Soccer Starts At Home®


Program Overview:

PARENTS and the HOME the key to early age development! 

  • The Soccer Starts at Home program encourages and guides Parents to engage positively with their young child, inside the home, or out in the yard, a little bit each day (20 minutes) utilizing the ball mastery skills that are made available on our Soccer Starts at Home Video Skills Library page.  
  • Research has shown that developing new skills- whether in sports, music or the arts –at an early age, jump-starts the cognitive development in young minds.
  • When following the Soccer Starts at Home Program, there will be benefits that give your child a ‘flying start’ in the sport of soccer and the game of life! 


  • Create a Safe Environment. Safety first, make sure to practice in a safe space in the home. When playing on wooden or linoleum surfaces we recommend no socks to avoid Slipping.
  • Allocate time in your schedule to practice the weekly activities. Engage with your Child 20 minutes per day.
  • Provide positive encouragement for your child.
  • You can do as much or as little as you like. Once a week, twice a week, five times a week – whatever works for you
