We put Maklin in U4 TimBits Soccer this year. 2 1/2 is quite a bit Under-4. He was one of, if not the, youngest player on the team. He definitely doesn't 'get' soccer after this experience ... however he did learn quite a bit. He even scored a goal one 'game' (and I use the word game loosely: mad pandemonium of little kids and parents, some focused on the ball - no regard to which net mind you - and others focused on escaping to the nearby playground.
What a cool experience to have with your friends though. Learning new skills together. Learning to help each other out and depend on each other. Learning to be active. Meeting new people. Making new friends. Learning to respond to a coach.
Plus - Maklin rode his bike
to soccer twice a week, which really helped him figure out how to balance.
Double Plus - each night after soccer ... playground!!
