The Kinderkicks program is a fun recreational program for registered players who are Natick residents and currently attending kindergarten. The program is clinic-based and is designed to provide the players with an outdoor activity to introduce them to soccer through a variety of fun games.

  • Sessions run in the fall and in the spring for 6 weeks on Saturday mornings.
  • Cost is $75 each season. This includes a ball and t-shirt given out at the parent meeting.
  • Participants must be a current Kindergarten student and be a resident of Natick.
  • Fall season typically begins late September and ends early November.
  • Spring season typically begins late April and ends mid June.
  • Clinic-style program: Approximately 25 minutes of skills and 25 minutes of small-sided games.
  • Note: There are no teams in Kinderkicks, this is a clinic-based program.

Cancellation or postponement of a session is rare.  However, the Natick Soccer Club will post field closing information on our home page or follow us on Twitter @NatickSoccer during the season for questionable weather days.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can my child play Kinderkicks if five years old but not in kindergarten?
No, all Kinderkicks players must be a current kindergarten student and a resident of Natick.  You may receive an email requesting proof of enrollment and birth certificate if there’s a question about eligibility.
2. Can my child attend a different time slot from the session for which we registered?
No, we have limited number of coaches to manage a specific number of players and this can make the experience less enjoyable for all.  Your cooperation is appreciated.
3. What equipment does my child need?
All players are required to wear shin guards.  Cleats are optional but recommended. Bring water to all sessions.  These items are purchased separately for the players and are not included with the fee.  Program fee includes a shirt and size 3 ball.
4. What happens in the event of inclement weather?
NSC typically posts the field status by 7:00-7:15am for morning activities.  The status may be posted directly on the website, via our Twitter feed, and occassionally communicated directly via email depending on time of notification.
5. Does Kinderkicks make up canceled sessions?
We usually reserve the last weekend of the season as a make up date if one or more sessions are canceled.  It is not uncommon for 1-2 sessions per season to be canceled due to inclement weather or field conditions.
6. What is the Kinderkicks refund policy?

80% refund if withdrawn by August 31st (for Fall season) or March 31st (for Spring season).  No refund if player is withdrawn after August 31st (for Fall season) or March 31st (for Spring season).  The refund policy may also appear on your registration receipt.
