The joy of sport is that it provides an unrivalled sense of fun, dreams and togetherness that is rarely matched for girls and boys. At S4K we inspire kids and parents together to enjoy a simple, yet structured introduction to a number of sports including football, rugby and basketball, that is fun and challenging whilst developing all those skills that dreams are made of. Guided by a study of the works of child psychologists, nursery school and child health specialists the techniques and principles used in the design of the classes for our children are all focused on creating a warm, friendly and inclusive learning environment across all age groups.
We provide a number of classes including football classes for kids and other sporting options designed around different children's age groups, not only focusing on the development of their sporting abilities, but also on their general life and group behaviour skills. The S4K experience improves childrens' confidence, communication skills and sense of enjoyment.

Each class comes complete with two coaches to ensure that every child receives some all-important one-on-one tuition, which is essential to help them along and feel part of the gang. We find with our attention to every little person, even the shyest child soon feels comfortable and happy with their new sets of friends.
On a wider health conscious note, with sports fields and safe environments in steep decline there are an increasing lack of opportunities for children to truly immerse themselves in sport.
We all read about the growing obesity issues and a recognised need to educate our young into healthy and active lifestyles, to start them early and instil naturally happy and healthy association to sports and active lifestyles. At S4K we are very aware of this and recognise this is both a symptom and a challenge of 21st century life, with all parents having hectic schedules and busy lives. It is not easy being a parent and balancing everything. That is why S4K is for parents as well as the kids. So if there is anything we can do to help – we will do. Let us know of your ideas to help parents and build a community support around how we help our young enjoy and experience healthy lifestyles. Suggest group days out and other sessions such as easier birthday parties, coffee mornings and play dates and we will oblige.
There is a growing outcry for affordable, professionally run sports programmes like ours to give impressionable young minds that all-important first taste of sport, a fast-paced first introduction that official stats prove time and again to be pivotal in children adopting a more physically active outlook for life.
Emphasis on Fun (& Dreams) so as to inspire and build children's confidence and sense of well being. Our goal is to build excitement and the passion for running about and playing with the ball. It is fun not push, a positive experience where all children are encouraged, complimented and taught how to succeed. In every session every child gets to score a goal. It is all designed around the objective of a fun-filled pre-school football programme executed in a friendly, pressure-free environment. At the end of each session the kids get a little reward for being so good!
