Lil’ Kickers (Kindy Football)



Rivers’ Lil’ Kickers 2018 

(Kindy Football Programme)

Next year will see the commencement of Rivers’ Lil’ Kickers, an introductory football programme for 3 – 5 year olds.

Lil’ Kickers is designed for boys and girls that are new to the sport and provides a stepping stone to the team-based Aldi MiniRoos Club Football (ages 5-11).

The purpose of Rivers Lil’ Kickers is

  • To deliver a fun, engaging, and structured football experience to beginning football players aged 3-5 years.
  • To service the local football community through coaching, participation, or transition outcomes.

Do you have a child keen to learn football in a fun, friendly environment? Then our Lil’ Kickers programme is just right for you.

The weekly sessions are the perfect introduction to the world’s most popular game for boys and girls aged between 3 and 5. Children are given a ball and have a ball!

Coaches take the class through a series of football drills that focus on fun before sticking on bibs and playing a match in the 45 minute sessions.

Every player gets plenty of time on the ball and the prime aim of each session is for children to build fundamental motor skills in a fun, engaging, and inclusive environment. Each Coach has no more than 10 children under their control in any one session.

Each child also receives a Participant Pack when they register.
