First Kicks

First Kicks is Fun!

These sessions are aimed at 4 - 6 year olds with or without any previous experience kicking a ball.

We spend about three quarters of an hour at Neale Park on a Saturday morning which is divided into 5 periods of 8 mins each (with time for a quick drink between them). Two of those periods are 4 vs 4 games of football.

The children rotate round different squares with an adult "Game Leader" in each square for a different football related activity in each.

Shorts and closed shoes are a good idea, but other than that there are no dress restrictions.

Beware, your meal times will come to be dominated by descriptions of what your children got up to last Saturday at FK and what they plan to do next week!

We need parents to volunteer to act as "Game Leaders" and various other admin roles so here is your chance to put something into the community so all our children can enjoy a good productive run around.

You do not need to know about Football to be a "Game Leader". your Parental Skills of talking to and having fun with kids is perfect. You will be provided with Game Sheets explaining the simple 10 min skills/games.

First Kicks is fun for the children, very sociable for parents and very rewarding for those who volunteer.
