The Houston Dynamo have entered into a groundbreaking partnership with world-renowned youth soccer educator Tom Byer to expand his Soccer Starts at Home program throughout the Houston area, Byer and the club announced today.
Soccer Starts at Home is an innovative approach to youth development, geared at children age 2-6 that has a proven track record of success in terms of developing both soccer-specific skills and general motor skills and coordination. Byer’s approach focuses on putting a miniature soccer ball at a toddler’s feet from the time he or she can walk; but rather than teaching children to kick the ball away from themselves, the focus is on pulling it closer and retaining control of the ball. The beginning of ball mastery!
Soccer Starts at Home also shares the message of the positive effects of early Parental engagement with their son or daughter and how this emotional support helps motivation, inspiration and which will give any child a flying start into the game of soccer.
We would love for your club to JOIN THE MOVEMENT!
