Kinder Kicks / Asia Pacific Soccer Schools
Kinder Kicks is a soccer play program for children from walking to 5 years old. Our professional coaches will teach a wide variety of exciting games where students enjoy themselves while learning the basics about soccer. Each activity is designed to improve a young child's motor skills and social skills while having fun.Kinder Bounce is a basketball-based fun programme for young children up to 6 years old. Many different games are used to improve hand-eye coordination and the children learn how to catch, throw and dribble the ball. It's a fun way to learn the basics of basketball while learning to take instructions and interacting with other children of the same age.
In walking to 2yo and 2yo age groups, one parent/guardian is required to attend each class along with their child. In these classes the parent/guardian will often need to participate with their child to guide them (don’t worry - it’s easy!). In the classes for 3 and 4 years olds a parent/guardian should also just be on hand in case the coach needs some support. Children 5 years old and over may be dropped off and picked up at the end of class, although parents/guardians are always welcome to stay and watch!
APSS classes at the YWCA are for 5, 6 and 7 year old children. These are a progression from Kinder Kick classes, where the emphasis is on building soccer skills such as dribbling, passing and shooting. These classes use specially weighted soccer balls so students can learn better control of the ball and really learn to play the beautiful game! If a child is 5yo and has not played much sport before it might be more beneficial to complete a Kinder Kicks 4-5yo course first, before moving to APSS sessions.
Kinder Games is a multi-sport programme for small children up to 6 years old which uses all kinds of equipment and activities to get kids active and using lots of different motor skills. Students will be throwing, catching, balancing, crawling, jumping, dodging and more! It will also teach kids valuable social skills like sharing, taking turns and listening to Coach.
