Little Blues Toddler Football

We provide a safe and secure ‘indoor’ environment, on a soft floor playing surface, where your child can experience the perfect introduction to sport and take their first steps into the wonderful world of football. Players can wear their own favourite football kit and trainers rather than paying a higher subscription fee that includes a branded kit. Each class is tailored with age specfic activities.
