Tiny Troops Soccer is a year-round soccer program for ages 2-4 years old. We focus on teaching developmental soccer skills that help prepare little ones for recreational league soccer when they are older. Our program features trained coaches who utilize a lesson plan at every class. We teach a variety of soccer skills, listening activities, and other gross motor skills through fun games. Every child brings a ball, allowing them to get as many touches on it as possible during a class. We offer a membership program that collects tuition bimonthly for classes. We schedule makeup dates in case of weather or coach emergencies. 

Tuition is collected every 8 weeks. Every tuition period includes 6 classes. Off days, makeup days, and weather breaks are built into our schedules.

For more information on a specific location, please visit our Find My Location section.

All locations will run classes on Saturdays, with some also offering weekday classes. Makeup classes will be held on Sundays, and you will receive pre-scheduled make-up dates in your informational email after enrolling. Please remember that makeup dates are only used if a coach emergency or the weather causes a cancellation.

Tuition costs depend on the age of your child. Each tuition period includes 6 classes. Tuition is collected every 8 weeks.

  • 2-year-old $85
  • 3/4-year-old $95

Each class provides high-quality activities and skill-building fun. All coaches follow a set lesson plan, ensuring that your little one’s class is filled with fun and learning from beginning to end!

No! Tiny Troops Soccer utilizes a membership program. When you enroll your child for their first class, you agree to enter a membership with Tiny Troops Soccer.

When enrolling for 2023, you will pay the current tuition fee and automatically enroll in autopay for the remaining tuition installments. If you are enrolling part-way through the year, you will pay the current tuition installment and be automatically enrolled into auto-pay for the remaining installments.

Tuition fees are paid bi-monthly. 2023 installments are 12/15/2023, 02/15/2023, 04/15/2023, 06/15/2023, 08/15/2023, and 10/15/2023.

While we would love for all little ones to join us on Soccer Island, your child must be turning 2 during the current tuition cycle they are being enrolled in. 

Example: Your child is 22 months old, and you wish to enroll them in to begin in March. As long as your child's 2nd birthday occurs before the end of April (the end of the tuition period), they are eligible to play in our 2-year-old Parent and Me classes.

When enrolling your player for classes, they must turn the required age during the two months that the tuition cycle covers.

Example: Your child is currently 2, and you would like to enroll them for the 3 and 4-year-old age group at your location for the July/August period. Your child's birthday must fall during July or August for them to be eligible for that age group class. 

We apologize for the inconvenience. We no longer offer a program in Guam. 


When you enroll, you will enter a membership for 2023. You will authorize Tiny Troops Soccer to enroll you in our membership program at that time. When enrolling in a 2023 class, you will pay the current tuition and automatically enroll in autopay for the remaining tuition fees.

Tuition fees are collected every 8 weeks and include 6 classes + 2 virtual classes per period. 2023 tuition fee due dates are 12/15/2023, 02/15/2023, 04/15/2023, 06/15/2023, 08/15/2023, and 10/15/2023.

If you are enrolling part-way through the year, you will pay the current tuition fee and be automatically enrolled into auto-pay for the remaining tuition.

No. You will meet at the same time and place each week. If a field change is warranted, Tiny Troops Soccer will send notification via email about the change.

This depends on the age of your child. 

2-year-old classes are Parent and Me and are not combined with any other age. One parent or other adult is on the field with the child at all times during the class.

3-year-old classes can be run separately from 4-year-old classes or may be combined. Both ages use the same lesson plans. It is up to the parent to decide if they prefer the mixed-age grouping or if they would prefer to be in a group where both ages are separated.

We keep our classes small to allow coaches to interact and work with players as much as possible.

2-Year-Old Classes: All 2-year-old classes have up to 8 players on the field, plus a parent/guardian for each player.

3-4-Year-Old Classes: Our older classes have up to 10 players on the field.

Yes. A parent/guardian must be at each class for the duration of the class 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 on the field for the entire class for 2-year-old Parent and Me groups.

Our program offers skill-building classes. Unlike other youth soccer programs, our 3 & 4-year-olds only scrimmage for a few minutes during classes 3-6. This maximizes the time spent on age-appropriate skills. We also incorporate games in lesson plans that help prepare Troopers for scrimmages. 

No. For the safety of your child, snacks may not be given. We do not want them to bring their snack onto the field and begin play, as this creates a choking hazard. Please bring plenty of water, as that is all they will need.

No, Make-ups are only offered if we cancel a class due to a weather or Coach emergency. Make-up classes are built into each class schedule and occur at regularly scheduled times on select Sundays. 

If you need to contact the coach to inform them of the absence, please send a message to our Facebook page or an email to, and we will let the coach know for you.

Tiny Troops Soccer's makeup policy is as follows:

  • We preschedule 2 make-up classes at all locations for canceled classes due to weather or coach emergencies.
  •  Make-ups classes are generally scheduled on Sundays at regular class times.

Make-ups, refunds, and credits are unavailable for missed classes due to personal reasons. (vacations, illness, etc.)

Soccer is an outdoor rain or shine sport! If conditions are deemed dangerous and a weather cancellation is necessary, the decision will be made 45 minutes prior to the start time of class.

  • Cancellations will be posted in the League Apps app/your account under the events/schedule section.
  • An email and text (if opted in) will also be sent with the rescheduled date and time.
  • If there is no notification, classes are a go!
