In a world where everyone is increasingly used to working with electronic devices, at Luna de Papel they take a step back and focus on practical life skills that teach an appreciation for handcrafts. Children today are used to instant gratification, this can stifle the ability to strive for longer-term goals. Handcrafts take commitment but they teach children that they can achieve great things if they take them one step at a time. At Luna de Papel, they teach children how to “create”. When they learn to create they learn that they can control their environment and that builds a tremendous amount of self-esteem. Their goal is to build self-esteem through self-expression that is more approachable, authentic, and sustainable than simple art.

THE SOCCER LEARNING CENTER

41 Tuers Avenue in Jersey City (Journal Square).
Since 2002, The Soccer Learning Center has introduced thousands of area children to the authentic and correct methods to learn soccer – in an instructional, knowledgeable and disciplined academy environment uniquely created to appeal to the learning styles of young students.
Our classes establish an early foundation for athletic excellence in your child. Travel team and recreational league coaches tell us constantly – TSLC athletes stand out for their knowledge, discipline, and skill. Many of the students who started with us as young children go on to play in competitive level travel, high school and college soccer teams. Your child does not need any soccer experience to participate in our classes. Activities focus upon fitness, skill-building, technical and tactical abilities, team play, sportsmanship and more.
Our academy’s curriculum is carefully organized to match the appropriate development of our selected age groups. Classes are kept small to encourage a deeper, hands-on understanding of the day’s lesson. Each session builds upon the last so every player learns, step by step, the skills and techniques needed for success in soccer.
We’re proud to be celebrating our 18th year of providing Hudson County with the best in professional soccer coaching for both children and adults – and thank our TSLC families for supporting our small business.
Classes are instructed by Coach Alex Lalaoui, a USSF “A” licensed coach and USSF Instructor.
