Benefits of Little Legends

Football is one of the world’s most popular sports, played and enjoyed by people in over 200 countries. It is a fully inclusive sport for both male and females irrespective of culture, religion, or ability.

HF Development Little Legends is the mini version of the world game. A program designed specifically for children that focuses on fun whilst learning the fundamentals of football. It fosters a love of the game that can carry them through adulthood. 

Each week football skills are taught in a friendly and inclusive environment where the child learns the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship and participation.

With different weekly themes that engage and excite the children they build their self-esteem and confidence, as well as refine gross motor skills. The program also ensures that children develop social interaction abilities and learn that they can stay healthy through physical activity. 

New skills taught each week that challenge both body and mind and give them a solid foundation to football guarantee that at the conclusion of a term, children finish feeling proud of themselves and their achievements.

Qualified coaches that engage and encourage the child, coupled with small class sizes ensure maximum time on the ball which results in skills being learnt and mastered more quickly.

At the conclusion of each term a progress report is issued to parents to advise of how their child is working and developing.
