First Kicks: 4 - 6 Years

Emphasis is on fun, and falling in love with Football

The First Kicks stage is a specially designed developmental programme about teaching a balance of Football Technique, General Movement, Football Co-ordination, mainly via Small Sided Games, allowing the game to be the teacher.

This program incorporates football skills with motor, physical, mental and social skills in a positive and non-competitive environment. It also builds self esteem, confidence, promotes sportsmanship and fair play while instilling a love and passion for the game of football.
