Last week was a landmark week for Little Kickers who picked up its first award from the wider football fraternity, a Football Business award for Best Business Serving Football. Until that moment, Little Kicker’s accolades had come primarily from the franchise & wider business communities, including telling nods to children’s education and growing sustainability credentials.
According to Little Kickers founder, Christine Kelly, “As anyone who knows anything about Little Kickers will appreciate, we’re not a pre-school talent academy in disguise but a pioneering fun-based/shared learning football programmes for pre-school children that’s been treading the boards since 2002 and enjoys a reach that now extends to 33 different countries activating some 70,000+ children a week.
Our simple, single-minded mission goal from Day 1 has been to create a range of involving and evolving activity-based initiatives for inquisitive pre-schoolers to stimulate young minds and foster a long-lasting appreciation of sports-based activities. That said, football is the medium by which we communicate our vision, so to be recognised by Football Business is quite simply beyond the dreams of a blossoming business that first opened its doors back in Clapham some 19 years ago.”
