DAYTON, OH (March 28th, 2022) Kings Hammer Soccer Club is excited to announce that it will be expanding its soccer programs to serve the greater Dayton communities. Kings Hammer will be offering the first two tiers of its development pathway – Grassroots (Little Lions & Camps) and the Premier Program in the Centerville, Dayton, and Xenia Communities.

Kings Hammer Little Lions (Ages u4-u8) is a program offered for new and beginner players as an introduction to the game of soccer. Using soccer as a tool to help kids reach various physical and cognitive development milestones, the program also promotes self-confidence and fosters the love of the game. Led by KH staff, each session is held at club hosted sites, pre-schools, daycares, after school programs and club hosted sites.

The Kings Hammer Premier Program (Ages u8-u19) is designed to provide players with the opportunity to train and prepare for the journey to the Kings Hammer Academy Program. The Premier Program also provides the opportunity for players to play other sports or have other interests outside of soccer. This program is designed to be flexible, convenient, and affordable. This program will be offered at home sites in the Centerville, Dayton, and Xenia communities.

“Kings Hammer is thrilled to be expanding its programs to the greater Dayton communities. As an organization, Kings Hammer has received a lot of interest over the last several years in expanding its services to the greater Dayton area. Our goal is to work with some of the local clubs to create healthy environments to improve the game across the region.” – Kevin McCloskey, Kings Hammer COO.

“I am looking forward to expanding our Grassroots footprint to include the greater Dayton area. The newest and youngest participants in the game are often forgotten, so I’m excited to bring our Little Lions program, which exposes these players to motor, cognitive, and social-emotional skills, as well as our club values, to the area!” – Michelle Okumura, Kings Hammer Grassroots Executive.

“I am excited for Kings Hammer to be able to offer our Premier Program in the Dayton area. We have created an exciting player pathway for u8s though u12s that focuses on creating an environment where players are having fun, learning to compete, learning to cooperate, and are being exposed to our Club’s core values and principles of play. Thrilled to get started!” Michael Ratliff, Kings Hammer Premier Executive.

Grassroots registrations for Summer and Fall Little Lions and Camps will be released later this spring for the Dayton area.

Premier Program information on locations, tryout options and upcoming partnerships will be released shortly.
