Bronze Soccer Level

HVAA Bronze soccer level is a great progression for children who have completed Micro Soccer. Bronze level is a co-ed fun-filled program for all soccer players in grades 1st (having played at least 1 year of micro), 2nd and 3rd. Players will be assessed at the beginning of the season to make sure they are ready to move up from the Micro level. Players will further develop basic skills of the game through age appropriate activities and drills designed to keep the learning process both challenging and fun. Coaches will provide direction, but more importantly, let the kids have fun and PLAY in controlled game/scrimmage situations. The primary objective by the end of the season is to ensure that each player has a "positive experience", desires to play again the following year, and has successfully demonstrated the skills listed below.
