The Munchkins and Mini Munchkins program is administered by our Director of Coaching and Excel Soccer President, Dave McCarthy, along with Excel Soccer training staff. As we have in the past, we also utilize our older travel team players as supervisors for the younger players. These players have developed the skills enabling them to easily demonstrate the activities we are teaching. In addition, the youngsters enjoy working with their older role models. The trainers also benefit from this experience gaining composure, patience, and an understanding of the educational process. Their understanding of the learning curve makes it much easier to teach these skills.
The players will also participate in 1v1 or 4v4 scrimmages each week that focus on utilizing the skills worked on in the education portion of the session. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
***note schedules have been adjusted to accomodate field space due to no permits for school fields** Parents need to practice social distance during each session/game and remain at least 30 yards away from playing field. We encourage parents to wear a mask when within 6 feet of the field and each child's temperature should be checked before coming to the field. If they have a fever or do not feel well please keep your child home.
