18 months – 2.5 years ⭐ Mini Stars
Little Footy Stars “Mini Stars” is for babies and younger children beginning their activity sporting life and usually ranges from 18 months to 2.5 years (however, we do accept some children who want to join us at 16 months).
Using our Montessori method of teaching that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. We are able to help each child develop their motor cognitive and social skills which are especially important at this young age.
We often get asked “how can babies play football?” Well children are able to join in with our sessions as soon as they can walk, kicks and listen to instructions! Parents are expected to take part in these classes and help their child with the activities that the coaches do with them. This aspect with see your child’s independence grow as they start to participate in the classes without mum and dad.
We encourage each child to learn the basics of following instructions and all basic football skills. We learn through our experiences, which involve; Group activities, running, dodging, chasing, taking turns & sportsmanship! And most of all we involve everyone, no matter then ability!
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn” (Benjamin Franklin)
Little Footy stars is all about introducing children into the world of sport and active play, giving them a positive and fun experience which we believe will create a sporting habit for life.
