SupaStrikers is a soccer-based activity session for children aged 2-4 years, which takes the form of weekly INDOOR sessions. As well as learning core football and movement skills, children also develop their awareness of shapes, colours, simple numbers and social skills.
Depending upon their age and physical capability, children belong to either MiniStrikers or MegaStrikers (pre-school year). We are affiliated to Gloucestershire PATA (Playgroup and Toddler Association). Our coaching teams are CRB-checked and have genuine experience of working with this age group, as well as football coaching skills. We usually work with a maximum group size of 10-12 children of a similar age (depending upon the venue), although Saturday and Sunday morning sessions may contain higher numbers. However, to ensure individual attention for each child, our maximum ratio is 6 children per coach.
We believe children learn best through having fun, therefore our sessions are lively and interactive. Stability within the group is also important, therefore, we operate on a membership basis to ensure that the children see familiar faces each time. Parents/Carers are encouraged to join in, especially with the younger MiniStrikers.
The programme and equipment are specifically designed for this age group, and there is no ‘heavy’ coaching. However, members will learn lots of skills that will really benefit their future physical and sporting development. Progression to the main Andy Tucker Soccer Camps will be a natural next step for many members.
