About Little Kickers

At Little Kickers we have four different soccer classes each tailored to a different age group. However, we have two core beliefs that we take into every session.

Firstly, we believe in something we call “Play not Push”. It means teaching soccer in a fun, pressure-free environment. We want to give children a positive introduction to sport as a whole, not just soccer, so they’re more likely to stay healthy and active throughout their lives.

Secondly, we believe soccer can be educational. Coached in the right way it can stimulate imagination and aid early development skills such as learning colours and numbers, following instructions and playing as a team.

It’s an approach that has bagged us numerous awards and helped us expand globally over the last 12 years. And like all our Kickers, we never stop learning. We’re continually improving and updating our classes, based on feedback and input from child health specialists as well as our network of over 1,500 soccer coaches worldwide.

Step 1 -  Soccer kit……check!

Step 2 – Soccer ball, where could it be I know Lenny hasn’t visited me all week so it must be around here somewhere. Ahhhh here we go, soccer ball….check!

I know my coaches can be quite sneaky, you never know when a pirate or a monkey may pop up during class, I must be prepared for all scenarios. They won’t be able to catch me!!

Game plan check, don’t worry team I will fill you in before class just make sure that sneaky Lenny doesn’t find out our plan of attack. It should be a fun class we may even be able to catch all the silly animals who try to sneak up on us!

A Little Kickers life #YourTurnChallenge

Day 1 Monday:

Is it Monday again? I think I should stay here all day!

Do you not know what I have just done all weekend? Well let me tell you! First we had a giant HUNGRY HIPPO show up at our soccer class and we had to feed him all of the soccer balls.

THEN you will never guess what happened! Lenny the pirate came out to play.

Little did he know how fast I can run and I made it all the way to the other island without being captured.

BUT before we knew it Lenny the pirate abandoned his ship and was trying to steal all of our soccer balls, but we have been practicing every week to make sure he doesn’t get them.

And we did IT!! Well done everyone, we managed to escape that silly pirate for now. I think it is only fair I get to sleep on the couch all day. See everyone tomorrow!
