If your child is looking for a gateway into sports, then Little Lions might be just the ticket. The club for boys and girls aged 3-10 gets kids to practice team spirit and motor skills.
Coach Scott Browne explains that “staying involved in physical activity and sports comes from positive experiences early on in our lives.” The club’s main goal is to kindle and sustain a love of sports in children from which they will later reap the benefit of a healthy lifestyle.
Kids are trained by a team of 10 coaches, all from a rugby background, who are passionate about imparting several core values: integrity, solidarity, discipline and respect. This sense of sportsmanship is central to the club. Every training session ends on a positive note when teammates and coaches form what is called a tunnel in rugby to applaud each other.
The club is thoroughly international with many expat and Luxembourg children coming together in an energetic and inclusive environment. Fun is not inhibited by linguistic barriers as coaches speak an array of languages, including English, French, Luxembourgish, Spanish and German.
Sessions are typically between 60 and 90 minutes and training takes place every Sunday during the school term at Lycée Michel Lucius in Limpertsberg, but the club also hosts holiday camps.
And just to make sure the club is suitable for your child, it welcomes anyone to try a free taster session.
