Football at Happy Kids
You will have fun and learn new skills by playing football with coach Peter at Happy Kids. The main focus is making sure all children have a smile on their face.
Children improve their coordination, use both of their feet and practice social skills. They will have an opportunity to demonstrate the exercises and skills they have learned during practice because they all have their own football. Throughout the year children will learn to control the ball and understand what it is to play in a team.
Come and join the Football Club every Tuesday from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. As long as it is not rainy, we will go outside. Please bring appropriate clothing and a water bottle, equipment for the session will be provided. We hope to see you on the pitch.
Benefits of Playing Football
Making friends – joining a youth football team will give a child the chance to forge friendships with their team mates that can last a lifetime.
Build self confidence – a great way for children to gain confidence is through doing something they love with their friends. When a child is part of a football team they can develop a strong friendship group and a real sense of belonging. Children can gain confidence as their ability develops and the team experiences success on the pitch.
Improve communication – to be successful on the pitch a team must work well together, which means communicating with each other when playing and passing the ball.
Building parent/child bonds – football is an opportunity to share something that you both love.
Improve social skills – when playing as part of a team, children can learn how to communicate with each other and with adults such as coaches and referees.
Increased energy – playing sport regularly will generally give a child more energy, which in turn can lead to greater stamina and physical ability, and improved mental agility.
Greater focus – playing regularly for a youth football team is a positive addition to a child’s routine, giving them something healthy and enjoyable to focus on.
