Welcome to First Kicks, where fun and fostering a love for the game are our top priorities! Designed for our youngest players, aged between 4 and 6 years old, First Kicks aims to introduce kids to the excitement of soccer while focusing on maximum participation.

Our sessions are filled with a variety of football-based activities tailored to enhance general movement, develop football technique, improve coordination, and engage in playful games. We want every child to feel comfortable with the ball and enjoy as much time with it as possible.

Who can join? For the 2024 season, children aged 4, 5, and 6 are eligible to join First Kicks.

When and where do we play? Our sessions take place every Saturday morning from 8:30 am to 9:30 am at Alex Moore Park in Johnsonville.

What do you need? Players will receive a North Wellington FC playing shirt for the season, which should be returned at the end of the season. Club shorts and socks can be conveniently purchased online via Inter Football

Coaches and Teams 

At First Kicks, every player is placed into a team, complete with its own unique name and an enthusiastic parent coach. We believe that sports are most enjoyable when played with friends, so we do our best to group children with their buddies whenever possible. But don't worry if your child is new to the group; many kids come in without knowing anyone and quickly make friends while having a blast playing fun games together..

Code of Conduct 

To ensure a positive and respectful environment for everyone involved, we uphold the North Wellington Football Club's code of conduct. You can find the full details of our code of conduct Here

Getting Involved 

If you're keen to rediscover the joy of football through your children's eyes, why not consider becoming a coach? We provide support materials and courses to help you get started. Coaching takes less time than you might imagine, and the satisfaction of witnessing your team's joy and success is truly rewarding. If you're contemplating coaching but would like to chat with someone first, please don't hesitate to Rachel Woodhall programmes@northweellingtonfootball.com
