FUN FOOTY (Ages 7-8)

Fun Football is a Completely FREE program of football discovery and learning FUNdamentals for players turning 7 years. 

Players participate in a skills session which is followed by a game. Sessions are played on Saturdays at Pearson Park in Oxford.  There is no practice during the week.  Note: Our recommendation is that if a player is turning 8, and has completed a year in Fun Footy they could move on to Mini Football.
