First Kickers is for kids born in the years 2014 and 2015. ASSA have changed our cutoff date from August 1, 2017 to January 1, 2018. For the new birth year age determinations, see the birth year tab.
First Kickers do not practice. We just play! Every activity in the First Kicker curriculum is designed to make sure every player is engaged and participating. Game times are listed below. Players are not placed on teams at this age and all activities are designed to help each kid enjoy playing soccer with his or her own ball.
