FC Nova Tots Program - Program Overview

The FC Nova Soccer Club has been providing the youth of the Treasure Valley with the finest soccer training and facilities since 1990. Now in it's fifth year, the FC Nova Tots Program continues this tradition of excellence.

The FC Nova Tots Program introduces children to physical activities with and without a ball that will help the development of coordination, agility and balance.

FC Nova Tots Program (U4 - U5)

In the FC Nova Tots Program, children and their parents rotate through a series of four (4) play stations. Each station features one or more activities, and takes 15 minutes to complete. The final station (station 4) is used for actual mini-soccer games, so that your children will leave the field with the thrill of just having played soccer.

The players in the FC Nova Tots Program are divided into a number of groups, with each group consisting of about 10 children and 3 Tots Facilitators - specially-trained parents who will lead the other players and parents through the activities at each station.

  • Program consists of six one-hour sessions on Saturday mornings.
  • Parents are encouraged to participate with their children in this program.
  • Training is facilitated by a lead instructor and parent volunteers.
  • One parent from each family must volunteer for a position. Parents who volunteer as Tots Facilitators will receive special age-specific training from the FC Nova's professional staff.
  • Separate Fall and Spring sessions for maximum flexibility.
  • Electronic Registration/Email Notification

Parents must also provide a signed FC Nova Medical Release Form.
