One of the greatest things about our programs for parents is the flexibility when it comes to your daily schedule. We understand that every parents schedule is already hectic enough, so that’s why we’ve carefully developed our programs to allow parents to introduce our amazing program to your little ones in a way that works best for your schedule.
Check out our options below and get involved in the program that works best for your family!
WEEKLY PRESCHOOL CLASSES
Our weekly preschool HappyFeet classes run for 30 minutes and take place at your child’s preschool, community centers, or our state-of-the-art indoor facility once a week. These will not interfere with classroom learning time. The sessionsinclude highly structured soccer activities not only with a soccer ball, but also with many other fun “props” that are sure to please.
During each and every class, we make sure that every child is having a fantastic time while also developing essential physical skills along the way. These classes are constantly building on each other, and of course ... are always age appropriate. Each class will incorporate classic nursery rhymes, adventures, and children’s games that have been adapted to incorporate a soccer ball and general motor skill development.(including introductory soccer skills!).
WEEKEND LEAGUE PROGRAM
The weekend league program runs seasonally during the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer and only on weekends. This league program is 7-8, one-hour sessions taking place once per weekend.
No practices are held during the week. This program is beneficial to those parents who are just too busy during the week and still want to have their child participate on the weekends.
The Weekend League Program contains all the elements and fundamentals of the HappyFeet curriculum, to help further advance your own child’s soccer skills as they age through our program.
And of course, everything is age-appropriate and conducted in a comfortable environment to ensure that kids not only have fun, but also learn all kinds of skills along the way. This is a great way for parents and even grandparents to enjoy the league just as much as the kids do!
Special needs program - currently suspended
HappyFeet Kansas City offers a class for children ages 2-6 with special needs. This class uses individualized supports and modifications and has smaller class sizes with more coaches on the field. Coaches are available to provide assistance if needed, with independent participation as the goal. HappyFeet coaches partner with parents/guardians to learn from each family what works well for their child!
This class is a partnership with the Occupational Therapy Education at the University of Kansas Medical Center and occupational therapy students coach the classes.
