The McDonalds Junior Football fun games/activities play a major part in each session. Please use them and support the development and enjoyment of our future footballers.

Our goal is to enthuse young players so that they fall in love with the sport and stay in it for life. These activities offer volunteer coaches with a variety of fun games, each focusing on a particular technical outcome. Every activity is an opportunity for young children to take part in fun, enjoyable football games that will develop them as players and people.

It is important to check that SMILES are evident in your sessions:

  • S - Safe
  • M - Maximum participation
  • I - Inclusive
  • L - Learning
  • E - Enjoyable
  • S - Successful

Thank you for supporting the growth and development of football.
