What is Kick Start?

  1. Just let the children play a lot of varied fun football related games
  • Session plans will be used (with modifications) from the National curriculum
  • If in doubt let them play a game, not more than 5 per side to ensure they have plenty of contact (touches) with the ball.


  1. Recreate a street football environment, so they can ‘discover’ how the game works in a natural way.
  • Do less “coaching” and be more a facilitator for a street football environment where they can just play and discover football for themselves.
  • Street/park football refers to the way we would have played: freely, trying things out, experimenting and without the judgement of adults.
