Little Devils Blaze Away

Friday, June 19, 2015 - 2:21 PM

The Demons District is plotting the development of a new program, Demons Footy Fundamentals, which is suited to kids aged 18 months to 4 years old. The new develops the catching, crawling and running capabilities of Kindergarten and Pre-Primary School students instead of the more specialised skills of handballing and kicking. 

Demons Footy Fundamentals is set to ignite at Lathlain Park on Thursday mornings starting on the 23rd April and concluding on the 25th June. The 10 week program, blazes the trail of the wildly successful Falcons Footy Fundamentals and Swans Footy Fundamentals to capture a previously untapped demographic in the Demons District. Demons Footy Fundamentals is designed to develop the motor skills, attention span, independence and health and wellbeing of Kindergartners prior to becoming Auskickers at a junior community club.

Demons Footy Fundamentals is divided into the impishly named Dinky Dees, suited to 18 month to 3 year-olds and Little Lucifers, which is geared towards 3 to 4 year-olds. Dinky Dees will ignite at 8:45am whilst Little Lucifers will start at 9:30am. The 30 minute sessions are designed to ensure maximum participation through the utilisation of specialised equipment including balancing beams, bean bags, hula hoops and plush footballs.

Demons Footy Fundamentals, which costs $100 per term, will provide little devils from across the Demons District with the perfect entrée to Auskick, whilst improving coordination and social skills. The Demons District hope the program will also entice people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities to become part of our game.
