Our son was only crawling when we first heard about Little Kickers, perhaps the greatest sporting concept aimed at the little ones.

They cater for kids from 18 months through to 7 years of age, with four different classes on offer. This is about fun, making friends, building their confidence and developing physical coordination.

Every kid feels special with their uniform. Part of the team. Boots on.

“We give your children a positive introduction to sport by teaching high quality football (soccer) skills in a friendly, pressure-free environment.”

When we had a child on the way, I already had my sports dad dreams of coaching an under-7s basketball or football team some day. Having good times. Little Kickers is a brilliant way to see them having fun and getting involved in a team dynamic.

They have groups all over Australia. Check their website to see if there’s one close to you. Prices are reasonable compared to other activities.

This is an open net.
