Welcome to Little Footy Tackers

If your son or daughter loves Australian Rules Football, and wants to learn the foundations of our great game in a fun, friendly and dynamic environment, then Little Footy Tackers Pre and Primary School Development Programs are hard to beat!

Little Footy Tackers is a fun and exciting way to teach Your Little Tacker the basics of AFL Footy and is for children aged 3 to 5 and 6 to 9 years!

Of course, it’s not just about the footy – it’s about giving your child the opportunity toimprove their physical development by learning how to run, jump and kick whilst facilitating their social development as they meet new playmates and form new friendships.

All of our classes are 45 minutes in duration and run in line with Victorian school terms.

Sessions are held in the mornings and in the after school hour period during weekdays and on weekends.

All sessions are held at indoor venues so no matter if it’s rain, hail or shine, the class still runs.

All of our coaches hold their Working With Children licences and have either completed (or are in the process of completing) some form of formal coaching/sports education.
