Toddler/preschooler soccer winter session in Savannah

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

savannah-celtic-early-goals-1Take the kiddos INDOORS this winter!!

Savannah Celtic FC offers an amazing program for children between the ages of 30 months and 4 years old. Savannah Celtic Early Goals works to develop coordination and comfort with a soccer ball at their feet.

preschoolersoccersavannahThis winter Savannah Celtic is offering sessions INDOORS at an indoor soccer facility. Enjoy the safety of an enclosed field (walls are always good with this age), the warmth of a heated building, and the sight of your little ones having a blast playing soccer.

Now in its 8th season, ’Early Goals’ is a fun, action-packed soccer program specifically designed to cater for the youngest players ages 2 (30 months) to 4. Coaches will work on simple motor skills, ball familiarity and hopefully plant the seed for a lifetime of enjoyment.

With one session a week, ’Early Goals’ is a safe, non-competitive environment which focuses on the fundamentals of the ’beautiful game’. The season ends with a scrimmage and selection of fun activities. Every session will be overseen by one of Savannah Celtic’s professional club coaches.
