Soccer Kids NYC



We understand that children have varying talent levels and goals when it comes to soccer, and we want to ensure that every child has the opportunity to develop their skills and have fun. Our approach is designed to cater to children of different abilities and interests. We offer programs for beginners, intermediate players, and advanced players. Each program focuses on developing skills appropriate for that skill level.


For beginners, we focus on the fundamentals and we ensure that every player has access to the ball at all times. Players at this age work on their ability to receive the ball (first touch), ability to properly pass the ball using the correct part of the foot, dribbling, passing, following the play, finishing, 1v1s, understanding the phases of the game (AO, DT, DO, AT), and much more.


For intermediate players, we focus on more advanced skills such as technical skills, tactical awareness, small and large group cohesiveness, positional play, set pieces, understanding game plans, discipline, work ethics, academic responsibility, team oriented activities, and more.


Finally, for advanced players (academy level players), our focus is on higher level competition such as ENY STATE CUP, ENY State Challenge Cup, City Cup, Local and National Tournaments, and competition in local leagues. Training sessions are targeted based on individual player performance and developmental needs, team performance, team areas of opportunities, team analysis, individual player metrics and progression monitoring for academy level players. As an NYC FC Academy Youth Partner, there are scouting opportunities for players ready to move on to the next level of development. We regularly assess and adjust our programs to ensure that it remains effective and relevant.

Guided Games

Our Guided Games program is all about playing soccer and having fun! In this program, children get to play soccer without any drills or interruptions. The purpose of G-games is for players to just play the game, get comfortable having the ball on their feet, and making real-live, on the spot decisions with the ball. With no drills or structured activities, children have the freedom to explore their creativity and develop their own playing style. This helps them build confidence in their abilities and learn to trust their instincts on the field.

Our coaches are there to provide guidance and support when needed, but for the most part, they let the children take the lead. This creates a positive and empowering environment where children can have fun and develop their love for the game.

If your child loves to play soccer and wants to have fun on the field, Guided Games is the perfect program for them. It’s a great way to build their skills, confidence, and love for the game through the joy of playing.
