Mighty Kicks aims to prepare children for a transition into a club environment. Fundamental movement & ball mastery skills are still emphasisied. We encourage children to take up a wide variety of sports. This way, children will start to demonstrate a strong sense of fairness, which is reinforced through our program with introduction to simple rules & ethics of the game. Simple tactics are introduced (basic defending & attacking principles). The beginning of independence from family begins in line with such events as starting school. Friendships begin to come to the fore - Physical, social & mental skills begin to rapidly develop & it's a critical time for a child to develop confidence. Mighty Kicks aims to  play a big part in these very important early developmental years.
