Little Kickers Fall 2018

Updated Thursday May 24, 2018 by Stephanie Brizard.

What is LERSC Little Kickers?

Lynbrook East Rockaway Soccer Club has a long standing tradition of placing the welfare and growth of a child over the need for intense competition. LERSC has helped develop children to gain both a love for the sport as well as a true sense of belonging within a community.  Our Little Kickers is a program for our littlest ones, ages 2-3. It is a one-to-one child/caregiver program lead by professional trainers who work with children in their professional daily lives as teachers and/or physical therapists. We teach basic skills appropriate to the age groups.

Our "just turned 2" group plays for 30 minutes. Ages 2.5 to turning 4 play for 40 minutes. All participants are asked to wear appropriate athletic clothing, including sneakers and every child should bring a size 2 or size 3 ball to play with and their own bottle of cold water. The program is run at the same location as our Intramural program, which is for children eligible for a Pre-K 4 year old program through second grade, but on a different field space.

 

Little Kickers meets weekly on Saturdays at BAY PARK in East Rockaway for eight or nine sessions from September to November in the Fall and April to June in the Spring.

 

Registration Fees

$80 per season, per child.

Weather Cancellations:

We play in the rain. We cancel sessions in cases of lightning or field flooding.

You must sign up for texts/emails to be notified of a cancellation due to inclement weather. 

If you have not heard via text or email that soccer is cancelled, then it is not cancelled. We do not have any room in the schedule for make-up days and we try our best to give our children a chance to play. Please do not email or text us asking if we are going to cancel. If we do, you will know.

Refunds: 

The club does not make any refunds, to any person, at any time, for any reason. However, every registration is eligible to obtain insurance on your registration for a nominal fee from a third-party insurance provider. LERSC is not responsible for any contract that you may enter into with that third-party.
