Little Kickers – offering pre-school football coaching from 18 months to 7 years
Having failed to find local football classes for their own toddler, Swindon parents Emma and Christian Northway decided to set up their own programme, and invested in a Little Kickers franchise, offering pre-school football coaching for toddlers and young children between the ages of 18 months and 7 years.
Commenting on their motivation Emma said: “We’ve always loved football and this provided a great opportunity to put the successes of the Olympics into practice and to inspire a new generation to get involved in sport at an early age.”
Little Kickers began in London ten years ago, when, much like Emma and Christian, the founders wanted to give their footie-mad kids somewhere to play from the youngest age. They also wanted to do something to tackle childhood obesity.
The programme has been developed by child-health specialists and UK FA qualified coaches, with the emphasis on learning through play, and based on the motto ‘play not push.’
Classes run at venues in Swindon and Cirencester.
