At Munchkin Sports, we take pride in introducing 2 to 7 year-old children in Beckenham to our nation’s most popular sport, football. We teach them basic football skills to develop their interest and encourage them to be part of their school team. Although we aim to develop their football skills, our main goal is to enhance their social interaction skills to build their self-confidence.
All our football munchkin classes in Beckenham involve fun themed games that are suitable for both boys and girls. The classes are headed by a friendly lead coach to ensure each munchkin gets the most from each session. To avoid our younger munchkins from feeling intimidated, our classes are split into two age groups:
2 to 4-Year-Olds
In this 45-minute class, a lead coach introduces the youngest munchkins to basic football skills such as balance, agility and kicking the ball without picking it up. We emphasise social skills and teamwork in our team games and use coloured footballs. Besides team games, our lead coach facilitates interactive pod games such as dribbling, passing, receiving and scoring a goal. For every munchkin to feel comfortable and enthusiastic, we encourage their parents to cheer for them from the touchline.
4 to 7-Year-Olds
Our lead coaches aim to further develop football skills in this 60-minute class. Our munchkins are ready to take a big step by participating in full-on football matches. All our football games are played for fun and emphasise teamwork when it comes to strategising how to score a goal. Our football matches have plenty of opportunities for all munchkins to identify their role in the team as well as refine their social and communication skills. During the games, parents are very welcome to cheer for their kids to play well and score a goal.
