Putting forth weekly values that promote good sportsmanship and vocabulary for my 3 year old. The convenience of practice and game day all in one. A lot of toddler programs at park districts do not offer actual game days just practice.
I love all the interaction between the coach the staff in the parents as well as the kids. I like the fact that we are kept informed about everything that's going on most of all I love the happy faces on my kids when they know that they are on their way to participate in their sport
I think at the 4 year old level it is so important to have the fundamental part of the game but also the interaction. Keeping the children engagaed and applying the new skills is what makes soccer such a wonderful sport. Other programs do not connect these aspects like i9!!!
Make up the games that are rained out. I understand the weather didn’t cooperate but other age groups were able to make theirs up. Or pick a location that lets you use their fields after Nov. Or start the season earlier. Or dont waste the 1st week on meeting the team when that’s usually a good weather week still.
