New to Soccer

Most soccer clubs in Minnesota offer programming for children beginning at the age of five or six years of age, but a few soccer clubs offer programming for children as young as three or four years of age. In Minnesota, and many other states, soccer programming is considered developmental through the age of 10, so the focus is largely on activities and/or games aimed at teaching the young player the basic skills of soccer and to love the game. Starting at the age of 11, the focus is about further developing the player’s skills and teaching the technical and tactical competitive aspects of the game.
