We are delighted to announce our partnership with Panini and the launch of our S4K Kids Football World Cup Tournament! The tournament will be held of Sunday 6th July 2014
at the Salesian School
and is open to all of our S4K Strikers (
5 to 7 years) and S4K Academy
(7+ years). We will be mixing our teams up and they will be allocated a country to represent for the tournament. Will Brazil or the Netherlands win the trophy? Could we see a victory on penalties for England? Or could a wildcard like the Ivory Coast or Costa Rica reign supreme! It promises to be a fun afternoon of football for all of the family to enjoy.
Our friends at Panini have donated sticker albums
to us for our S4K kids (and parents!) so that they can join in the World Cup fever and enjoy their first major tournament. Over the coming weeks, we encourage our children (and parents again) to bring their swaps along to our classes and get involved in what promises to be a fantastic summer of football. We will also have a Swap Shop
on the date of the tournament so that our little ones (and big ones) can try to finish their books! If you would like a sticker book and have not received one already, just ask one of our coaching team this weekend. Places are extremely limited (due to high demand), so please head to www.yoozap.com/sport4kids to book your child's place (£10 for one child; £15 for two; £20 for three).
S4K Kids Football Club Summer Festival Announcement!
Our Summer of Football Tournaments has Arrived!
We are delighted to announce that we are able to offer our S4K Football Club
teams the chance to enter into three competitive tournaments this Summer in preparation for next year's league participation! We have been working extremely hard over the past few months to set up a football club that not only offers children the chance to take part in regular football match fixtures, but also continues to place the emphasis on skill development and fun.
The tournaments are listed below and all have placed for Under 7s (6+ years), Under 8s and Under 9s teams. ANY of our S4K children who fall into this age category are welcome to enter. The cost of entry varies between £5 and £10 per player and we will provide further details once we have received responses for registering. To book your daughter or son's place, please email , stating which tournaments you would like to attend by Thursday 12th June 2014.
In order to make these tournaments successful, we will be needing parents to take on "Team Coach" roles and be active in working with the children on the day. If you are able to assist with this, please also include this in your email :-)
We will also be offering FREE S4K Player Pathway Assessments for August! This is a 15 minute assessment of your child's football skills across our Player Pathway criteria. This will not only help our children and parents understand whether they are ready for the next S4K level, but also point out the skills that they can work on to improve their ability.
We are extremely excited about this new chapter in our S4K history and look forward to welcoming you all along the journey!

We were delighted to be asked to attend the Surrey Heath Show in Frimley Lodge this past weekend, where we had lots of fun entertaining the kids with football fun! Our stall, led by Coach Charlotte and Coach Laura, spent time working with the little ones, teaching them how to score goals and celebrate in style. Our older kids took part in our football challenges, including hopping with the ball and flicking over cones into the goal. The arena demonstration was fantastic, with girls and boys of all ages stepping up to the plate and demonstrating their football skills in a fun relay race. All in all, a big thanks to John Cleary and Tony Moore for inviting us to perform at the event - we will definitely be back next year to promote our kids football classes in Farnborough and Camberley! (See below for a comment from a parent who passed by)
There were lots of great stalls and all of them were really friendly. Particular stand out highlights were the Sports4Kids girls who really made an effort entertaining our 2 for a few minutes and the community support officers who were happy to chat and put police hats on us for pictures.
