Why Soccer Stars Academy Signup

Shooting Stars — Development Through Play

The Shooting Stars age group is for boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 6 years old. These classes build on the fundamental skills that were learned in our previous toddler age groups. These football classes for kids are the next step in our developmental pathway, focusing on advancing your child’s football techniques according to our academy milestones.


Our Shooting Stars football classes for kids are created with the intention of developing a certain set of skills that will prepare our little football players for the next age group. These skills are:

• Confidence
• Attention
• Spatial Awareness
• Ball Control
• Dribbling
• Shooting
• Tackling
• Game Play
• Football Skills

In these football training classes, children are encouraged to show their football talents in various game situations, such as 1v1, 2v2, and small sided-games. This helps the young footballers build their confidence and practise their skills in an interactive and safe environment.

Benefits of Football Lessons for 5 Year Olds

The purpose of our kids football classes is to help your little ones find joy in sports and exercise and ignite a passion for football in them. That’s why our football programme places emphasis on your child’s holistic growth.

These are some of the benefits parents can expect from our weekly football for under 5s:

What to Expect from Our Classes

Soccer Stars Academy’s coaching sessions aim to help our young footballers grow their skills both on and off the field. We believe that the focus shouldn’t just be on scoring goals and competition, but also on allowing children to have fun and grow at their own pace.

This is what parents can expect from our classes every week:

We believe in creating a nurturing and safe environment that is fun and pressure-free for all of our young football players. Our coaching team will encourage and support your children as they develop their football skills and self-esteem through play.

Our coaching sessions are run by a team of energetic and engaging coaches who are passionate about your child’s progress and guiding them in their development journey. Our team is made up of primary school teachers, football coaches, ex-football players, and individuals with coaching qualifications and experience working with young children.

Our weekly training classes are kept small, allowing your child to develop at their own pace. This individual approach also makes your child feel more comfortable, and allows them to build proper friendships with their teammates and coaches.

With a maximum of 16 kids per class, our football training classes are designed to foster an inclusive environment in which our coaches can give each child the support they need to grow.

Holiday Camps & Birthday Parties

The football fun doesn’t have to end after our weekly kids football classes.

• Our football-themed summer and Easter camps will help keep your children active, outdoors, and entertained during the holidays.

• Our football birthday parties are enjoyable for kids and parents, with party activities designed to make your little footballer feel as special as can be.
