MINI - KICKERS
Football play program for children aged 2 - 5 years
Mini - Kickers is a professional sports play program specially designed for children (2 years to 5 years old) and has been developed to nurture young children's social skills, promote physical fitness, cultivate imagination and of course teach Soccer skills!
Our mission is to engage more and more children in physical activity, using football as a medium. We use the three "E's" as our foundation... energy, enthusiasm and excitement! This along with imaginative activities, colourful equipment, and decades of experience means we can engage children and ensure they have full enjoyment from participating in sports.
Our curriculum has been designed to help children develop as people and sports enthusiasts, the program helps build confidence and self-esteem from interaction with their peers in a fun environment. Children will be improving their coordination, balance, speed, spatial awareness and listening skills, all of which will be valuable skills to take with them throughout life.
(2 - 3 Years Old)
Parent Participation Class
At this age, our approach is focused on stimulating physical development, social skills, communication & football fundamentals. Sessions provide a fun introduction to football through play, children will learn to share and take turns whilst engaging in activities involving colours, numbers and shapes. Children will begin to develop their physical skills in the areas of coordination, balance and agility. Children will be taught basic ball control, kicking, stopping, dribbling and of course scoring goals!
(3 - 4 Years Old)
Non Parent Participation Class
At this age the ball is introduced more & more! Sessions build on foundation skills and basics through play. Children will progress rapidly, applying the balance they have already developed to control the ball in new ways. Sessions don't usually require parent participation and this can be daunting for young children but we provide a fun and safe learning environment where your child will be encouraged to move from parent-supported participation to independent play. Children will engage in simple problem-solving activities designed to introduce key physical and social skills which improve overall confidence. Our activities are designed to be lots of fun and have football fundamentals built into them, the children are learning essential skills whilst going on safari or searching for treasure!
(4 - 5 Years Old)
Non Parent Participation Class
Activities for this age group are centred around ball control and coordination skills. Children will learn more challenging commands and develop good habits such as holding their head up while practising footwork. Sessions are fast-paced and increasingly football-focused, keeping fun and development at the centre and also introducing the importance of teamwork by cooperating with other children in small groups and gameplay. Activities involving controlling the ball in the air are introduced along with moves to beat players! Within these sessions we focus not only on teaching children how to perform a skill, but also to start building an understanding of why the skill is needed.
