OVF Alliance supports two soccer programs for kids 2-4 years of age. In Albany we partner with the Boys & Girls Club of Albany to run Little Tikes, and in Corvallis we support Little Kickers held at the Corvallis Sports Park.
OVF Alliance is proud to partner with the Boys & Girls Club of Albany to bring Little Tikes Soccer to our community.
Little Tikes Soccer is a soccer-based physical and cognitive development program for 2-4 year olds that uses soccer to develop young bodies and minds. Our coaches use proven methods in early childhood development to lead players and their parent/guardian partners in activities, songs, and games that build fine and gross motor skills while also engaging these young minds in creative exploration and problem solving exercises.
Best of all, it's FUN!
Clinics will be held on Saturday mornings from 9-10 AM for 18 months-2 years old and 10-11 AM for 3/4 years old** at the Boys & Girls Club of Albany on the Charlie Weaver Indoor Soccer Field. Registration will typically open 1 month prior to the first clinic date and close the Monday prior to the first clinic date or until the cap has been met (whichever comes first).
Parent/Guardian participation is required for all sessions. There is a cap of 20 kids per session and registration is first come, first serve.
What do bears, sharks, space rangers, superheroes and soccer have in common? Lil Kickers! Lil Kickers is a child development program filled with creativity, high energy coaches and loads of fun. When kids step onto the field for a Lil Kickers class they will find a world transformed just for them. Supervised high energy activities allow kids to be kids. The innovative games and child centered teaching methods are just what kids need to learn soccer, plus a whole lot more. In Lil Kickers we don’t just teach soccer to kids, but also use soccer as a tool to teach kids about life.
Because Lil Kickers is a program rooted firmly in renowned child development theories, your child will learn the fundamental skills it takes to be successful both on and off the soccer field. From Bunnies to our Micro classes, Lil Kickers programs are there to help your child achieve the developmental milestones that are natural part of their personal growth. Lil Kickers builds strong fundamental physical skills, teaches teamwork and cooperation, and inspires confidence – all in an atmosphere where kids are successful and learning is fun.
