About Us

Our Program

At Kickeroos, we believe that children learn best when they are having fun, and we use this philosophy throughout our entire program. We encourage and develop all skill levels in a fun, active, challenging and technical (FACT) sporting environment.

 

Your child will enjoy exciting breakthrough programs that encompass fun, physical activity and team building skills in a social and nurturing environment. 

 

We offer a range of programs and activities for boys and girls from 18 months - 9 years. 

What our Community say...

"My daughter has been doing gymnastics for over a year and loves it so much she has asked to come twice a week. It is a fun and engaging environment" – Lisa Biffin

"My two boys have each been attending (and loving) Kickeroos since they were toddlers.  They have now both progressed on to the development squad which is further developing their knowledge of, and love for, the game whilst continuing to instil in them team work and good sportsmanship. The fact the owner is a teacher is evident throughout the program - the kids are learning great life skills (sharing, waiting their turn, listening and good sportsmanship to name just a few) while having fun and making new friends. 

I can’t recommend Kickeroos highly enough!"  - Corrina Gadd

"Fantastic programme for toddlers and young kids - very thoughtful and age appropriate activities with engaging and dedicated coaches who build great rapport with the kids. My son runs to the class each week so excited to be there” – Victoria Wark, Edward’s Mum.  has

"Steve from SheKicks has trained the G12 Queens Park Clovelly Cats this year. Every training has been unique, well planned and fun for the girls. Their skill levels have improved over the season, culminating in our last game being the best I have seen them play, beating the top team on the ladder. We appreciate the professionalism and ongoing effects of SheKicks throughout the season, and Coach Steve in particular". Anthony - Team Manager, G12 QP Clovelly Cats.

"I just wanted to put in a good word for Coach Rio, who is the coach of my son's group (4 y/o), Saturday mornings at 10am. Rio has been doing a fantastic job. She is very engaging with the boys, vigilant about their good/bad behaviour, encouraging of all, and she selects very good soccer drills and "games", at the right level of skill and with 'entertainment value". Well done". Anonymous Parent
