    Overview

    As a sport that incorporates constant movement, aerobic exercise, balance and  eye-foot coordination as well as healthy social interaction it is an ideal activity to promote all around physical development in early childhood.

    Through the medium of soccer related fun activities and games we have created progressive curricula for children aged 2 – 6 which introduce the sport and  develop age appropriate skills.

    Our philosophy and methodologies are based on cutting edge educational principles of how children learn techniques and develop them into skills while having a fantastic time!

    Since its inception in 1996 our U.K. Petite Soccer program has grown in popularity to the point where we currently  have over 6,000 children between the ages of  2 and 5 attending our programs annually.

    All a child needs to join a program is a pair of sneakers, a pair of shin-guards and  plenty of energy and enthusiasm!

    For more information please contact us at info@ukpetite.com  or call 973-631-9802.

    Petite Summer Programs

    U.K. Petite Summer Programs help to increase early physical and emotional development with 3 – 5 year old children. The fun, healthy and exciting world of soccer can now be part of their active lifestyle.

    Petite Camps are typically 75 or 90 minutes a day, Monday to Thursday / Friday. Each day is structured to promote individualized learning through the medium of fun soccer related games and activities.

    Seasonal Petite Soccer Programs

    Typically 6 – 8 weeks in length and range from 45 minutes for the youngest to 60 minutes for the oldest. Classes are structured to build from individualized learning (ball each) to small group activities (shared ball, cooperation and/or teamwork) to conditioned games (small scrimmages). Of course each class varies in structure according to the ages of the children – please check the specific program on the website for further class information.

    Classes are conducted year round – both outdoors (in association with soccer clubs, recreation departments and YMCA’s) and indoors (in association with the above and also childcare centers and indoor sports facilities).

    FAQs

    What exactly is a U.K. Petite Soccer Camp or Program?
    For more information about the nature of the U.K. Petite Camps and Programs go to Petite overview.

    What will my child learn at a U.K. Petite Soccer Camp or Program?
    The number one priority at all our camps and programs is that players have a great time learning about soccer and developing their social and physical skills in a safe, nurturing environment.
    Specific age appropriate curricula have been designed for all programs with the goal of achieving both common, and age specific Learning Outcomes.

    What time should I arrive for a camp or program?
    We ask that you arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to the first session so that we can register everyone quickly and efficiently, and get all the children playing and having fun as soon as possible. For all future weeks please arrive 5 – 10 minutes prior.

    What equipment does my child need?
    Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for indoor or outdoor play according to the season and facility. For outdoor play children can wear sneakers or cleats. All players must wear shin guards for all sessions, indoor play no cleats permitted.

    Do I need to bring drinks and snacks?
    Players should always bring plenty to drink. Our coaches will take frequent breaks for children to rest and re-hydrate. Due to the short nature of the camps and programs it is at your discretion whether to pack snacks. Children will have time to eat small healthy snacks during water breaks.

    What do I do in the case of inclement weather?
    In the event of inclement weather a program may be cancelled. All cancellations will be posted on our weather hotline page.

    Please note: Due to the geographical reach of our programs and timing of cancellations occasionally the online list may not be complete. If in doubt please travel to the field and a decision will be made at that specific location.

    Can parents participate in the camps and programs?
    Parents are encouraged to attend all session’s to support their child and also to assist our coaches in the event that their child is having any problems. Parents may actively participate in the programs for our youngest players if it is necessary or beneficial.

    How do I give feedback about the coaches and the program?
    Please visit our website and fill out the Online Questionnaire. Your suggestions will be used to actively improve our camps and programs.

    How can I help to spread the word about U.K. Petite?
    At U.K. Petite we are constantly looking for parents to act as liaisons for our programs in their local community. Benefits of being a liaison can include early notification of camps and programs in your area and discounted prices for helping us attract additional players. If you are interested in becoming a U.K. Petite Liaison please email Liaisons@UKPetite.com.

    How can I facilitate a U.K. Petite Program closer to my home?
    We appreciate that for many parents it may be more convenient to have a U.K. Petite program in their own town rather than travelling to neighboring towns. We are always open to the option of providing additional programs if we are confident there will be support for it in the community. To suggest a town or facility please email Liaisons@UKPetite.com.
