Teaching soccer has always been a passion of mine. I started coaching younger kids twenty year ago in Central Park in New York City. I love sharing my love of the game. Growing up in Ireland we ate, slept, and breathed ‘Football’ or what we know over here as ʻsoccer’. In my classes I want to share this and treat every kid like my own child. I want our Keiki Soccer Pro classes to be the most fun your child has had all week.
For me, it’s not only teaching them the basics of soccer, but making it the most enjoyable experience they have. When I see kids in our classes laughing and smiling when our coaches or myself are being funny or goofy, and seeing them improve every week, brings the most joy. We want our little ones to forget about any stress they may have and just have fun. Kids are like sponges and learn quick, especially in a playful, nurturing setting.
Being outdoors and keeping kids fit is also so important. There are too many distractions nowadays and being stuck at home during the pandemic has weighed heavy on our keiki. Growing up we never had to worry about anything and we played outdoors for hours, especially playing soccer. Nowadays kids spend a lot of time on there iPads etc. Soccer is one of the best and easiest sports to play, especially for our youngest. It has a lot of movement, unlike other sports and anyone with any skill level can participate in our program.
We have served over 3,300 families in Maui for the past nine years and are always open to new families. We know it can be hard for families coming to Maui with pre-school aged kids to meet others and have seen friendships blossom and ʻohanas expand. It is such a great way for your keiki to meet new friends, run off excess energy, and stay fit and healthy all year round.
We hope you can join us at Keiki Soccer Pros. We serve ages between 2 to 9, island wide, all four seasons. Our professional trained soccer coaches will teach your child the beautiful game in a fun and safe environment.
