Mighty Mites Overview
MIGHTY MITES (Under 4) PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The Arkansas Rush Mighty Mites program is a unique opportunity to introduce your child to soccer. This program offers 45-minute sessions once a week for both you and your child. We feel the kids will be more comfortable and develop faster in this type of environment. You both will have fun working together. The coaching staff will introduce the game of soccer by developing the players motor skills, ball skills, and concepts of small-sided games. This program will give your child a great start to this lifetime sport. It will also prepare him/her for our Micro (U5-U8) soccer program. The Mighty Mites program is offered in both the Fall and Spring seasons.

How do I know if my child is ready?
It’s hard to have set criteria to determine if your child is ready. If they are ready for pre-school, then they will be ready for this clinic. If they can run and laugh, then they are ready.
What will we do in this program?
The program is setup for you to work one-on-one with your child under the direction of the Arkansas Rush Coaching staff. It is a fun learning environment which will include a series of games and exercises. These activities are not long in duration and are designed specifically for this age group.
Will there be teams and games?
