Football

Children play football because it is fun, challenging and exciting. Most kids love being part of a team.

Football teaches cooperation and team work, helps develop positive social skills and teaches respect for others. It helps build self-confidence, a positive self-image and self-worth. It enables a child to improve upon and develop a broad range of motor skills like throwing, catching, running, kicking, balance, agility and coordination.

Because a large variety of skills and physical abilities are required on a football team, there is a position for every child to play.
