There’s a great new way to spend part of Saturdays – the Little Kicking Cubs
This is the brainchild of Scott Forbes and is already going down a treat with youngsters and parents alike.
The idea is so simple you are left wondering why it took so long maybe for the idea to evolve into a fun filled Saturday morning.
Scott has a passion for football and wanted to introduce the sport, slowly but surely, to pre-schoolers.
That, of course, means parents taking on a slightly more involved role than simply watching from the side lines.
Scott says he has always wanted to morph some of the adult attitudes towards football, and eradicate the side line parental screaming and shouting.
By making it a more positive and fun environment for budding sports' persons, he is coming close to achieving his goal.

During 'Kicking Cubs" Scott creates fun games incorporating the grass root pitch markings.
This familiarises the preschool budding footballers to the boundaries.
And during each session Scott also brings the parents onto the pitch, to participate in teaching the children to learn foot to ball skills.
It is a great way for the children to learn grassroots football, in a fun and positive family way.

The clubs are idea for pre-school fun football, fabulous for communication skills, and brings football early to the youngest of enthusiasts.
