ABOUT US

At the development ages of 4 to 7 years old, children generally don't have an appreciation for the benefits of building a skill nor do they associate any benefits with being good at something. They just want to play.

The First Kicks curriculum is designed to first introduce the fun, and thus the motivation, then add challenges. Our goal is to eventually get children to perform a particular exercise that builds a vital skill while they are fully engaged.

We aim to motivate children so that they become fully engaged. In order to maximise the rate of skill building, we believe an indirect “fun” approach works much faster and better than a traditional “direct” approach.

Once a child becomes settled in their strange new surroundings and get familiarised with the new faces they will be seeing, the benefits to that child are huge in terms of their football development and more importantly their development as happy, confident young people.

First Kicks passionately believe in small-sided games (SSGs) to teach skills and develop creative, confident players and children.

 

To complement our individually focused coaching sessions we also provide 4-7 yr old children the opportunity to learn through play at our weekly 'Festivals of Football' with various formats of the game that are proven to accelerate development.

 

No coaching, no instruction, no substitutes, no fixed goalkeepers - Just a perfect environment for young children to thrive in!
