Mighty Kicks is excited to announce our new 2v2 School League that we will be starting for all of our school partners this spring! Our focus has always been to develop children through soccer fun, and we are excited to add in a league that will give children a game experience adapted for their developmental level. The main purpose of our 2v2 League is to adapt the game of soccer for the kids in front of us instead of the other way around. Developed in Belgium, this 2v2 format puts the needs of young soccer players first. Young soccer players are cognitively and physically ready to develop dribbling and scoring (shooting) skills and time is best spent on developing these skills first. The high level of complexity of the full form of the game doesn't fit with the cognitive capacities of young players, while the 2v2 model is a great fit our Mighty Kicks participants.
We hope you'll join us in our 2v2 league, we want to adapt soccer to fit the players we work with instead of the other way around. Children have their own unique characteristics, needs, and wants, and we are thrilled to be more flexible and offer a playing format that fits the growth and developmental needs of our players.
