Virtua and Little Kicks Soccer Team Up in New PartnershipVirtua and Little Kicks Soccer Corporation have teamed up in a new partnership with the hope of bringing more awareness to pediatric sports medicine in the community.
Little Kicks Soccer, a mobile program located throughout New Jersey and Northeast Philadelphia, teaches children ages 18 months to eight years old basic soccer skills through instructional clinics and organized games. Clinics are organized by five different age groups, the younger which encourage parent participation. The classes focus on developing motor skills, encouraging team spirit, and instilling self-confidence in a non-competitive atmosphere that allows children to flourish physically, socially, and emotionally.
“Virtua’s partnership with Little Kicks Soccer is an effort to help parents understand the importance of pediatrics sports medicine and the services available for their young athletes,” said Paul Kasper, Director of the Sports Medicine Program at Virtua.
