Sports Ohio


     For years Soccer First has helped young players develop their skills through our youth instructional programs.  Our instructional programs are a good starting point for players that are new to the game to learn the skills needed to play the wonderful game of soccer. 
     We offer classes for kids ages 2-6 and the Soccer Academy and 3 v. 3 training program for ages 5-16. The programs will include games and activities that allow kids to learn at their own pace while having fun and improving their motor skills (running, kicking, jumping, starting and stopping) and soccer skills, as well as their understanding of soccer.
     Kids will be able to progress through the program up to the Soccer Academy, where they can play soccer games and learn skills through experience. Most of our players have continued on to play soccer whether it is at the recreational level or the more competitive level of club soccer.
