About Little Kickers Eastbourne
As the currency of the school yard, there’s little doubt that football has a lot to offer the next generation of fleet-footed playground participants.
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.
As soon as your child reaches 18months, he/she should be more than ready to sign on the line for Little Kicks (18mths – 2yrs 3mths). Classes consist of an infectiously enthusiastic coach inviting you and your child to join forces for a first foray into all things football – nothing too clever just 45 minute sessions of full-on footy fun.
By the time one reaches Junior Kickers (2 – 3½) it’s probably about time for most parents to retreat to the sidelines for a well-earned breather, although in truth our turnstile is never really shut, because one never knows when one might need to return to the pitch for one last lap of honour.
Mighty Kickers (3½ – 5th bday) as the name implies is the point where most kids now choose to go it alone. However this welcome demonstration of independence doesn’t mean they won’t want their No.1 fan supporting them from the sidelines.
And finally, Mega Kickers (5 – 7th bday). This programme is run in selected areas only and enables our more footy-impassioned Little Kickers to continue building on their skills once they have started school.
