Kids Football Lessons for Every Age & Level

We offer kids football classes, sessions, and events for every age and every level – from the very first steps up to 9 years of age.

Whether you’re wanting to introduce your toddler to sport in a social and uncompetitive space or you want to swap out your child’s devices for fun physical activity that improves their motor skills, balance, and movement — we have a programme for you.

Benefits of Our Kids & Toddler Football Classes

Each of our centres in Glasgow, Scotland, and around the country is curated by our coaches to build important skills in football and beyond through fun games, teamwork, and play.

Our weekly soccer classes for children are great fun for all while offering a number of crucial benefits when it comes to the fundamental movement and all-around development of your child.

From session to session, the progress that your child will make through this sport — on and off the field — will be noticeable.

As parents, we all want our little ones to enjoy a balance of fun and personal growth. Each session at Soccer Stars Academy aims to help each child with age-appropriate skills.

We have created a milestone development pathway to ensure the children in our programme develop these essential skills.

Motor Skills, Confidence, Teamwork

Some of the most important skills include balance, co-ordination, and motor skills to improve fundamental movement, as well as cognitive skills (attention and memory) and communication skills to build confidence.

Along with confidence, football can help a child with building positive self-esteem and learning the advantages of teamwork, cooperation, fellowship, and sharing.

Participation in our fun games allows the kids to truly learn through football, adding a special balance between physical, mental, and social development for every child.

The kids learn the benefits of being a team player and learn how to play fair. Each football training session promotes cooperation, togetherness, respect for the opponents and a friendly atmosphere.

Each football training session at Soccer Stars Academy Glasgow has been created with children in mind — and that is why we have won the awards that we have.

Experienced Coaches

We recognise that kids football coaching is very different to club football coaching which is why our team of experienced coaches is made up of qualified primary teachers, ex-footballers, and professional soccer coaches.

PVG Certified, First Aid Trained Coaches

All of our coaches are also SFA qualified, DBS checked, and first-aid trained.

45 Minute Football Session

Each 45-minute football session uses fun games to introduce the kids to movement through play.

Free Play & Activities

This involves structured free play and a range of exciting soccer-related games and activities designed to help kids move onto more active independent interaction.

We also have a theme each week to develop the kids’ imaginations.

Along with teaching the kids to control the ball effortlessly and make on-the-spot decisions, our coaching sessions develop a variety of football skills.

Some of these skills include dribbling evasively, performing a variety of kicks, basic mastery over the ball and kicking the ball in a specific direction accurately.

Our small classes allow each child to grow at their own pace, build relationships with their classmates and coaches, and shine bright as they constantly improve their football skills.

Maximum 16 Kids Per Class

Each kids football training class is restricted to a maximum of 16 kids. This way, we are able to give individual attention to each child and balance each session to ensure the most fun for all.

In every session, we assess every child’s skills and strengths and work with them to develop further.

All Levels Welcome

Not only do we encourage teamwork, but we are also inclusive of all abilities.

No matter what level your child is at, our coaches will consider each toddler’s needs and their progress from session to session – all the while celebrating their achievements and helping them overcome areas that they might find challenging.

Starting with fun movement, physical activity and sport at a young age can have a lifetime impact.

Many kids football teams have a competitive culture with the aim to ready their members for a career in football. This can make finding a toddler-friendly soccer club in Glasgow difficult.

Well, look no further. Our aim is to keep kids active and build their confidence and health through fitness that is fun and football that is social.

Mobility & Health

Using fun games, we introduce toddlers to the concept of participating in organised movement and physical activity. Over time, the children improve their bodies’ ability to respond to specific activities and physical movements.

Adding this level of physical activity to their weekly routine will strengthen bones and bodies, while also improving blood circulation, sleeping habits, appetite, and general immunity.

As with any other sport, there are many new skills to be learnt and we start with the very basics at toddler level while working with children aged 18 months and up.

Using fun games before even introducing a football, our priority is to ensure that every child feels like they are indeed playing when they play football.

Ball Skills & Fair Play

Our football classes help to develop sound ball skills while teaching the importance of abiding by the rules and fair play.

Personalised Attention

Our coaches gauge the levels of the class as a whole as well as that of each child in order to apply appropriate activities for growing the right skills in each session.

The sessions at our kids’ football clubs in Glasgow are fun and interactive for both parents and children.

It is proven that sport and physical activity is a great mood booster and stress reducer – regardless of whether you’re an adult or a child.

At all of our centres, we encourage a culture of learning through games, communication, movement, participation, and, of course, football!

Innumerable Benefits to Play Sport

Our activities are great fun and are aimed at introducing toddlers to the concept of participating in organised physical activity.

There are many benefits to taking away the competitive edge of the traditional kids’ soccer club and replacing it with age-related games that encourage them to interact as they learn and grow.

Develop Essential Skills

The result is a fun weekly outing that allows your child to grow and develop essential life skills while becoming fit and healthy and having the time of their life!

If you’re looking for Glasgow kids clubs and activities, with Soccer Stars Academy Glasgow your kids can enjoy the perfect balance of fun and learning.
