Football Classes For Kids
Our football for kids training classes are known as ‘Twinkle Stars’, for 18 months to 3 years, ‘Bright Stars’ for 3-5 years, ‘Shooting Stars’, for 5-6 yrs and ‘Super Stars’, for 7-9 yrs.
The Twinkle Stars classes are the first in our development pathway. These classes are fun and interactive for both parents and children and are designed to help kids develop social and motor skills and help them move onto more active independent interaction.
Our Bright Stars classes are designed with the philosophy of being FUN. In these classes, our aim is to develop basic football skills. However, we also aim to develop confidence and cognitive skills such as attention and memory. This is achieved by using a range of exciting football related games and activities. Each week we also have a theme to develop kids’ imagination.
The Shooting Stars classes are designed with skill in mind, we aim to advance football skills such as shooting technique, dribbling, ball control, passing and tackling. We also introduce kids to our ‘Skills to beat players model’. However, ensuring kids have FUN is essential to develop these skills.
The Super Stars classes are designed to further develop the skills learned previously. Kids are also introduced to more complex skills to beat players. Additionally within these classes we develop kids game awareness. This includes understanding of positions and spatial reaction
These Kids Football classes are steps 2 & 3 on the path of developing your child’s football skills. The focus is on teaching advanced football techniques and sets them up perfectly for our invitation only ‘Soccer Stars Academy’ classes which have been developed in collaboration with academy coaches throughout the UK.
Hopefully at this stage, your child will be ready for one of the many Football For Kids Training Classes.
Benefits of Our Football for Kids Training Classes
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.
The football training sessions at Soccer Stars Academy have been created with children in mind. Each 45-minute session involves paired activities, ball work and game situations.
Our football club coaches the kids to control the ball effortlessly and to 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.
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. We assess every player’s skills and strengths and work on them to develop them further.
The kids understand what their body is capable of and how extra effort can improve performance. They also improve their body’s ability to respond to specific activities and physical movements.
Our football classes will help to develop sound ball skills while teaching the importance of abiding by the rules and fair play.
