Spring 2020

Spring HappyFeet Soccer League

Each Saturday session begins with a HappyFeet class that includes a new skill introduction, followed by a small-sided game. Each child gets a dedicated coach that encourages your child to try new soccer moves in fun and exciting ways!

Each session is one hour long for 3-year olds – 6-year olds. They are broken down by age group and typically occur at the following times: 3 y/o at 9 am, 4 y/o at 10 am, 5 y/o at 11 am, 6 y/o at 12:15 pm. Actual time may vary depending on the number of each age group that registers. Typically, older 4-year-olds and 5-year-olds will move to the older age group, based on the number of registrants. All registrants will receive an email one week prior to the start of the league with the exact time of their session, team, team color, and coach. Each registration includes a team jersey, end of year certificate and medal, and instructional coaching.

This program is run by Seattle HappyFeet.
