Hi Melanie and all the team Just letting you know we are moving to the northern beaches next weekend. Jake (Reynolds) will finish this term with coach Dan but we'll have to look for an option in the northern beaches for next year. Boo! A big thank you to Kickaroos both my kids have loved your program! We'll miss the Kickaroos team on Saturday mornings! Thanks especially to coach Dan, Joe and Steve who have taught Amelie and Jakey. Your coaches are a credit to your company, their sense of fun, smiles and way of teaching the kids the love of sports is just brilliant! Thanks guys. Thanks Mel for always responding to questions, re enrolment etc so quickly. You have a fantastic brand, great customer service and most importantly happy kids! Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and healthy, happy 2015. Sarah and Karl Reynolds (Jakob's parents)

I just wanted to add my endorsement to this already glowing list. We attended a different preschool sports group and were sorely disappointed. They just weren't very engaging for the kids and I couldn't really see the value. I am sooo glad that we gave kickeroos a shot instead of giving up entirely. My kids absolutely LOVE it. My 4 year old son is usually a sole operator and is highly imaginative, preferring his own games and rules, but the way these classes are run leaves no room for him to get distracted. The games are highly imaginative and are totally irresistible to them. My 2 year old daughter thinks Coach Nick is hilarious and hasn't even noticed that she's surrounded by little boys, who usually terrify her. Kickeroos is so much more than just ball skills and soccer fundamentals, its given my kids confidence with adults and other kids, taught them how to listen and obey game rules, that sports can be games and not just mindless chasing, tackling and throwing and that "classes" are fun. Thanks Nick and Sara, you do a great job!

My son Albert has been participating in KICKEROOS for three terms now. He began in the 2 year old group. He absolutely loves it and looks forward to the sessions and seeing his friends every week. "Coach Nick", "Coach Laurence" and "Coach Tim" are brilliant with the kids, incorporating many fun games that not only teach soccer skills but also listening, sharing and best of all - lots of fun! Thanks Nick and Sara for such a wonderful experience. You never know, one of our boys may be a future Socceroos star!

My son Cass is obsessed with Kickeroos. He's only been there for one term, but already at the start of each day, he says: "Is it Kickeroos day today, Mummy?" So, 6 out of 7 days he's disappointed... He has definitely improved his foot eye coordination with the help of Coach Nick - and now plays 'great' soccer (in his mother's eyes at least!) at home whenever he gets the chance. Coach Nick's extremely entertaining and creative lessons are a great hit - think French Lieutenants mixed with Buzz Lightyear - and if Cass remembers to kick the ball rather than pick it up and run with it, he may be in line to play for Man United one day. Who knows!? Thanks, Kickaroos. keep up the gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaal!

Our two boys aged 6 and 8 cant wait to get to Kickeroos each week! That’s because Coach Nick’s hour long sessions offer quality skill training and provides a variety of fitness drills to keep the kids engaged. The drills and games teach the kids discipline and team work and the exercises are fun and friendly especially the team match which the kids all love …. the Kickeroos holiday programmes have great coaches and are well organized – the kids have a fantastic time!

Jett has been doing kickeroos soccer with Nick for the past 2 years. Nick has only shown dedication, professionalism and advanced people skills with the children. He has taught Jett amazing skills and techniques to further his soccer playing as well as making every training session fun and full of challenges. Jett always enjoys and benefits from each session and camp and is really disappointed when he can't have training.
