WITHIN two years of launching their soccer and ball skills program for pre-schoolers, Dave and Nicola O'Reilly have been honoured at the recent Sunshine Coast Business Excellence Awards.

The Yaroomba couple began Kiddie Kicks Soccer when they realised there was a lack of activities for pre-school children in which to enrol their two young boys.

Classes are now offered at five different locations around the Coast.

Dave and Nicola also deliver classes at three early learning centres and they have recently launched their junior soccer program, Soccer Strikers. Not bad for two year's work.

Head coach Dave said the Sunshine Coast had proved to be a great place to launch the business.

"It seems most people who live here on the Coast are conscious of the type of lifestyle they lead and the lifestyle they choose for their children," he said.

Nicola said the Coast community had embraced Kiddie Kicks, with demand forcing the introduction of extra coaching staff.

Kiddie Kicks sessions are run on weekday mornings at indoor venues from Noosa through to Caloundra. For more information, phone 0423 918 091 visit kiddiekicks.com.au or email info@kiddiekicks .com.au.
