KINDER KICKERS - VISION SOCCER

CADETS I & CADETS II - VISION SOCCER

Ages: 3-5 Fee: $68 Location: Fair Oaks Park

Ages: 8-14 Fee: $72 (Cadets I) $82 (Cadets II) Location: Fair Oaks Park

The program curriculum uses fun games and activities to broadly introduce soccer concepts and team sports. Kinder Kicker participants will use their hands as well as their feet to learn these concepts. As this is an introduction to the sport, there are no special skills, knowledge, or equipment needed.

This program is for any 8-14 year-old player. While incorporating fewer games into sessions than our Junior Skills program, the focus is primarily given to skill development and execution. Our curriculum incorporates fun challenges and multi-skill combinations to continually challenge players as they work through a series of exercises that introduce basic to advanced 1v1 foot skills. Focus is also given to increasing proficiency in core skills and correcting bad habits. Players work in an environment where they are encouraged to be creative and to gain confidence in using a variety of skills. This program is intended for all players, whether they are new to soccer or a competitive level player

JUNIORS - VISION SOCCER Ages: 6-7 Fee: $65 Location: Fair Oaks Park This program is for any 6 or 7 year-old player. Our Juniors program is a bridge between the more technical work of our Cadets program (for 8 to 13 year-olds) and the heavily game-focused sessions of our Kinder Kickers program (3 to 5 year-olds). Our curriculum uses fun games and activities to introduce and refine core soccer skills, but more attention is focused on skill development and precision than in our foundational Kinder Kickers program. These programs are high-energy and encourage your child to challenge themselves to improve their foundational skills. This is still considered an introductory session to soccer, so no special skills or knowledge are needed Session 1:

The community showed up in force to make the event a truly memorable occasion. FORPD was so happy to see all of you who could attend. The monument sign is the last piece of the park that is still processing; the proof is approved and the sign should be manufactured soon. Stay tuned! The renovations in the village are still awaiting final approvals from the County. District staff is working as hard as they can to push this project along.

FORPD highlight JIM STRENG PARK - Now Open 8855 Swallow Way, Fair Oaks

The Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District (FORPD) is pleased to announce Jim Streng Park is now open! The grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on November 4, 2021 from 4:00p-6:00p. This brand new park features new play structures, seating areas, a bottle filling station, and more! Jim Streng Park provides easier park space access to families in the local neighborhoods which were blocked from other nearby parks by Hazel Avenue. The new additions of turf, seating areas, and play structures create a space for all to enjoy the benefits of being outdoors and recreating! This project was made possible by Measure J and Prop 68 funds. For more complete details on this and other projects please visit: https://forpd.icitywork.com/.
