The TESC Junior Kickers program is a bridge program offering more recreational or beginner players an opportunity to get a small taste of what a travel program would be like.  Our program is currently open to U7-U10 players, and they all receive professional training on a weekly basis with an emphasis on individual player development.  Our staff working with this program have US Youth National Coaching Licenses targeted towards working with players of these ages.

Program Objective

To provide a positive and engaging environment where players can improve their individual technical skills (dribbling, passing, receiving, and shooting), understand very basic tactical ideas, and work on developing physically as well (agility, coordination, balance) in small-sided games.
