First kicks & Fun football

The Mini First Kicks, First Kicks and Fun Football Programmes are run by Coastal Spirit as part of NZ Football’s Whole of Football Framework. It is designed to assist school-age players to develop the basic soccer skills through direct coaching, fun, practice and games.

Players enjoy 4 fun-packed training drills called Station Rotation then the squad of ten players is split up to play short games of 4 or 5 aside, on small fields with no goalkeepers and modified rules.

Players need to bring their own shorts, socks and shin pads. The club provides players with a playing shirt.

Early engagement into the game should be encouraged as it is necessary to reach excellence. This initiation phase is to allow the children to discover the game, provide for learning basic fundamental movement skills and create positive football experiences.
