Mini Kickers

Essex Football Coaching is delighted to announce that we are offering football classes for 18 month-5 year olds.

Where and when?

Sessions are held on Saturday mornings at Shenfield High School. We are able to offer a top- of-the-range facility with a fantastic viewing gallery for the parents to watch their children.  Each class lasts 45 minutes between 9.30 am – 11am. This allows us to offer your child the appropriate class for their age and ability.

18 – 30 months

Parents of toddlers who are aged 18-30 months are asked to stay with their child throughout the entire class. The session is based around allowing the toddler to take on a very simple task in their own time and at their own pace.

2-3 year olds

Parents of 2– 3 year olds are also required to stay in the sports hall with their child. This allows the coach to manage behaviour and aid the motor skills of each child by informing their parents of the task ahead. This allows for each child to progress at their own pace.

3-4 year olds

3 - 4 year olds take part in activities that are individually tailored. These classes are designed and based around colours, numbers and aid the children’s developing listening skills. Not only do the children improve their basic every-day skills, but they learn new skills through sport.

4 years +

Once they have reached the highest class of Mini-Kickers, the class is taught more advanced skills and more individual team competitions are involved. This prepares the boys and girls for when they graduate and progress to a youth team at Hutton FC.

Where do they go after Mini-Kickers?

Working in partnership with Hutton FC, our programme provides a route into youth football in partnership with one of the biggest football clubs in Essex. The club also trains at Shenfield High School on a Saturday but on the 3G Astroturf. To help the children adapt to the different environment, we allow for our coaches to help with the transition by providing a few taster sessions on the 3G, before the children to advance into youth football.
