Lil' Silverbacks Ages 2-5

The Lil’ Silverbacks Football Training Program, designed for children ages 2-5, is a good first step towards an athletic and healthy lifestyle. We have two stages to choose from that best fits the experience of the child.

Stage 1: Lil' Silverbacks: Ages 2-5

This program is geared towards beginner players. Players that are just starting out and have limited experience in group settings. The interactive curriculum teaches parents and children the basic motor skills associated with general athletic competition. A coach will walk participants through an hour long weekly program designed to teach coordination, concepts, and successful interaction with others. This is a fun way to learn the basic fundamentals and team skills.

Stage 2: Lil' Silverbacks Enrichment: Ages 4-5

This program is for players that have a higher attention span, players who have been through stage 1 and are ready for more game play. Players at this stage will go through a 20 minute instructional skills building session and a 40 minute game play session each week for 8 weeks.
