Lil Kickers Academy

About us


Lil Kickers Academy was founded by myself, John Allitt, in June 2015. I’m an FA Qualified Coach and Personal Trainer. 

The Academy was created with important values close to my heart, I wanted to promote fitness through football and I’m passionate about encouraging children to develop and achieve their dreams.

Since the first session, Lil Kickers Academy has expanded to provide several different football-specific sessions. 1-2-1 sessions, 1-2-2 sessions, small group sessions, advanced club training, birthday parties, nursery and school visits.


I wanted to create sessions which gave very young children at the age of 2 the chance to get active and learn through having fun, combined with important pre-school learning concepts such as colour and number recognition, sharing, following instructions and using imagination.


I’ve found this foundation of learning then provides an excellent skill set for promoting teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship when they move to the next level.
