Summer Early Goals toddler soccer program available in Savannah, Richmond Hill, Pooler, Effingham

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Early Goals Toddler Soccer Savannah Summer 2014Savannah United Soccer is excited to bring the Early Goals toddler soccer program to families in Savannah, Richmond Hill, Pooler and Effingham County this summer of 2014.

For Savannah United, enjoyment is central to the concept of play and is one of the major priorities in the Early Goals soccer program. As a motivational factor there is possibly none greater than the enjoyment provided by the satisfaction of the play characteristic. .

“Why we play as children is not because it is our work or because it is how we learn, though both statements are true; we play because we are wired for joy, it is imperative as human beings.”

The Early Goals program is a fantastic way to introduce your toddlers to the sports world Savannah United’s professional staff will work with the children on coordination, listening skills and introduce them to the joy of the ‘Beautiful Game’
