The Mini Kickers programme was launched by Sportscape in April 2014 and is a great way for youngsters to meet like-minded footie players and have fun. The programme has been developed around the Early Years and Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), so children will also learn valuable skills in numeracy, literacy, colour recognition and communication and of course, it’s also a great way to introduce kids to sports and exercise.
Sportscape MD, Matt Johnson, has this to say about the initiative:
‘The Mini Kickers programme has been far more successful than we ever thought and is the ideal introduction to sports for younger football fans, which is why we’re planning on expanding the initiative next year. To help discover future football stars, we offer a free taster session to all new players’
Mini Kickers Sessions are based at Shavington Leisure Centre & Whitchurch SJT Leisure Centre on Saturday mornings throughout school term-time.
