Registration

We have Soccer Playtime (at some locations) for ages 12-23 months. This is a self-guided playtime, with soccer equipment provided and activities suggested. For the 2-year-old sessions, the player must be turning two within the month of participation.

No. Your child needs to turn the required age (2, 3, or 4) within the month of participation. *For the Advanced Skills 4.5-5.5-year-old session, 4-year-olds must be 4 years + 6 months AND have participated in 3 prior months of TTS sessions to be eligible. 5-year-olds do not have to have any prior participation.

How many sessions are there?

There are 3 sessions per registration period (one per week). If applicable, the 4th (and 5th) week of the month is reserved for make-ups (if canceled by us).

Session costs depend on the age of your child. Starting in September 2022, new prices will go into effect for NEW PLAYERS ONLY. Current subscriptions will remain under the old pricing tier until registration begins for 2023 sessions.

  • 2-year-old sessions are $40 (per month)
  • 3-4-year-old sessions are $45 (per month)
  • 4.5-5.5-year-old sessions are $52 (per month).
Registration begins on our website, www.tinytroopssoccer.com, on the 15th of each month*. Monthly registration will be for all new and returning players for the following month of play.
 
*Registration begins on the 16th if the 15th falls on a Sunday.*

No! Tiny Troops Soccer utilizes a subscription service. Register once during the year for our soccer program. Your child is automatically enrolled each month thereafter!

Fill out the 'Take a Break' form (click HERE) by the 13th at 5:00 p.m. EST and your card will not be charged for the following month.

Please make sure to only fill it out for the month of the next round of sessions. Forms filled out for more than the next month's sessions will be placed on hold until the appropriate month occurs. For example, during the April period, only submit TAB forms for May. Do not submit for June, July, etc., at that time.

*When you want to resume sessions, you will need to register again (starting on the 15th).

If your location is not running, you will be notified and your payment paused. When sessions resume, you will receive an email notification. This verifies that you want to resume sessions and payment.

Equipment

Every child needs the following: 

  • athletic clothing suitable to the weather
  • a size 3 soccer ball
  • close-toed shoes (cleats are optional)
  • water to drink

Yes. Children learn by getting as many touches on the ball as possible! You can purchase a customized TTS ball during the registration process.

Size 3 (for all ages).No. Your child needs to turn the required age (2, 3, or 4) within the month of participation. *For the Advanced Skills 4.5-5.5-year-old session, 4-year-olds must be 4 years + 6 months AND have participated in 3 prior months of TTS sessions to be eligible. 5-year-olds do not have to have any prior participation.

Shin guards are optional for the 1 to 4-year-old sessions and required for the 4.5-5.5 yr. old Advanced Skills session. *Closed-toe shoes (tennis shoes or cleats) are required.

Session Information

No. Each age group has its own session besides the 4.5-5.5 old Advanced Skills session. (*Combining of 3 & 4-year-old sessions may occur if there are low numbers).

There are 3 in person sessions per registration period (one per week) AND one virtual session during the final week. We reserve the 4th (and 5th, if applicable) week of the month for in person make-ups (if canceled by us).

2-year-old sessions are 25 minutes, 3 & 4-year-old sessions are 45 minutes, 4.5-5.5-year-old sessions are 55 minutes.

Session times and days will vary by location. All of our locations run Saturday sessions. Some locations may offer weekday session options as well.
Find session locations under the Locations tab. Please choose your Region (timezone) first. Then choose your location and locate the "View Schedule" link.

No. You will meet at the same time and place each week.

Yes. A parent/guardian must be at each session for the duration of the session to help with water breaks and child participation (if having trouble listening to the Coach, staying on Soccer Island, keeping hands to themselves, etc.). *We require one parent per child to participate for the entire session for Soccer Playtime and 2-year-old Parent and Me sessions.

Our program offers skill-building sessions. Unlike other youth soccer programs, our 3 & 4-year-olds only scrimmage for a few minutes during the second and third sessions. This maximizes the time spent on age-appropriate skills. The Advanced Skills sessions will include a scrimmage during each session.

No. For the safety of your child, snacks may not be given. Please bring plenty of water as that is all they will need.

No, Makeups are only offered if a session is canceled by us due to a weather or Coach emergency. We schedule makeups for the 4th weekend of the month. Saturday makeups run during regular session times. All Sunday makeup sessions, if scheduled, will begin at 1:30 pm.
