player. We suggest to wear comfortable clothing and sneakers in order to participate. Bring an extra water bottle.
