Child Participation.

When attending Mini Tots, most children willingly participate in the ball skill exercises. Children love running outside with their attending adult. However, sometimes this doesn’t happen. The coaches understand this situation and are happy for them to just listen and watch. They will still be learning and this is their way of approaching the session. Often with time, patience, encouragement and hand-holding they will join in and enjoy themselves.



Adult Participation.

So that each Mini Tots session runs smoothly, coaches may need participating adults. During each session there are exercises in which the children use a small soccer ball. While the exercises are not complicated they often require one-on-one assistance. Initially, adult participation is sometimes required due to loads of enthusiasm and minimum ball skills. However, as the sessions progress through the weeks the children should develop good ball and game skills and will require less assistance. Remember, all the children love the chance to play with their attending adult and enjoy developing their ball skills together.
