According to Unicef Kid Power, ages 3 to 6 is a good starting age for kids in Soccer.
Unicef Kid said, on the lower end of this age group, it is important to know your kid. While the above may still apply, if you feel your kid’s attention span has improved and they have expressed an interest in playing soccer, it could be a good time to get them involved with your local soccer club.

1. Improves motor coordination. Soccer is a very active sport that improves endurance and speed, as well as motor and visuospatial coordination to handle the ball with the feet while running, making passes, or scoring goals. It also improves peripheral vision, reaction speed, and physical agility.
