At Little Kickers the focus is very much on fun - a national network of informal yet professionally run training classes where enthusiastic boys & girls (18mths – 7th birthday) are given a helping hand to stand on their own two feet.
Of course we believe that a head start in sport is a fantastic investment in the future and naturally we’d be as pleased as punch if any of our former pupils go on to greater glories in the golden game. However Little Kickers is not a guaranteed passport to football fame!
The real goal of Little Kickers, is to use football as a fun forum to instil our growing squad with a little extra confidence, co-ordination, control and sense of camaraderie; which we feel will stand them in very good stead for the future.
Play not push – a positive, fun-filled pre-school football programme executed in a friendly, pressure-free environment.
Guided by the likes of FA qualified coaches, nursery school teachers, child health specialists and pro-active parents, the Little Kickers toddler football programme is an ever-evolving quest to teach fundamental football techniques & elementary life skills in a vibrant, group play environment.
Invaluable social skills like listening, sharing, taking turns and teamwork are conscientiously woven into a involving programme that places as much emphasis on simple learning concepts like colours and numbers as it does on fine-tuning a child’s basic balance, agility and co-ordination.
A very level playing field
We recognise that every child is an individual, and feel that children develop their skills best when they are playing with other kids of a similar age and ability. As such, Little Kickers separate kids into four distinct age groups, which encourage each child to maximise their involvement and development potential. In summary, the real joy of our 4 pronged approach (Little Kicks, Junior, Mighty and Mega Kickers) is that we can offer a gently staggered learning environment for all our students, an enjoyable yet challenging pre-school football programme that is safe and always stays strictly within the student’s comfort zone.
Our experienced Little Kickers Brighton team teach across the area, from Shoreham- by - Sea to Rottingdean.West Sussex team teaches from Burgess Hill to Crawley and Horley and our Kent team teaches from Petts Wood to TunbrIdge Wells!View timetable

I have two sons. My eldest, who’s now 7, went to little kickers for 5 years (he is now too old to go) and my youngest, who is 4, also regularly attends Little Kickers. The coaches there are fantastic and have great rapport with the kids. They deal with the children really well and always have fun and laugh with them. Little Kickers is a great opportunity for the boys to exercise, have fun and interact with other kids their age.
Peter's been going to Little Kickers for over 3 years now and it is the best class of its type that we've found. We have to drive to it, but are happy to do so as we feel it is much better structured than other classes we've attended. The classes have nurtured Peter's skills in a much more fun way than we'd previously found. I feel that the structure of Phil's classes work. The success of classes such as these depend on the coaches and Phil has selected great coaches, and manages to get around the sites to keep up to date on everyone's progress. The only difficulty we have sometimes is the time of the classes as its the middle of the day for Peter's age group.
We are a really sporting family and were keen to pass on our sporting passion to our son. My son started going to Little Kickers when he was 18 months old. At first he struggled socially and also learning the skills. At 2 years old my son was diagnosed with Autism so we sat down and spoke to the Little Kickers coaches to see if they could provide any support for his development. One of the coaches had experience with autistic children and he was able to pass on his knowledge and experience to the others which in turn helped my son, Ryan. They have been fantastic and really engaged him. He now loves going to Little Kickers and he has really flourished. It has been great for his confidence and his social skills. The classes really couldn't be run any better.
My two (3 & 5 year olds) have been attending Little Kickers at King Center in East Grinstead on a Sunday morning. My son enjoyed it so much that my daughter asked to join too! Coach Harry is so good with them its all I hear about for the rest of the day! I would highly recommend the group for all ages - any time I have a question the people in the office are very helpful and efficient :)
I cant say enough good things about little kickers. My eldest son has been going every week since the age of 3. He is fast approaching 7 and this has set him up brilliantly for years to come. The coaching staff are all first class and have the ability to bring out the best in each child regardless of their ability. Having the option of an indoor facility is also priceless for obvious reasons particularly with the younger age group.
If anyone is thinking of getting the children into sport and wants to ensure it remains fun then Little Kickers is something which they should consider.
