The real goal of Little Kickers, is to use football as a fun forum to instill our growing squad with a little extra confidence, co-ordination, control and sense of camaraderie; which we feel will stand them in very good stead for the future. 

Ballet

Ballet lessons have three major cognitive benefits. First of all, they expand vocabulary through learning the French names of the steps and hearing the musical terms. Secondly, they develop their musicality and rhythm through coordinating their bodies to the music. A third cognitive benefit, noted by MV Dance and Performing Arts, is that memorizing new steps and dances improves memory in young ballet students.

Playball

At face value, Playball programs seem to have only two main objectives - improving basic movement skills and refining sport skills and techniques. However the success of this seemingly “sport program” is in actual fact that through competent sports participation, achieved through sound coaching principles, children secure a solid base from which to develop many other and more important aspects of their lives.
