KickSTARts & Stepping Up
Pre-School to Year 2’s

The premise of the programme is to run football sessions with the end aim of offering, those who want it, a pathway into structured club football within Colchester Villa. Whilst working on the basics of football it will also strengthen physical and technical literacy from an early age.

The sessions incorporate skills such as dribbling, passing, shooting, ball mastery/manipulation as well as non-technical aspects such as communication, teamwork, problem-solving and an abundance of social skills.
