Arsenal Soccer Schools are launching a new ‘Mini Gunners’ programme in January, to introduce two to five-year-olds to the beautiful game.

The scheme will give participants a fun and encouraging grounding in the sport, with the focus as much on developing confidence and a sense of teamwork, as learning the basics of football.

Sessions will be delivered by experienced Arsenal Soccer Schools coaches, with parents welcome to get involved too if they wish.

The courses will be split into two age categories - for two to three-year-olds and four-five year olds - to ensure everyone has the chance to develop with players their own age.
