Jake started football at Spartans when he was 4 years old and it quickly became a highlight of his week.  It was recommended by friends and since we signed him up he has never looked back.  He started with the Little Dribblers class on Saturday mornings and really enjoyed it so soon joined Midweek Messis too.    

The sessions are really well organised and the coaches are amazing, it's easy to see how much fun the kids have with them.  Jake has gained so much from his time at Spartans from building his confidence and developing his skills to making new friends.  He has also attended Holiday Hat-tricks camps there in the school holidays, where the Crossbar Challenge when the kids take on the coaches is a highlight!  

I would 100% recommend Spartans to anyone who is looking for their child to get some fresh air and exercise while learning lots of new skills in a fun and friendly atmosphere.  If I had to sum up Spartans in three words I would say: Fun, Organised, Community. 

Jake’s teamwork and enthusiasm are great to see – as coaches we love to see the kids progress through our programmes and develop their skills and love of the game.
