FUN FUN and MORE FUN is the best way to describe the Kindy Soccer Program which started in 2006 and has since become the largest club run program in Brisbane with more than 750 players graduating since it started. Our Mission is to introduce 3 to 5 year olds to sport and fitness through a proven, fun-filled and exciting program, run by qualified, passionate coaches who enjoy developing young children. To help you understand the program we have provided considerable information including a video outlining the program, testaments from fellow parents and photographs of the program.

As a not for profit club, we are run by parents such as you and we understand that choosing a kindy soccer program is an important decision for parents as you are seeking a positive experiences that encourage your child to participate in sport and fitness for life. That is why we take this responsibility seriously and treat each child as an individual. You will be amazed at how quickly, young children embrace the program and overcome the shyness, parental attachment and lack of concentration.
All kindy soccer sessions are held on a Saturday morning at the South Pine Sports Complex at Brendale between 8:30am and 10:30am - each session runs for 55 minutes.
We understand this is a decision that many parents want to research to ensure they choose the best possible program for their children which is why we provide considerable information under each separate section below.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Squirts Kindy Soccer Program was created by a group of qualified coaches who played professionally in Australia and Europe with the aim of introducing children aged 3,4 and 5 to sport, fitness and soccer through a series of FUN drills, exercises and games that develop their motoring skills whilst introducing them to the basic dribbling and passing skills. The program is an introduction to all forms of sport as it develops basic skills that apply to sport and day to day activities. The program runs on a Saturday morning at the Club’s Brendale South Pine Sports Complex for twenty two weeks with breaks for the Easter and July school holidays.
Development of minds and bodies of young people requires a program that ensures full involvement, ease of understanding and a staged approach which builds on initiatives and activities in a logical structured manner. The ACE Kindy Program was developed taking all of these factors into consideration. Our program provides multiple levels which add complexity based on age and experience, allowing children to progress through the levels over the years. A child that first enrolls into the program at age 3 will experience all levels of the program over the two years preparing them for soccer in Under 6 or for any other sport that they may choose in the future.

There are many reasons why our kindy squirts program is special. Firstly the kids love our friendly coaches and they want to come back each week. Secondly, our program is fun. Thirdly, our administration and support people care about the kids and their families and make every effort to accommodate their needs. Fourthly, our program recognizes that kids develop differently which is reflected in the three levels of classes that are available in the program and finally our is part of the Football Queensland Squirts program which ensures that the program is professional and that all kids involved are covered by insurance.
The success of the program has been achieved by ensuring that our program offers more than other similar programs in Brisbane. This is true in the following key areas:
INSURANCE: All players are registered with Football Queensland and Covered by Insurance

WE CARE ABOUT THE KIDS: From the administration coordinator to the coaches we really care about the welfare of the children and ensuring that their first experience with sport and fitness is as positive as possible. This is reflected in everything we do.
