At Kixx our goal is simple:
To have a positive impact on every child at every opportunity.

We do this through an innovative programme which offers a high energy, fun, age-appropriate introduction to physical activity through football.

Our programme has been carefully designed for both boys and girls between the ages of 2 and 9 years of age.

Kixx Academies
Our academies are 40 minute sessions run weekly. We do a block of 8 weeks, then a 1 week break, then another block and so on. You pay a one-off membership fee of £19.95 which covers your child’s football kit (shirt, shorts, socks) and then a direct debit of £24 per month. In effect it works out at around £6 per session. The bookings have a full money back guarantee – if after your first session you think it really isn’t for you, then you can get a full refund, plus your child keeps the football kit as a “thank you” for trying us.

Our Venues
We are adding more venues all the time. Currently we have academies at:
Loddon Jubilee Hall
NR14 6NB
Goals (Hall Road)
Framingham Earl High School
NR14 7QP
Sprowston Community Academy

For more info and bookings visit our website. To contact us, just send us a message on Facebook. We look forward to welcoming you to the Kixx family!
