Little Kickers run fun-filled sessions for everyone! We are commonly asked whether we are able to include children with what are perceived to be disabilities. We want to include absolutely everybody, our classes are designed so that no child feels isolated and everyone can progress at their own rate with a helping hand being offered every step of the way by our amazing coaches.
We've had some fantastic feedback from parents who feel that their children's social skills have improved at an amazing rate. We've always emphasised the idea that we are #MoreThanJustFootball, but we are so pleased it's recognised by you as well!
We'd like you to meet Claire. Claires son, Jadon, has been enjoying our classes like every other Little Kicker. Jadon, however, has a condition known as Fibular Hemimelia.
We'll let Claire tell you a little more...
Jadon has been going to Little Kickers for some time now, he absolutely loves it!
Jadon was born with Fibular Hemimelia a condition that causes a partial or total lack of fibular bone. He wears a prosthetic leg but please don't let that that will stop him from doing what he loves!
I have to admit, when Jadon was around 11 months old, he sadly had to have his amputation. I am so pleased to say, however, that he bounced back with such resilience and at an incredible rate. He soon became the active two year old we know today.
He lets nothing stand in his way and you will never hear him moan about a thing! He is my little brave monkey, a nickname we gave to him due to his cheeky nature!
We love coming to Little Kickers, thank you for the wonderful classes. They have given him so much confidence, he simply loves it. Coach Adam is great with him and all the kids. I find it helps his balance and co-ordination not to mention his listening skills.
We LOVE hearing that Jadon is continuing to enjoy his classes.
