About Little Lions

We are

Little Lions Coaching Clinic is a 6 year journey. We offer a journey that starts at 3 years old (Academic Pre-School) and concludes at 9 years old (Year 4).

We offer a professional, private coaching service in three separate coaching programmes to suit our age groups and ensure every child is challenged on their ability and given opportunity to express themselves.

When choosing your child’s nursery/school you ensure your child is going to the best establishment available to them. Choosing your child’s football coaching should be the same procedure because its vital they get the best start by exposure to quality coaching and coaching curriculum.

Our programmes aim to develop our players physically, technically, mentally and tactically. We aim to create a safe, fun and motivating environment to help your child strive and learn to love our nation’s favourite game.

Our three hubs share the same values, structure and coaching curriculum. Little Lions will focus on your child as an individual and develop their strengths and weaknesses. We’ll give them a base to take risks, be creative and feel confident with and without the ball. Every player and parent will be made to feel part of the Little Lions family from the moment they walk through the door.

We are passionate to ensure all our members get the best coaching available to them, and due to the ages we start at it’s important we give them the perfect base to build from to start their football journey.

We offer FREE tasters to all new customers

We have a Talent ID route for players we deem to have a special talent. These children will be offered a path onto our development squads programme which is an invitation only. We promote female participation and all classes are mixed.
