The Striker Tots Programme has been
designed by ex-professional footballer Richard Graham.
Richard joined the then Premier League club Oldham Athletic
straight from school making his home debut against Manchester
United. He remained at the club for 9 years making over
170 appearances before his career was cut short due
to a serious knee injury.
Richard has a ‘football mad’ son and after
struggling to find a suitable football class to take
him to in the local area, decided there was a need for
infant football sessions to be provided. It just made
sense for him to use his vast skills and experience
to design a programme and take up the role of Head Coach.
The sessions aren’t just for boys! Richard’s
daughter is also a regular attendee who enjoys football
just as much as any boy!
Our sessions are very friendly and everyone seems to
thoroughly enjoy them – even the parents cheering
from the sidelines! It is amazing how much the kids
grow in confidence each week and this is actively encouraged.
Parents are surprised just how rapidly their child’s
football skills improve and often at their level of
ability at such a young age. It is fantastic for us
Toddler ‘football play’ sessions
These sessions are aimed at kids from walking age to
2 years old for those toddlers who already love football
but are too young for the Striker Tots programme. They
will have loads of fun at our ‘football play’
sessions where they get to play with the footballs,
goals and other equipment and to start to develop very
basic football skills. They will also learn important
social skills and make friends with other football mad
If you are interested in attending the toddler sessions
but are unable to make it to the current sessions running,
please do get in touch to register your interest as
we will add more sessions in different areas if there
are toddlers wanting to come along!
Holiday Soccer Schools
Striker Tots also run school holiday football courses
for primary school age children (year 1 to year 6).
Kids have a great time with their mates and making new
friends whilst improving their football skills and spending
time being active and increasing their fitness levels.

Striker Tots can also be booked for birthday
