Little Hammers/Junior Hammers

Overview

The Little Hammers and Junior Hammers program (formerly known as the Blount United Soccer Academy) focuses on setting the basic foundations of skill and technical play.  

Little Hammers (ages 4 & 5) - Cost per Season - $85 (includes jersey)

The Little Hammers program is great for an introduction to the game of soccer. Our coaches introduce basic skills in a fun, relaxed environment. Team sizes are kept small, allowing our coaches to provide direct, timely feedback as they introduce skills, terminology, and the fundamentals of soccer. 

  • Two, one-hour practices per week (Tuesday - skills, Friday - fun & games)
  • Minimal requirements: soccer shoes, shinpads, water bottle, size 3 soccer ball

Junior Hammers (ages 6 & 7) - Cost per Season - U7 $100/U8 $125 (includes jersey, referee fees)

The Junior Hammers program builds on the skills gained as a Little Hammer (or elsewhere) and begins to prepare our athletes for our competitive teams. Athletes are coached in a fun, inclusive, technically sound way, and they receive "travel team" coaching without the travel or expense. Team sizes are kept small, allowing our coaches to provide direct, timely feedback as they reinforce skills, terminology, and the fundamentals of soccer. 

  • Two, one-hour practices per week (Tuesday - skills, Friday - fun & games)
  • To prepare for competitive play, these teams will play a couple friendlies throughout the season against other local programs
  • What to Bring: soccer shoes, shinpads, water bottle, size 3 (6 yr olds) or size 4 (7 yr olds) soccer ball
