Somerset Hills Junior Kickers (JK) program is for boys and girls in Kindergarten and 1st grade and allows our youngest players to learn to love soccer while having fun.  The emphasis of JK is to create more touches and experiences of the basic principles of the game (passing, shooting, spacial awareness etc.) in a fun and less competitive environment. Games are played in a small sided game format to increase player participation and reinforce the basic principles.  Weekly practices, run by professional trainers from the United Soccer Academy, have 7-12 players per trainer.

Practice sessions will be held on the days listed below beginning the week of April 21st. All players will receive a team t-shirt to be worn during the games.

Players are expected to arrive 30 minutes before kick-off time to take part in a team warm up activity and to be ready to start their game at the correct time.  Late starts result in shortened game times. All players at the end of each game will do high 5’s with all players.
  • Apparel: Please ensure your child wears their team t-shirt, shin guards, sports clothing i.e. shorts and socks or pants as well as cleats or sneakers.
  • Volunteers needed: Each team needs 2 parent volunteers to help on game day, the roles include managing players time on the field rotating them evenly, being the point contact on game day and refereeing games. Please complete the volunteer segment of the registration or email jrkickers@shsc.net.

The Junior Kickers program is for boys and girls in Kindergarten and 1st grade and allows our youngest players to learn to love soccer while having fun [children in 2nd through 8th grades should check out our Intramural Program]

Teams practice one day a week with games on Saturdays. A parent or guardian must be in attendance at each session as parent/guardian involvement is an integral part of the program of having fun while learning and playing soccer. Practices are run by professional trainers from United Soccer Academy with a philosophy of fun, skill building and soccer games. Games are coached and refereed by parent volunteers. No game scores are recorded as the goal is to enjoy soccer, not compete.
