We’re thrilled to announce that this term is starting off with a bang as we introduce two fantastic additions to the Soccer Totties family.

Led by our dedicated coach Adrian, Totties Training will provide specialised coaching tailored specifically for 5–8-year-olds, helping them develop fundamental skills and a love for the game in a supportive and engaging environment. These sessions will take place every Thursday at 4.15pm The Athletic Buddha in Concord West, ensuring your child receives the focused attention they deserve to thrive on the field.

Recognising the crucial development stage for young athletes, we’re dedicated to providing focused training that goes beyond simply showing up for games. Led by our experienced Coaches, this session aims to fill the gap often found in club soccer, where young players may lack the individual attention and skill-building opportunities they need to thrive. At Soccer Totties, we understand the importance of proper training at a young age, and we are committed to nurturing each child’s passion for the game while helping them develop essential skills in a supportive and engaging environment.

But that’s not all – we’re also expanding our reach with a brand-new location at Steyne Park in Double Bay every Monday at 3:45 PM! Nestled in the heart of this picturesque setting, our sessions at Steyne Park will offer your little ones the perfect backdrop for honing their soccer skills while enjoying the great outdoors.

Our expert coaches will lead engaging sessions filled with fun drills, games, and skill-building exercises tailored specifically for children aged 5-8. It’s the perfect opportunity for your kids to develop their soccer skills while making new friends and enjoying the outdoors. Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to join us at Steyne Park and watch your tots score big on the field!
