One Touch Soccer Academy

We have revamped the FISCaroos programs. New name. New classes.  Through a partnership with Michael & Son Sportsplex in Dulles, we are offering SoccerBugs and One Touch Soccer Academy. All classes will be held at FISC.

The SoccerBugs program uses play as a catalyst to develop motor skills, balance and coordination, hand-eye coordination, and social skills. Using the latest concepts in child development, the curriculum is progressively based. You will not be disappointed at the advancements your child makes from week one to the final week of class.
