It’s Kids Stuff At Dome Football Academy
Three to six-year olds are having a ball in Abu Dhabi’s new ‘Mini-Kicker” programme

Now youngsters in the 3-4 and 5-6 year age groups have the chance to polish their skills following the launch of the ‘Mini-Kicker’
The programme encourages children to learn football in a fun way, with no emphasis on winning or losing, but on building self-confidence and gaining social skills as they listen and follow directions from coaches, cooperate and share with their team mates. The techniques taught help these youngsters develop co-ordination and fine tune their motor skills as well as instil sense of fun from exercise.
“It’s wonderful to see the smile on the faces of the youngsters,”
“We signed our daughter up to the programme because we were keen she participates in a team sport and she loves football,” said Richard Rose, a British expatriate living in Abu Dhabi whose five year old daughter Molly regularly wins player of the day.

“She has learnt multiple skills such as how to take instruction, how to interact with other young children, how to appreciate space and how to control, dribble, run with, pass and shoot the ball. Most of all she is having fun and getting exercise.”
Reem Investments has built a vibrant sporting community around its Dome facility since opening it just under two years ago at Rawdhat, the residential and business district taking shape on Airport Road, Abu Dhabi.
