Rubyz Soccer: 18 Months to 2 Years Old

Rubyz Soccer Program for 18 Months to 2 Years

Our Rubyz classes focus on the development and learning for children aged 18 months to 2 years old. Motor and social skill improvements are made through fun instructional games and obstacle courses, all while learning the basic fundamentals of soccer. Rubyz class activities require parent participation.

SoccerGemz also offers Mommy and Me Classes for our Rubyz aged participants. Moms with children 18 months old to 2 years old are welcome to join the SoccerGemz Mommy and Me classes for a fun and educational experience for both Moms and little Gemz.

Rubyz Benchmarks

Your gem should be able to perform the following tasks prior to moving to the next age group.

  • Dribble ball with either foot
  • Place foot on ball
  • Sit on ball
  • Do not pick ball up with hands
  • Kick ball to parent, coach, and into goal
  • Independently participate in games
  • Follow instructions from coaches
  • Playing with peers with minimal assistance

Once your little Rubyz turn 3 years old and can hit the Rubyz benchmark goals, they will be moved up to our 3 years old to 5 years old class, the Pearlz group.

Rubyz Soccer Class Activities

Our curriculum is specifically designed for toddlers between 18 months and 2 years old. Our coaches provide individual attention, positive reinforcement, and each class incorporates activities that are geared toward engaging your Gem in a unique way of learning.  Some of our games include parachutes, bubbles, noodles, cones, lots of goal scoring, and more. 

SoccerGemz also offers Mommy & Me or Daddy & Me classes lead by one of our experienced coaches. These classes are offered to our Rubyz aged Gemz (aged 18 months to 2 years old). Parents are required to actively participate in each game and skill activity to create the best learning experience for each child.
