Western United will be engaging its youngest football fans in the beautiful game with the launch of the Lil’ Westies program.
The program is tailored to pre-school aged children with fun and engaging activities designed to develop fundamental motor skills through football.
Lil’ Westies will launch with a pilot program at Arndell Park Community Centre in Truganina, offering four sessions, taking place weekly for two different age groups.
Children aged 2.5 years old to 3.5 years old will form one group, while any child aged between 3-4 years of age will create the second group.
Sessions are free of charge for the launch of the program, beginning Monday 15 May and taking place weekly until Monday 5 June.
Each session is 45 minutes long, with the youngest age group running from 9:15am to 10:00am and the second going from 10:10am to 10:55am.
A parent or guardian will need to be present for the entire session to help their child along and encourage them to continue enjoying each part of the session.
The program will be run by trained, knowledgeable Western United staff with a passion for helping young children get active and develop their motor skills in a welcoming environment.
Football will form the basis of the activities aimed at improving the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of each young participant.
Located in the heart of the West, this program is another initiative that Western United is delighted to implement to engage local communities in its catchment area.
With so many young families in the West, Western United is eager to be actively involved in the community and provide opportunities for growth and development for all young people in the area.
Lil’ Westies is ready to go and invites all young families to participate and get a feel of the Green and Black.
Sign up today to take part in this exciting new program.
