Micro Soccer Information

Rocky River FC offers our Micro Soccer Program for 3 to 4 year old boys and girls. Micro Soccer is a non-stop high energy activity where both the kids and the parents get to have fun learning soccer together. Micro Soccer is an introductory/developmental training program designed around the game of soccer. We need at least 12 players registered to offer this program.

The game is the great teacher. Micro Soccer simplifies the rules so that the game is age-appropriate, easy to learn, and FUN. The game is also a great social activity in that the player learns to work together with their team for a common goal. Playing sports is an integral part of a child’s physical, social, and mental development. Players make new friends, they burn off excess energy and soccer teaches the player to think on their feet, literally.

Micro Soccer is a coed program for boys and girls ages 3 to 4 which runs for 7 to 8 weeks. During the season, there will be ONE or TWO pool practice sessions led by our Micro Soccer Coach possibly even some of our older players followed by 6 Festival Days where our experienced coaches, with the assistance of parent managers, will lead a training session for the first half hour and then the players will break out into small teams to play a game soccer for the second half hour. The program is strictly developmental, with an emphasis on learning and fun rather than on winning or scores.

If your child has been in Micro before and excelled, we would recommend our U6 program. 

Parents dress ready to be active!  We will introduce the FUNdamentals to the player AND their parents.  We want to help support you, the parent, in working with your child learn to love the game of soccer. Parents are encouraged, basically expected, to be on the field with their kid. It is a FUN time for both the player and the parent and memories will be made together.  So leave your chairs at home and wear comfortable shoes and attire and be ready to HAVE FUN! 

The cost for the program is $85.00 which includes a uniform, skills training and 6 Festival Style Game Days.

Registration is now open. Click the Register link at top right to go to our registration page to sign your child up. 

Micro Soccer will play on a small field with 4 x 6 goals and Size 3 soccer ball. Each player will be required to have shin guards and socks fully covering them. Soccer cleats are highly recommended, however, they are not required. Each player should bring a Size 3 soccer ball with them. No jewelry can be worn during practice or games. Due to health reasons, players must be out of diapers.

This Spring, Micro Soccer will be led by Keenan Harward, know to most as Coach K.  Coach K holds several coaching licenses from both US Youth Soccer (D License, Goalkeeper) and UEFA (A License). He is also an experienced certified referee, refereeing games for youth recreation, Academy, Classic, ECNL, NCHSAA High School and Adult Amateur.  Our Micro program will be taught using proven curriculum develop by Bayren Munich with some influences from US Youth Soccer.
