Cottontails

2.5 – 3.5 Years  •  Parent & Child

Cottontails is designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Thumpers class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without a parent or caregiver. The Cottontails curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball kicking in addition to helping build a sense of independence. As children progress through the session and become ready for more independence, parents can choose to transition to a less active role in the class.

  • Cottontails classes are 50 minutes long
  • Parent participation is required
  • The child/coach ratio for Cottontails classes is 12:1 w/parents on the field
