Using the FC Halifax Town coaching syllabus and specially selected equipment, the programme uses football as a medium to introduce toddlers to a variety of exercises to help develop physical skills of agility, balance and coordination, children will also be helped with their first steps in reading and numeracy.

Sessions are split into three stages of development:

Stage 1: non-walking to walking (6-months upwards)

Stage 2: walking to 3 years

Stage 3: 3-4 years
