CPSC Just4Kicks Soccer

What is Just4Kicks Soccer?

Just4Kicks is 3v3 pick‐up style soccer that is designed for kids who want to have fun playing soccer over the Summer. It’s not a league, its just a place where kids can come together and have fun playing soccer. No uniforms, no refs, no strict rules, no score standings to worry about, just have fun playing soccer.

Why 3v3 Soccer?

We chose the 3v3 game because it inherently helps players to develop quick controlled first touches, confidence in foot skills, the importance of give and‐go’s, understanding of shape, defensive strategy, good passing pace, trapping skills, good shot placement, etc. You cannot hide in 3v3 soccer because it forces every player to be involved. The game is the teacher and most importantly… it is a ton of fun!! That right….it’s 2,000 pounds of fun!

When is it?

Just4Kicks will occur over the Summer. It will run every Wednesday evening from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Clifton Common. In 2015, it will run from July 8th through August 26th.

Who is running it?

The Just4Kicks Soccer Program will be run by CPSC adults who will act as game assistants. The game assistant is not a referee. The game assistant’s job is to maintain the flow of the games by keeping time and directing teams on and off of the field. Players must resolve disputes amongst themselves, but the game assistant has the final say in any dispute.
