Nicki Dack, Mini Athletics Southampton and Eastleigh
"I’m Nicki, mum of 3 (7, 6, 6), wife and a crazy dog owner! I launched my Mini Athletics business in 2019. Before this whirlwind adventure started I was working closely with another children’s sports franchise. This was where I found my love of working with children. In particular, I loved seeing them learn fundamental sporting skills. When the opportunity came to start my own franchise, I looked into the Mini Athletics program. I looked at everything they had to offer in their classes, how the classes were planned and the business model behind it. I was amazed! It was different, exciting and definitely something unique I wanted to share with children in my community. I took the leap and never looked back!
Not only am I able to run a business alongside my hectic family life but I know the product that my coaches are delivering is incredible!! We teach them without them knowing their being taught! Our classes focus on fundamental skills for young children, running, jumping & throwing, but what they don’t realise is that we’re developing their social and cognitive skills in every class too!
This isn’t just a job for me, it’s a love and a passion for giving children the best positive experience of sport."
