Soccer Programs and Timetable

Philosophy

Our philosophy at Kickstart is that children are better placed to join indoor or outdoor competitive sports after 12 years of age. This is in line with current research from the Australian Sports commission guidelines on Children in Sport.

Having extensive experience from grass roots through to the highest level of International competition, we concur that the best environment is one where skills, self esteem and physical fitness are nurtured and progressed in an environment free of comparison and pressure.

Moving Forward

We are excited to see our participants improve and move forward with their skills and our aim is to prepare children for the rigours of competition and send them forward with the necessary physical, and mental skills needed to excel.
We are dedicated to progressing our participants at the right time in their development and as such are extending our clinics to include a specialist advanced group
Suitable for those whose child has a passion for the game and wishes to take it further as a future soccer player or those who would just like to see their child progress to the next level as well equipped as they can be to succeed.
