Players participate weekly in three 15-minute coaching academies led by current/past Heights High School soccer players and former head coach Sean Sullivan. Players are organized by age and taken through a three-station academy working on the basic skills of soccer and small-sided games (3 vs. 3). The basic skills are presented in fun games designed to acquaint the players with social interaction and the physical coordination of soccer. This is the most beneficial approach for this age group. Parents and families are strongly encouraged to be on the field working with their young players with the guidance of the coaches. This can be an adjustment for parents and coaches who are not accustomed to this style.
Each session will end with the speed and agility training set to music that sets our academy apart from all others. Our concept is proven and successful and our proof is in the talented young athletes that emerge from our program. We strive to promote good sportsmanship, community values and enhance your child’s love of the “beautiful game.” Come experience why we have been ranked among the most highly rated pre-school soccer academies in Ohio. All players receive a medal.
Parent testimonial: “After watching and cheering on her older brother pretty much her whole life, our daughter Abigail could not wait for her own opportunity to play soccer. Finding the right environment for a toddler playing sports can be difficult. We wanted to find something structured, yet still fun. The Tiger Cubs program has provided that, with an even mixture of games, skill development, and athletic drills. There are several benefits we noticed immediately. The use of the turf field at Denison means no muddy cleats or uniforms. The trainers are all very encouraging and great with the kids. And the parents can be as active and involved (or not) as they want to be in all of the drills and exercises. We highly recommend Coach Sullivan and his Tiger Cubs program. It has been a great fit for our Abigail.” — Daniel and Nicole Powell
