Welcome to Footie Families, the programme designed for parents and their young children to play together and engage in fun activities, to help develop fundamental movement skills.
Before playing football, or any sport, our little ones 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 participation in physical activity throughout life.
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.
