Benefits of Our Football Classes for Toddlers, Newcastle

Our football training sessions for children in Newcastle welcome boys and girls of all ages and abilities with the purpose of making football and exercise fun and constructive. Each class aims to develop and teach children through play.

Starting football training at an early age can encourage and inspire toddlers and children in many ways.

The journey that our programme has set out for young developing children builds self-confidence, creativity, cognitive skills, and general motor skills. Football is the perfect sport for engaging physical and mental capabilities in your child through play.

These are some of the major benefits:

Our training sessions are a great starting place for toddlers to develop fundamental social skills and make new friends.

With Soccer Stars Academy Newcastle, children learn the benefits of being a team player and learn how to play fair.

Each football training session strives to encourage a friendly atmosphere and promotes cooperation, togetherness and respect for opponents.

In order to provide a high standard of coaching that is on par with any professional football academy, the football training sessions at Soccer Stars Academy Newcastle have been created by experienced coaches with children in mind.

Our coaches are a combination of ex-professional footballers, physical education teachers, primary teachers and trainers with academic qualifications such as sports coaching degrees.

Every coach at Soccer Stars Academy is SFA qualifiedDBS checked, fully insured and first aid certified.

Each 45-minute session at Soccer Stars Academy Newcastle involves paired activities, ball work, and game situations that develop a variety of football skills.

Over each level and age group, our football club coaches teach children to command the ball and to make on-the-spot decisions. Some of the techniques include dribbling evasively, performing a variety of kicks, basic mastery over the ball, and kicking the ball accurately in a specific direction.

Each kids’ football training class is restricted to a maximum of 16 children, so parents can rest assured that their child will receive adequate attention and care.

In these small classes, our coaches are able to give individual attention to each child, focusing on and assessing every player’s unique abilities and strengths with the aim of developing them further over the weekly sessions.

The key to any sport is movement and positive physical activity. From our littlest toddler sessions to our most advanced children’s sessions, we make the development of motor skills, muscle strength, and co-ordination fun.

Through football, movement and play, the children learn and understand what their body is capable of and how extra effort can improve performance.

They also heighten their body’s ability to respond to specific activities and physical actions, which helps develop agility.

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

Along with football skills, the journey that our programme has set out for young developing children also builds important cognitive skills and general motor skills.

Football is the perfect sport for engaging physical and mental capabilities in your child through play.
