Football programmes

The Scottish FA along with Fife Council and other important partners work closely to help deliver over 100 weekly participation sessions throughout Fife. These sessions are delivered to kids from 18 months to 12 years old. All sessions are open to boys and girls of all abilities. We also offer a number of walking football sessions for people of all ages.

Tot Kicks

(18 months – 3 years)

This exciting class uses a variety of fun inspired, interactive football games designed to help develop your childs basic moves and co-ordination. We insist that parents & carers be involved too!

Mini Kickers

(3 – 5 years)

The mini kickers programme provides boys and girls the opportunity to enjoy playing football and improve their football skills. Within a safe environment, kids can interact with one another and also get involved with small sided games.

Football Centres

(P1 – 7)

Our skills centres for primary age children continue to be fun and interactive, led by our fully qualified SFA coaches. FUN is at the forefront of all of our sessions, however our coaches will strive to challenge kids with new skills and new games. Team work and creativity is promoted at all times!

Walking Football

(All ages)

Walking football has become increasingly popular. It’s exactly what it sounds like – a standard game of football where players walk instead of run. It's designed to help people get fit or maintain an active lifestyle no matter what their age and fitness, as well as support people getting back into football if they have given it up due to age or injury.

Fife Football Performance Academy

Fife Council provide a unique pathway for talented boys and girls in Fife. The academy programme is designed to put the child first.  Every session is delivered by qualified Fife Council/Scottish FA coaches. The regular sessions will provide the tools needed so every child can reach their full potential.
