Little Kickers provides boys and girls from 18 months through to seven years of age with an intro- duction to football. The programme started more than 10 years ago in London, Eng- land. Since then, it has grown to provide more than 20,000 enthu- siastic young footballers with the chance to let off steam and get ﬁt each week. There are classes operating in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, Canada, Cyprus, Ecuador and across New Zealand. The scheme was developed by early childhood educators in conjunction with top European coaches. It works on the basis that chil- dren are much more likely to learn if their imaginations are engaged and skills are introduced through fun games, rather than formal drills. The company’s motto is “Play not Push”, and Little Kickers emphasises providing a fun envi- ronment for children to learn in, rather than a competitive one. The Manukau East franchise is being run by local mum Janet Cho. “When I ﬁrst came across Little Kickers I knew it would be perfect for my energetic two-year-old, then when I learnt of the franchise opportunity I knew it would be perfect for me too. “I also noticed there was little around offering a gentle introduc- tion to team sports for preschool kids in the local area. “I always wanted to start my own business and love dealing with kids, so I decided to take on the Little Kickers franchise for the area.” The courses are divided into four age groups: Little Kicks, for 18 months to two years old; Jun- ior Kickers, for two to 3.5 years; Mighty Kickers, for 3.5 to ﬁve years; and Mega Kickers, for ﬁve to seven years. Classes on Saturday mornings at Point View School, Botany, and Tuesday mornings at Te Tuhi Centre for the Arts, Pakuranga, are starting next year. For prices and further informa- tion, phone Janet Cho on 273-3338, or visit www.littlekickers.co.nz. SHOOTS, SCORES: Little Kickers aims to instil extra confidence, co- ordination and a sense of camaraderie in youngsters through football.

Along with China’s number two junior Runhao (Leo) Hua, Norrie committed to Michigan during the early signing period last month after gelling with coach Bruce Berque on the visit. “It would have been nice to visit other colleges, but Michigan is the one for me. [Berque] is a genuine guy. The campus is nice and the facilities are really good. My only concern is the cold.” Berque says: “We’re extremely excited that Leo and Cameron have decided to join us at Michigan. “They both come with a signiﬁcant amount of experience at the international junior level, and we believe both will make immediate impacts on our programme. “They both took ofﬁcial visits this fall and were comfortable with the guys on our team and the academic and athletic oppor- tunities at the University of Michigan.” Norrie is yet to decide what he’ll study on the four-year athletic scholarship. “Probably something general, because I have to put my tennis ﬁrst. “I can leave earlier if I’m ready for the tour.” The former Macleans College pupil will return to the LTA in January following the Heineken Open in Auckland. He was mentioned as the possible recip- ient of the main draw wildcard for last year’s tournament, which eventually went to Daniel King-Turner. Norrie suspects his new British nationality will pre- clude him from being offered the leg-up in the future. “My ranking should get me into qualifying though. I under- stand. I know I’ve made the choice. I think it would be a bit rude to ask.” Upsets thrill except those by upstairs ref Opinion, by DANIEL SILVERTON ONE of the greatest joys of being involved in sport is the thrill of the unexpected. While the All Blacks trailing the Irish by 19 points in as many minutes in Dublin wasn’t the start any New Zealand fans wanted, the drama and enjoyment of the rugby test was increased because no one saw it coming. However, there are two instances in the sporting realm when the unpredicted is deﬁnitely unwanted: video refereeing deci- sions and awards ceremonies. As the accuracy and inﬁltration of on-ﬁeld technology increases, so too it seems does the number of inexplicable outcomes conjured by television match ofﬁcials. When an unforeseen result occurs in a match, even losing fans should be able appreciate the exploits of a successful underdog, or the outright supremacy of one team in what was billed as a close encounter. When the result of a video ref decision goes awry though, in plain sight to those at the ground and watching on TV, the only emo- tion is outrage. Likewise, awards ceremonies. Upsets at these events could be reason to celebrate, as they can add colour to what are typically staid affairs. Sadly, audiences and nominees alike are too often left dumb- founded at judges’ selections. Last month, one of the most exciting prospects in world rugby for 2013, All Black, Blues and Pakuranga outside back Charlie Piutau, was a seemingly hands- down winner for the Counties Manukau sportsman of the year award following a ﬂawless season. Instead, it went to NZ Sevens representative Sherwin Stowers. An errant bounce of the ball, a moment of pressure-induced madness by a player and even the odd dud call by an on-ﬁeld referee which costs a game is accepted by fans and teammates as part of the sporting contract. But insanity is all that will pre- vail if too much time and energy is spent trying to make sense of a startling awards verdict or televi- sion match ofﬁcial’s blunder.
