Little Kickers

Football Classes in English

Little Kickers offers football classes in English to children ages 18 months to 7 years.  There are four classes, each tailored to a different age group and with different focuses. However, in every age group, there are two main beliefs. One is the belief in teaching ¨Play not Push¨. This means teaching football in a fun, pressure-free way, as to make sure the child enjoys  playing sport and doesn’t feel like they are being forced to do anything they don’t want. The other belief is that football can be educational. It can help with colors, numbers, teamwork, even language skills! Which is why Little Kickers is taught solely in English.
