OXFORD UNITED IN THE COMMUNITY LAUNCH SOCCER TOTS COURSE TO ENCOURAGE ACTIVE LIFESTYLES AT AN EARLY AGE

Oxford United in the Community is launching a brand-new Saturday morning club for children aged 18 months to five-years-old.

Soccer Tots is being delivered by qualified coaches from the club’s charity to encourage enthusiasm for sport at an early age. The three-month course starts on Saturday at the Oxford Academy, Sandy Lane West, Oxford and will run weekly until December 15th.

It is a fun, child-centred introduction to structured activity for toddlers and young children. The sessions will help children develop and improve their basic movement patterns, balance and motor coordination. The course also includes activities to support literacy and numeracy in a fun environment.

Kate Longworth, CEO at Oxford United in the Community, said: “Our Soccer Tots courses are centred around helping your children to develop first and foremost as people, and then as sports enthusiasts.

“This is a bespoke programme that has been proven to deliver positive impact results across the UK and we are delighted to be introducing it here in Oxfordshire. Supporting families to instil active and healthy lifestyles in youngsters from an early age in a nurturing environment is a key part of our strategy and commitment to our community.”

Oxford United in the Community is the football club’s official charity and helps inspire youngsters to reach their potential and improve their health and wellbeing via the power of football, engagement and education.

The charity’s coaching staff deliver programmes in nursery and primary schools across Oxfordshire. They are qualified not only in football coaching, but in teaching interventions including Real PE, which focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning.

Soccer Totsis £60 per child for the 12-week programme and the sessions take place between 9am and 9.45am. To enrol please visit: https://officialsoccerschools.co.uk/oxfordunited/soccer-tots.html
