Shaytots is an innovative way for children aged 6-months to 4 years to learn and enjoy sport.  Sessions are focused on fun and structured play and include full parental participation.

Using the FC Halifax Town coaching syllabus and specially selected equipment the programme uses football as a medium to introduce toddlers to a variety of exercises to help develop physical skills of agility, balance and coordination, children will also be helped with their first steps in reading and numeracy.

On graduating from Shaytots players will possess a good understanding of fundamental football skills such as; dribbling, passing and control and able to continue their development in the FC Halifax Town Community and Academy programme.

Sessions are split into three stages of development:

  • Stage 1: non-walking to walking (6-months upwards)
  • Stage 2: walking to 3 years
  • Stage 3: 3-4 years
