My little boy had been asking to do 'football' for a little while after hearing about little kickers and finding a session he can attend (longbenton Newcastle). I thought we would give it a go. Lewis doesn't really like being away from his mammy and does not have a lot of confidence to go off with other people to participate in group activities so I only booked 6 sessions.

He's onto his 4th session (having missing one due to being poorly) and he went to participate in it all by his self. He absoutly loves it! Even when he was poorly said he had missed his football. Today he was sooooo happy to join in with out mammy by his side. And I enjoyed being able to sit and watch him join in. The coaches are VERY helpful and welcoming. Especially Coach James. They have all the time in the world for the children and include everyone. It's not to much for the children and they are learning new skills every week. At first I was a little unsure I thought it would be strict rules etc but after
seeing the first session and my little one loving it and learning though play and Watching him enjoy it. He loves the football strip you get it's hard to get it off him!! Even had to take him shopping for 'football boots'

I will be rebooking more sessions as it is defiantly a hit with my little boy!

Coach Conner, Ross and Sam who run Little Kickers at Dorking Halls,
Surrey.

I was really impressed with the way they ran the group, their
interaction with kids was really very commendable and I'd have no
hesitation in recommending the group to others.

Sebastian loves attending little kickers every Sunday
morning and the patience that Coach Devante shows every week with 10
or 12 two year olds is beyond admirable. He know's each and every name
despite new people starting every week and taking multiple classes.

We've signed up again without fail and look forward to seeing Seb
scoring more goals as he loves to tell everybody.

I just wanted to message to say a huge thank you to Luke, Mikey and Jasmine at the Claygate class. Unfortunately Edward has come to the end of his time at little kickers as will be attending nursery as from September. The coaches have been absolutely brilliant, always organised and enthusiastic with all the children. They always tried to get Edward involved if he was having an "off" day and their patience has meant that Edward is now much more happy in group settings and has learnt to listen well to other adults. All of the games and activities were perfect for the age group and I have loved watching Edwards confidence grow.

Thank you very much.

Kind regards

Claire

Coach Dean at Little Kickers - Samuel Ryder Academy, does a fantastic job. His enthusiasm to help the children improve each week shines through, and his humour ensures they enjoy every session. My son, Jake, has improved tremendously over the last year-and-a-half - in both confidence and ability - and much of the credit should go to Dean. Thank you so much.

Having been involved with Little Kickers for around 18 months as a parent I have seen enormous benefits in attending such a club. These sessions are professionally run by Scott Cormack who always exudes enthusiasm which 'rubs off' on the children!

The children enjoy the sessions and develop, not only physically and socially but also psychologically as they come away displaying their pleasure at being involved in the activities. The activities are inclusive of all the children as no child is left on the sidelines as games can be accessed at each child's own level.

Little Kickers is great for team building as they need to work together on some of the activities. This is an excellent quality to see in Reception and Year 1 children as a teacher and is part of getting on in life and something every child should aim for they mature. Children are also given the opportunity to improve on a personal level as well as develop their football skills. They gain encouragement throughout each activity through positive feedback from the coaches.

The Little Kickers sessions are great for children on a personal fitness level as they are very active through their time in the lesson and of course it is extra-curricular. The coaches are also keen to point out the health benefits of eating sensibly and drinking water as part of their Little Kickers training regime.

I highly recommend Scott Cormack and Little Kickers as it is beneficial all round to children of Early Years and Key Stage 1 ages.

Faith Firkins Year 1 Teacher
Scott is a brilliant coach, he has a fantastic way with young children. His classes are fun, engaging and energetic; his use of stories and games draw the children in to learn new skills. Every child feels successful at the end of the session and goes home with a smile of their face!

Petrina Charnley-Monk CLA Achievement Teacher at Cumbria County Council
A fantastic session for your pre-school children to play some wonderfully imaginative games all based around football. While playing they will develop their social skills and learn their numbers and colours. You will be amazed at what 2 and 3 year olds can do during a Little Kickers session.

Chris Hill, Headteacher of Eastfield Primary School and Nursery, Northampton
Although we have done so in person, can you please put it on record and let the coaches know that Zac has absolutely loved Little Kickers. The coaches are absolutely superb and have created a wonderful, fun and exciting environment for Zac and all of the children. They could not be any better at their jobs or any better with the children. It has been a joy and a pleasure to spend our Saturday mornings with them for the last two years and I know Zac will sorely miss going.

As Harry has finally finished his time at Little Kickers, I thought I'd drop you a line to say thank you for entertaining, putting up with and training our two oddballs.

I'm sure every week brought fresh challenges, to see what Arthur was dreaming about this week, or what Harry had found out about that week. Incorporating Thunderbirds, Star Wars, Octonauts and the Magic Faraway Tree into football was unbelievable, but you managed it!

Arthur's football skills earned him first prize in a competition to win the class rocket sculpture in Reception class. The fact it was the size of a coffin, and covered in glitter did not dampen our pride in any way, and we did not curse his football training at all. Harry's spatial awareness has been improved through his football training, so now he can choose when he bumps into Arthur for maximum effect.

Both boys benefited from structured activity, and teamwork skills, in a setting which was neither school, nor parent-led. 

So thank you for having the patience, creativity, and good-humour for enduring our two bizarre, challenging boys. And hope we will see you at events around Carlisle.

Susan and James - Carlisle
My son loved Little Kickers and can't wait for Saturday to come again so he can wear his kit and come back, mind you getting him to take his football kit off now is a nightmare!!!

Can I also say from my point of view that I found the class very well organised and the two coaches were fantastic with the kids. Coming from running my own dance school where we take kids from 2 yrs old I understand how difficult it can be to keep their attention and to also keep them calm. Charlie was made to feel very welcome and I thought it was great that both coaches ( I apologise as their names escape me) came over and spoke to Charlie, not me or my husband but got down and spoke to Charlie himself making him feel very at ease. This is the first big thing he is doing away from us so he was a little nervous about it, but I am over the moon that he liked it and wants to come back. My husband was also impressed with the class, as a qualified ref himself he also understands how difficult it can be. It was great to see them starting to learn some proper skills.

Thank you to you and your team as you are doing a great job.

Mum - Little Kickers Bicester and Banbury
Just wanted to let you know Edward had a fantastic time this morning-he has refused to take his kit off all day! We have been to many kids activities over the years and have to say I thought this was fantastic-very well run by you and your team, Edward will be desperate to get to Saturday!

Little Kickers parent - Guildford
Just wanted to say thank you for all your help and the information you gave me regards little kickers and the classes.

We received the kit on the day and Rishaan went to his first class last week Thursday and he loved it!!!! I was so happy for him and to see that excitement on his face truly was worth it!!!

Little Kickers North West London Mum
Both Coach Kyle & Coach Nick are great fun & very good. Ditto for a Coach Joe who stood in some weeks ago when Coach Nick was ill. I was particularly impressed by how Nick had clearly made the effort to get all the children's names right, was very safety-conscious during the general session & pre-session kick-around (must have eyes in the back of his head! - didn't miss a thing - quite something with a bunch of young boys!!), was hilarious as the giant in the Jack & the Beanstalk game, and was very inclusive towards my oldest son (who has Down syndrome). Nick took it upon himself to engage with Billy & thank him for helping his little brother. I was very impressed!

Keep up the good work - George loves this class!

Little Kickers Windsor & Ascot Mum
I would like to say that I think the coaches are absolutely great; they throw themselves into things every week and are so good with all the boys. Myles completely loves them and Little Kickers. He will literally ask every day if it’s a football day – thank goodness for Fridays!!

Little Kickers parent, Guildford
My son attends the Twickenham sessions on a Sunday with Graham Ware. I wanted to feedback to you what an excellent coach Graham is. All of the children enjoy his sessions. I have been really impressed how he engages the children and has the most amazing running commentary throughout the sessions. It's really tough keeping a group of 2 year olds engaged but he manages with great ease. He is a real credit to the Little Kickers. I wanted to write and provide positive feedback because frequently we are quick to complain and slow to compliment.

Caroline - Twickenham
Scott and Nathan are unbelievably enthusiastic and this rubs off on the kids. They are very inclusive of the kids and are good at spotting the ones who need that bit more encouragement. It has really helped our son and I have no doubt about our baby son joining when he is old enough.

Claire - Ulverston
LK is fantastic for providing fun, skill based exercise. The children develop a number of skills and improve their fitness without realising, they just enjoy the games. Keep up the fab work.

Libby
My daughter just loves Little Kickers! It's good fun, great exercise and teached her far more than football alone. She made one of her best friends through Little Kickers.

Sarah - Penrith
A big big thank you from Joshua to the coaches, Scott and Coby, for a fantastic introduction to football these past few years. Joshua has had a brilliant time. Also a big thank you for his certificate and goal presented yesterday - very thoughtful of you. Am sure we will be back when Oliver is bigger. Many thanks again.


Lucy and Matthew
We joined Little Kickers after moving up to the Lake District from London. Josh has learnt not only simple footballing techniques but also about coordination, balance, teamwork, better listening skills, sharing and taking turns. He loves hanging out with the other children and being part of the Little Kickers team and is really proud of his little kit. As for me, I've also made some friends, which is a real bonus when you move to a new area and don't know anyone - so good news for children and good news for Mummies!

Little Kickers is a fun & exciting way for my little boy to start learning good co-ordination skills, becoming a team player and staying active. The sessions are run in a fun & action packed way, pitched just at the right level for toddlers. Some really good football skills are taught involving cones that suddenly become swamps & bridges with the added excitement of having to dodge space invaders! The toddlers think it’s great fun & are totally in tune with the coaches & what they are expected to do. All are kitted out in football strips which makes them feel part of a really terrific little team. The sessions are obviously well planned & structured, ensuring each week a different skill is covered. A really great activity and one we all look forward to every week!

Emma - Plymouth
I would just like to share with you my thanks and admiration for little kickers and all the coaches. Ben really gets excited when we put on his 'Little kickers' kit, and head off to 'Hele School, Plympton' on Saturday mornings! Before we joined, Ben could kick the football, but now, he can do all sorts of things, from waking up his football and in and out of cones, to space invader games and penguin dribbling! he loves it! what surprises me most is that at just two yrs he can listen and take instruction, he's learnt his colours and can count beyond ten! Amazing! Coaches Kat, Karen and Sam have such energy and patients that keep the children engaged throughout the whole 45Min's. Fantastic! and lots of fun, thank you so much.

Sam Dobson (Mum to Ben Dobson)
Little Kickers at Plympton has definitely become the main event for our family on Saturday mornings! Our daughter Erin was rather shy at first, but owing to the patience and expertise of the coaching staff, along with a bit of persistence on our part, she has really come out of her shell and thoroughly enjoys the sessions. She loves learning new skills, and Little Kickers offers so much more than simply scoring goals! It’s great exercise and a wonderful activity to be involved with. We’d recommend it to any lively little girls or boys.

Erin’s Mum and Dad
Little Kickers is Harry’s favourite 45 mins of the week, he wouldn't miss it!! Watching him and his little kicker friends learning to play football is also the highlight of my day!

Dad, Wanstead
I just wanted to write to say thank you for the wonderful time Sam has had at Little Kickers over the last year and a half. Little Kickers has given our son a real love of football and the confidence to play and understand it with his friends in the playground. We were so sad to leave and Sam will miss his Sunday mornings there. I must make a special mention about the coaches. Coach Serge and Coach Simeone... what amazing guys! Their patience, care and interaction with the kids is unrivalled and has been extremely appreciated. They clearly love what they do and ensure each child feels included and understands how to join in. They have been so kind to Sam over his time there. Please thank them for me. We look forward to coming to Little Kickers with our other son, Jamie... in another year! (let's hope he's walking before then!!). Thanks again. It has really made a difference to Sam's confidence and understanding of how to play football.

Wendy, Mum to Sam Cohen, Golders Green.
Also, may I just say that Ben is loving Littlekicks and I really feel that he has learnt a few things over the last few weeks - he loves it and the other kids and parents are great too and of course Steve the Coach!

Rebby, Little Kickers Romford & Ilford
The highlight of my little boy's week is his Friday Little Kickers class. It's 45 minutes of football and much much more and he has a wonderful time. The coaches are superb and are unbelievably patient with a dozen excited 2 year old boys. I can't recommend it highly enough.

A Happy Customer, in Families Surrey West Magazine, Jan 08.
My son has played with Little Kickers for a couple of years and has enjoyed every minute. I thoroughly recommend it.

Mrs KP of the Mill Hill Class
Just to say thank you for the great summer course run at St Michaels. Ben had a brilliant time. He's joined a 'big boy' football team... he's now with Byron Red Star at Raphaels' Park. His Little Kickers training has paid off, he was put with Year One boys (a year older), and he was totally at home, able to understand what was asked of him, and the skills and concentration he learnt at LK meant that the coach was very complimentary to us after his first session. Many thanks to Steve and Bonghani... they were both brilliant with the boys. I was totally amazed that anyone could get so many little boys to sit still whilst holding footballs! They are seem to totally hero-worship them, and now Ben wants a 'footballer hat' like Steve's!

Sarah R
I would also like to pass on to Rob and the other coaches at St Sebastians my thanks for what an amazing job they do. I have been a teacher all my life and am full of admiration for their skills in managing such young children. The course programme is fantastic in the way that the activities are presented. The short, clear, manageable and varied activities are perfect and the way that Rob interacts with the children is just great. My grandson is having a wonderful time at his football classes thanks to the expertise of the coaches.

Families Thames Valley East July/August 2007. Parent2parent - favourite club or class; Ben enjoys Little Kickers football class on Sunday mornings. Daddy takes him along each week. James goes to watch now too as he will be able to start playing when he's two. Great exercise, good fun and they love scoring goals!

Sarah Turner of Windsor
Luke had a great time at his first session and I was very impressed with the coaching and format of the session. The coaches made him feel very welcome and involved straight away. He can't wait for the next one to start. Please thank the coaches for a great time.

Dan will be devastated to leave - he's adored Little Kickers.

Angie, mum of Dan, Watford
My son, Harry, attended his first Little Kickers class at Wimbledon last Friday. I just wanted to say how impressed I was with it. Harry absolutely loved it and the two coaches were fantastic and really involved the two "new boys" straight away. I can see Harry being a Little Kicker for a long time!

Jo C, Wimbledon
Little Kickers is by far and away the best pre-school activity class we have ever tried - so well organised - thanks very much!

Parent, Little Kickers Fulham
We love the consistency of coaching at Little Kickers, and the early learning content. We are teachers ourselves and Little Kickers gets it so right for this age-group. We think the coaches are amazing - very positive role models for the children

Parent, Little Kickers Putney
Both Rishul and Devin are having a great time at Little Kickers and the coaches are absolutely FAB.

Kamlesh
He really enjoyed it, and as we speak, is sleeping in his Little Kickers T-shirt, cause he refused to take it off! Thanks again.

Diana
Alex thoroughly enjoys Little Kickers - it's the only class he goes to which enables him to burn off so much of his excess energy!

Natasha G, Barnes
Little Kickers is absolutely fantastic! It's Benjamin's favourite activity of the week.

Parent, Little Kickers Reading
Alfie started a little shaky and not wanting to join in as he had never been involved in something like this before, but gradually your excellent trainers (who are just great with the kids) have managed to get him involved and trying everything. This is what we both wanted him to do as it teaches him much needed social skills and how to join in and play. Thank you!

Neil & Sam Weston, Essex
We are moving to Toronto, Canada during next month. Therefore we are very sad to say that we will not be renewing the membership for Jacob with the Junior Class of Little Kickers at Mill Hill. We have been delighted by the progress our son has made with all the coaches and will not hesitate to recommend Little Kickers to other parents in the future.

Steve Payne
Many thanks, Hal is LOVING Little Kickers.

Emma Glover
Unfortunately I have to give notice for lessons because we are moving back to the Netherlands. Leon will miss his classes dearly and, who knows, we may have contact in the future if there are no good toddler / under fives football options in Holland. Thanks for giving Leon the opportunity to practice his football skills and thanks for bringing a smile on my face every time the kids chase coach, it's the highlight of my week.

Marietta van der Putte
Scott absolutely loves Little Kickers. It is the highlight of his week! The coaches are excellent and it is very well run. Thanks!

Dr K Duke
Daniel is really enjoying the classes, as is his Dad - really good for them to do something together.

Christine, St Albans
They have thoroughly enjoyed coming and as a parent I have been more than pleased with what they have got up to. The whole concept is brilliant and I will certainly recommend the group to other parents.

Angela, Hemel Hempstead
Harry is enjoying his classes immensely.

Andy, St Albans
We think the Coach is excellent, very motivating for the children, he makes it great fun for them and they learn a lot. He is handling our son with great skill and good humour - well done Coach!!

Parent, Chiswick venue
Although Thomas finished Little Kickers last year I just wanted to write to say thanks for introducing him to football. It was great for him to have the opportunity of learning how to play with a ball as it's the only chance he's had to do this.

Whenever we're in your area he still refers to it being where "his" football is located and he still remembers "Coach Paul"

Sally, Little Kickers Guildford
