LI'L KICKS

Li'l Kicks is often a child's first foray into organized sports in Branford. The program is open to all Branford residents (and youngsters attending school in Branford) who are between 4 and 5 years of age. For exact brithdates for any given season, please see the registration page.

The club's goal is to provide a fun environment in which players can be taught the skills necessary for them to continue to enjoy the sport of soccer in coming years. Competition is not emphasized. In fact there are no league standings kept nor champions declared. The youngsters themselves bring to each game all the competitive drive that is required.

Each player will be provided with a team shirt. Participants are divided into teams of 8-10 players each. During the Fall, each team has a 30-minute practice followed by a 30-minute game on Saturday mornings. In the Spring, each team has a 30-minute practice followed by a 30-minute game one evening per week.

The Fall season begins in August and concludes in November. Registration for the fall program is conducted in May-June each year. All players registering at that time will be guaranteed inclusion in the program. Late registrants will be accepted only as field space, volunteer coaches and team roster space allow.

The Spring season begins in mid April and concludes in June. Registration for the spring program is conducted in February each year. All players registering at that time will be guaranteed inclusion in the program. Late registrants will be accepted only as field space, volunteer coaches and team roster space allow.

To both games and practices, please make sure your child brings:

  • Shin-guards (absolutely required)
  • A #3 ball with his/her name indelibly marked on the ball
  • A full water bottle
