Benefits for Families
Soccer is the only sport in which a child has to move a ball with their feet while simultaneously maintaining balance and changing direction. This guarantees every child greater fine and gross motor skill acquisition than alternative sports and general physical education classes.
We use stories, songs, nursery rhymes, fun games, dynamic movement and a ball for each participant to make our classes the single most enjoyable and beneficial activity children enjoy on a weekly basis. Because HappyFeet classes involve stories, songs, balls and dynamic play, children love absolutely every minute. A happy child who has satisfied their inherent genetic need to move is better able to focus, concentrate and maximize benefits from the other aspects of the school curriculum.
Save Time & Money while Increasing Family Togetherness - With your children in HappyFeet at school during the day, you won’t have to make extra trips to a soccer or sports program in the evening. You save time, the cost of gas, plus car wear and tear. With one less after school sports practice to attend, the family is able to spend more time together.
Brave Creative Leaders for Life - Our education based curriculum helps build confidence, strong character and the skills needed to become brave, creative leaders. By providing a safe environment and a team building environment our little ones develop the skills needed to make great decisions for life!
Sport-Specific Head Start - HappyFeet is a truly great preparation program for soccer teams at all later levels (club, high school, college and pro). Your child will truly enjoy and benefit from the HappyFeet experience at an early age while developing tremendous skills and the foundation of leadership character for all subsequent soccer involvement. By enrolling your child in HappyFeet classes and/or leagues, you are providing him/her with a guaranteed "head start" to a specific sports goal.
Benefits for Schools
HappyFeet classes are age specific, fun soccer fitness classes that utilize common children's games, stories and songs to teach soccer skills, improve fitness, develop balance and enhance coordination. HappyFeet classes are held at daycares, preschools, churches and mother's day out facilities. Classes are offered both during the traditional day and as an after school program. Classes can be performed both inside and out. Some of the common spaces used for HappyFeet classes include medium to large classrooms, lunchrooms, gymnasiums and outdoor playgrounds. The flexibility allows us to never cancel class due to weather.
Help Kids Focus - Because HappyFeet classes involve stories, songs, balls, and dynamic play, children absolutely love every minute. A happy child who has satisfied their inherent genetic need to move is better able to focus, concentrate on and maximize benefits from other aspects of the school curriculum.
Rebates for Schools - HappyFeet offers percentage rebate back to the school. Many schools use this extra money for supplies and/or supplies to place in the teacher resource room. HappyFeet is responsible for all the work and sees itself as a complement to the school rather than "another drain on the school's resources."
Build Staff Loyalty - Staff kids enjoy HappyFeet class for free. Staff kids attending class for free is just another perk keeping your staff happy with their job!
