Is there a benefit to start soccer at such a young age?
While it may seem foreign to begin soccer at an age when your child is just learning to walk, there are many benefits when introducing your child to the game at a young age. In the BRSC Mudbugz program, we begin teaching players as young as two the basics of ball mastery. At this age, we simply want to help children get comfortable with controlling the ball with their feet through fun games and activities. Our sessions are created to constantly engage your child’s creativity without overloading them with boring, repetitive drills that lose their attention.
You will be impressed with just how quickly your child will pick up on our activities and how much they’ll enjoy the process of discovery. Beyond building comfort with a soccer ball, the Mudbugz program provides numerous benefits that translate to important skills off the pitch
- Physical development: Soccer involves a lot of running, kicking, and jumping, which can improve a child’s cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, and coordination.
- Parent-Child Bonding: BRSC Mudbugz is a parent-and-me program that allows parents to get involved in games and activities. Some parents say that they enjoy the sessions just as much as their kids
- Mental development: Soccer requires strategic thinking and quick decision-making, which can help children develop their problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
- Improved self-esteem: Success on the soccer field can help boost a child’s confidence and self-esteem. It can also provide a sense of accomplishment as players master new skills.
Beyond providing a jump start to your child’s soccer development, starting soccer at a young age can provide a variety of physical, social, and cognitive benefits for children, while also helping them develop important life skills.
