Douglas Park Nursery kids are getting into the spirit of things as World Cup fever spreads.

An SFA mini-kickers event took place at the Cathcart Road children's centre and kids couldn't wait to get started and emulate their footballing heroes.

Mini-Kickers classes are fun participation sessions that provide the ideal first step on a young person’s 'Football for Life' journey.

Children aged 3-5 take part in a wide range of activities designed to improve their physical literacy; running, jumping, hopping, skipping, balancing, rolling, bouncing, climbing, throwing, catching and of course, kicking are all developed.

Using imagination and creativity, the children play their way through many different themed sessions.

Music, balloon play and obstacle courses ensure every session is great fun.
