What is Tiny Tots ? Saturday Mornings in Terms 1, 2, 3 and 4

Our Tiny Tots program has been created to develop the skills of 3 to 6-year-olds, who are not yet old enough to be registered to play. Tiny Tots promotes football-based exercise and activity through a range of different drills, practices and games. With a focus on developing running, stopping, ball control, jumping, turning, balance, agility, movement and general co-ordination.

The program offers the opportunity for young children to receive quality, consistent coaching, introducing the basics of football. We encourage kids to be physically active, have fun, of course, all while developing a love for our game!

New Farm United Tiny Tots Program is run under the supervision of professionally qualified Coaches.

What Do We Teach?

Motor Skills Development
With or without a ball, the children will be challenged through gross-motor skill movement.
This element is important not just for football, but for life in general. The one-legged stand has never been so much fun, with and without the ball.
The very essence of movement should be an integral part of each session. Basic skills such as running, jumping, turning and twisting are to be introduced. Hand-Eye and Foot-Eye Coordination are developed which are integral for all sports.
Introduction to Stretching, Exercise and Health Benefits
Full body stretches are not advocated, but rather there is an introduction to such activities to educate the children on the benefits of healthy lifestyle choices.

Basic Football Skills
The skills are introduced in a fun and relaxed manner. By introducing the information in a gradual and exciting way, the children are learning the basic fundamentals under the guise of having fun.
We seek to instil an understanding of good sportsmanship and respectful conduct on and off the pitch. The program aims to develop good athletes who accept winning and losing in the same spirit and manner. Throughout all training and games, there is a focus on showing a “respect for all players and officials”.
Fun through Gameplay
After several weeks of sessions and practice the concept of a game becomes instinctive in the participant’s football development. Simple throw-ins and goal-kicks skills are taught, but they are encouraged to have fun and permitted to learn through play. Participation and having fun is the key element we are seeking to promote.
