FOOTBALL FUN FACTORY IS HERE and making football fun and accessible to all is what we do best. The Football Fun Factory was designed to provide a safe, fun and thrilling environment in which children can develop their physical, social and cognitive skills at their own pace without any pressure what so ever.

We use the nations love for football to help and aid children’s development. Our environments are designed so that the children feel no pressure what so ever at all of our sessions. The only pressure is on the coaches to ensure that your children go away with big smiles on their faces.

Not only do we believe but we know that the best way to help children develop these skills is to make sure they have fun. Because without fun and enjoyment children will not want to remember or retain these skills.

We offer a multitude of opportunities which include our two weekly sessions, Football Fun and Development (Ages 5-12) and our Tots Football Fun (Ages 2-5). We also run our Football Fun camps during every school holidays and also do birthday parties and events.

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 £23.95  which covers your child’s football kit (shirt, shorts, socks) and then a direct debit of £30 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.
