Footie Tots and Footie Wizards Football classes for kids aged between 2 1/2 and 8 years old that will introduce them to a world of fitness and football rolled in with a good helping of fun. Andy Scates who teaches the children is highly engaging, holding their attention and full of encouragement every step of the way. All classes are held indoors but in the summer they hold a fantastic summer “camp” with football training outdoors for a period of 3 weeks whereby you can opt for mornings or full days. I can give a personal recommendation for this excellent facility. Classes run at venues in Teddington and are on different days depending on the age and level of training required.
