Little Kickers now in Springfield

ISABELLA and Noah King are on their way to becoming future soccer stars, after signing up for a new toddler program based in Springfield.

Mum Gemma has enrolled the brother and sister in the Little Kickers program, which has just started in the area.

Here they hope to learn a wide range of sports skills, including kicking a ball, balance and co-ordination.

But the program is also helpful with teaching them about sharing, teamwork, and listening and obeying instructions from an adult.

Springfield Little Kickers owner Philip Wright said he was excited to bring this popular Australian program to Ipswich.

"Little Kickers is a program which I am really passionate about," Mr Wright said.

"I was working as a coach at Brisbane south for two-and-a-half years before deciding to bring the program to Springfield.

"I am a big soccer fan, and I love teaching the kids how to play the game."

There are different groups available for children of varying ages.

There are Little Kicks (18-27 months), Junior Kickers (2-3.5 years), Mighty Kickers (3.5-5 years) and Mega Kickers (5-7 years).

Mr Wright's classes are held each Wednesday morning at the Springfield YMCA on Springfield Lakes Blvd and at Sacred Heart School in Booval on Saturday mornings.

If you would like to know more about the program, phone Mr Wright on 0426 240 884 or email pwright@littlekickers.com.au.
