WHO: An introductory program learning the FUNdamentals for players turning 4-6 years, using best practice, by following the NZFootball Whole of Football Plan for First Kicks. 

Our young players must be turning 4yrs before June 2024 to join First Kicks.  We do offer a Mini Dribblers Programme for 2yrs-4yrs each term.  Please have a look at the information on this programme.

NOTE: Our recommendation is that players turning 6, and who have completed a year in First Kicks could move on to Fun Football. New Players to football should complete a season in First Kicks. 

Consideration should be given to technical/tactical, social/emotional, mental, and physical capabilities as the player will be playing with and against 8 year olds in Fun Football.
