Class Descriptions

Lil’ Kickers is tailored to how kids learn at different ages – using soccer to help kids tackle key developmental milestones. Every aspect of our curriculum was created with child development experts and our coaches are highly trained to work effectively with kids of all ages.


Bunnies classes introduce toddlers to soccer with games that allow them to run, play as a group and kick a ball. They gain basic soccer skills while building fundamental skills such as balance and coordination. Classes incorporate activities that are geared toward a toddler’s unique way of learning and including parachutes, bubbles, noodles, cones, lots of goal scoring and more.

  • 50-minute class
  • Parent participation is required
  • Child/coach ratio: 15:1 (with parents on field)


Parents and kids, led by one of our instructors, play organized games together to develop listening skills, balance, ball skills and foot-eye coordination. Thumpers is the ideal next step for Bunnies veterans who are not yet old enough for the Hoppers level, and a perfect introduction to Lil’ Kickers for new players.

  • 50-minute class
  • Parent participation is required
  • Child/coach ratio: 12:1 (with parents on field)


Cottontails is a class designed for children who are ready for more of a challenge than a Thumpers class, but who are not quite ready to be on the field without a parent or caregiver. The Cottontails curriculum is designed to build fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, and ball kicking. Cottontails classes also offer another component – helping your child build a sense of independence. As children progress through the session and become ready for more independence, parents can choose to transition to a less active role in the class.

  • 50-minute class
  • Child/coach ratio: 12:1 (with parents on field)


Hoppers classes are designed to be fun and fast paced. Classes focus on increasing balancing skills, coordination and fundamental soccer skills. We utilize creative games and help kids develop listening skills, cooperation and teamwork. Hoppers classes are the first class where children participate independently.

  • 50-minute class
  • Child/coach ratio: 7:1


Jackrabbits classes are designed to help transition children into non-competitive team play. Children play creative games to develop fundamental soccer skills and will also be introduced to more one-ball oriented games and scrimmaging. The focus of the scrimmages will be to help players understand how to apply skills in different situations and building teamwork. Some small sided non-competitive soccer games are introduced.

Big Feet

Big Feet classes are for five and six year-olds who have not played soccer before. These classes concentrate on giving beginning kids a set of basic soccer skills (dribbling, passing, trapping, scoring) and some confidence on the field. Kids will be introduced to the ideas of sportsmanship and team play. Kids will play some small-sided, non-competitive soccer games to help prepare them for Micro Classes.

  • 50-minute class
  • Child/coach ratio: 12:1

Micro Classes

Micro Classes are developmental and non-competitive for intermediate kids ages 4-9 years designed to enhance individual and team skills, with an emphasis on fun and safety. Micro Classes are for kids who have played soccer before either in Lil’ Kickers or another program.

  • 50-minute class (15-20 minutes of instruction; 20-25 minutes of scrimmaging)
  • Teams for scrimmage field a maximum of four players at a time
  • Everyone gets equal playing time

Off The Wall Sports Customer Credit Policy

We have collected payment for the Spring Lil Kickers which we were unable to offer due to the pandemic. We are now reopening fully as of July 4 in Stage 5 of the Indiana Back on Track plan.

If you have prepaid for Lil Kickers, we have issued a credit on your account for the prepaid fees. You are now welcome to register for Lil Kickers or other Off The Wall Sports programs and use your account credit as you wish.

Refunds may be requested on a first come first served basis. The Covid-19 shutdown has left Off The Wall Sports completely closed for nearly 3 months. As a result, we are financially unable to refund all credits up front. We appreciate
your patience in this matter as very few have requested a refund to this point. If a refund is your best alternative and you cannot use the account credit, we will be happy to add your name to a refund list. As we begin to recover financially from
the shutdown, a few refunds will be issued weekly. Your further patience is requested as the future is unknown.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and we value your business. We look forward to seeing everyone again. Be safe.
