We were recently invited to sample a Lil Kicker’s Soccer Class at the Next Level Sports Complex in Garden Grove. We love getting the kids involved in sports activities, so naturally we were on board.Next Level Sports Complex 12821 Knott Street Garden Grove (714) 230-0706
We arrived at Next Level Sports Complex and were greeted by staff members who direct us to the soccer area (actually, VERY easy to find). The Lil Kickers staff introduced us to the coaches, who were super friendly and welcoming to all new and current students.
To enroll your child at Next Level Sports Complex’s Lil Kickers class you must sign up for an Annual Membership ($30 per person/$50 per family). Classes are approximately $15 per session (subject to change). Your child will receive a FREE uniform jersy with first time membership or renewal.
