It might be worth trying Little Kickers in a different location. DD went for a few years and it was great, but towards the end they got in new coaches because the old coach bought the franchise, and the new coaches were nowhere near as good and would get frustrated with the kids and punish the whole group by not giving stickers at the end because a few kids were naughty. Up until that point it was great and I think the program is good. There's usually heaps of little Kickers venues around so maybe try another or speak to the owner of the franchise and see if there's a better coach suitable for your DS. DD learnt great skills not just in sports and soccer but in listening to instruction, waiting her turn, sharing etc.
