Bayonne Recreation announces new program: Kick & Play Soccer

The Bayonne Division of Recreation is proud to announce a new program, Kick & Play Soccer, brought to you by the creators of Super Soccer Stars. Kick & Play Soccer is a parent-child pre-soccer and movement program specifically designed for toddlers between 12 and 24 months.
Experienced instructors along with puppet friends, Mimi & Pepe, take you and your little one through a world of exciting physical activity. Individual attention, positive reinforcement, and engaging original music help to develop pre-soccer skills that will have your toddler learning to balance, run, kick and play, all while having a blast.
Class structure children at this age learn best through a secure and comfortable environment with predictable routines. Kick & Play class starts with a welcome song and jumps right into a kicking activity based on the weekly animal theme. Little soccer balls and small, toddler-size goals are used as an age-appropriate tool to help toddlers begin to focus on the lower body.
Other activities include an upper body activity, stretching song, cognitive game, and the class rounds out with a parent-child massage and good-bye song with clear, fun transitions.
In Kick & Play classes, we will create an environment through which parents/guardians participate and interact with their toddlers as much as possible because our toddlers get the most out of the experience when they see their parent/guardian playing a long with them.
Kick & Play classes encourage toddlers to use their lower bodies more effectively in order to improve balance, overall coordination, and kicking abilities so that as they grow, they develop the tools necessary to begin playing soccer.
There will be a free demo day on June 24 from 2:30 p.m. to 3:10 p.m. or 3:20 p.m. to 3:50 p.m. at Veterans Stadium. Children and families will able to meet the staff and participate in a free session.
