Why Grasshopper Soccer is #1 Child Development Program For Kids?

One of the best things about Grasshopper Soccer is seeing how it brings a group of kids together and builds a team.

To play soccer the kids need to learn how to communicate with one another respectfully and responsively. They have to learn to share and come together to meet a common goal - to get the ball in the net! This interaction encourages childhood development and allows kids to make friends across cultural boundaries and neighbourhood fences. For particularly shy children who aren’t doing well at socially at school, a Grasshopper soccer team provides an instant set of friends, and a way to experiment with interaction in a safe, healthy and non-competitive environment.

It is fun!

Living healthily and learning to make friends are good goals to have for anyone entering a sport, but the key to Grasshopper Soccer is that it is fun.  It offers a sense of self-esteem and we see well-being develop as the kids see their accomplishments grow. Soccer involves both mental challenges and physical movement in a way that a video game could never offer. Instead of being stuck inside playing violent video games, spending time on tablets and electronic devices or sitting in front of the television, Grasshopper Soccer allows kids to be outside developing healthy bodies, minds and self-esteem.

Recent technological advances are designed so that we could work less and enjoy more. Unfortunately the reverse seems to have happened. The more technologically based we have become the more sedentary, unhealthy and distant from one another we have grown. And this is the model our kids think is normal.  Playing Grasshopper Soccer and becoming part of the Grasshopper Soccer team may be one of the best antidotes for the 21st century!

Children like to play sports, not learn them, and soccer is certainly simple enough. You simply tell youngsters to chase a ball and kick it without using their hands. If it goes into the net, so much the better!

There are no fancy plays to remember, our kids quickly figure it out by just playing the game.

In addition, children like to participate in activities where they can succeed. There is a place for all youngsters in a Grasshopper Soccer game, at every level and any position. For these reasons, our program is indeed a winning game for children. Playing soccer stimulates cardiovascular fitness and develops agility better than any other sport. 

Soccer is truly a sport that teaches children the value of teamwork by requiring players to always work together. Whether advancing the ball or playing defence, soccer players must always play as a team to be successful. 

Probably the most important aspect of soccer is its positive influence on a growing child’s self-esteem. Soccer will improve self confidence in a clumsy six year old boy who is having trouble writing his name or cutting with a scissors. An eleven year old girl, feeling inadequate because she's the smallest in her class, can star at playing soccer since ability in this sport is not dependent on size.

Grasshopper Soccer is the fun, non-competitive way to bring kids together and teach them valuable life skills.
