Tots FC is a unique football specific play programme for boys and girls aged 18 months to 5 Years.

Children will have a ball each for the majority of the session and develop essential skills such as balance, co-ordination, social skills and much more in a fun environment. Our coaches will visit your setting to deliver the sessions and provide all equipment and planning which can be used for reporting and evidence.

Little Sports Coaching provides an enabling environment in which children’s learning is supported and extended by underpinning their Early Learning Journey.  This is achieved through delivery of unique thematic sessions which support the Early Years and Foundation stage curriculum.
