'Caps Kick-Smart Program presented by Oasis
Vancouver Whitecaps FC has been part of the community since 1974. The club has a vested interest in making sure our youth have the tools and opportunities to make positive life choices. The goal of the 'Caps Kick-Smart program is to introduce all kids to soccer in a fun and interactive way, inspiring them to make activity a big part of their lives. The program consists of a demonstration including tips from Whitecaps FC coaches, players, and alumni, like Carl Valentine and former Whitecaps FC player and national team star Sam Lenarduzzi.
Throughout the demonstration we focus on the importance of:
- Sportsmanship and positive attitude on the field, in school, and at home
- Hard work and reaching your potential
- Healthy lifestyle choices
'Caps Kick-Smart Program Details
The 'Caps Kick-Smart Program is designed for Lower Mainland elementary school students grades 1 to 7 (ages 6 to 12). Students will enjoy a 45 minute indoor demonstration on soccer basics such as passing, juggling, ball control, heading, and dribbling. During the demonstration there will be an opportunity for selected students to attempt these skills while being encouraged by their peers and Whitecaps FC coaches, players, and alumni.
The 'Caps Kick-Smart Program is presented by Oasis and is therefore offered to BC schools at no cost.
