Footie Families

Welcome to Footie Families

To learn to play football, young children need to develop a broad range of skills. Fundamental movement skills, such as balancing, jumping, throwing and kicking are the building blocks of movement and they are essential for children’s football development. 

Research shows that children who move well, achieve more academically so this programme will also help with school readiness. Parents are the most important influence on a child’s physical activity levels so by playing together and practicing skills through Footie Families, children will have the a great start to an active life.
