ALBION Hawaii Keiki Academy Program
ALBION Hawaii's Keiki Academy program is a unique opportunity to introduce your 4, 5, and 6 year old to the beautiful game of soccer.
The curriculum, designed by ALBION Hawaii Keiki Academy Director Mike Adrian, is a fun-filled introduction to soccer. Children are encouraged to grow developmental, physical, and social abilities through creative soccer games, agility drills, and guided scrimmages. In addition, each Keiki Academy player will learn the skills of ball control, dribbling, turning, and the game's basic rules.
The ALBION Hawaii Keiki Academy is the first of four programs designed to guide your child through the ALBION Hawaii player pathway program.
By the time players graduate from our Keiki Academy program, they should:
Social: Grasp essential life lessons such as respecting their teammates and coaches, the significance of listening during instruction, and the importance of teamwork.
Physical: Develop motor skills, balance, flexibility, and agility.
Psychological: Be motivated and inspired by soccer through this encouraging and fun environment.
Technical: Understand the fundamental rules of the sport - to not use their hands, understand the boundaries of the field, to become familiar with the direction of play.
Player Expectations: Players are provided an ALBION Hawaii Capelli training kit. We expect players to wear their ALBION training kit with soccer cleats, socks, and shin guards. In addition, we ask that each player bring a size three soccer ball.
Parent Expectations: Parent involvement is sometimes crucial for developing a long-lasting love for soccer in the ALBION Keiki Academy program. If your child struggles to participate in a game or activity, we encourage you to step in and help out. We also hope that you communicate any concerns or issues with our program. We strive to ensure that all of our members have a positive experience.
Coach Expectations: The ALBION Hawaii staff will ensure that coaches will receive a coaching plan for each session and that fields are correctly set before training.
Becoming a coach is a rewarding process. We encourage anyone interested in coaching to contact our ALBION Keiki Academy Director, Mike Adrian.
