What our parents say about us

My son has been attending the class for around 18 months and it has been amazing watching him grow in confidence and develop his skills. The coaches are enthusiastic and very patient and my son loves going each Saturday. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun football class for their child.

Alyson B

From the moment our little one went to the class the instructors have been friendly, approachable and passionate about what they do. Another great point is they always remember the kids names despite the amount of kids they must work with.

Darren Miller

The coaches are fantastic. I started my little boy when he was 3 years old and he absolutely loves it. They're patient and make sure every child attending is looked after and fully involved in all the games and exercises.

Kids Football for All Ages & Levels

Our classes are split into small group sessions and are specifically designed with the different age groups in mind. We understand that children have different needs in their various groups and that each group has their own range of abilities and capabilities.

There are also learning curves and skills that are more important in one age group than in the next. By removing the pressure of intensive competition, especially in our younger groups, we allow learning to flow more naturally. This is why our philosophy of putting our little soccer stars into groups that are age-appropriate creates an environment that allows each child to flourish in their age group.

Our football for kids classes are open for all boys and girls. We are ready to welcome your children to an environment full of fun and a sport that will soon become the highlight of their week. Our classes and clubs are all-inclusive and are for all levels of sports expertise — from toddlers all the way to 9 years old.

Benefits of Our Football Classes for Toddlers, Edinburgh

Is your child under 2 years old and getting ready to start pre-school, or older than 5 years old and in need of a safe space to advance their social skills? There is a multitude of benefits that they can reap from our football clubs, holiday camps, and birthday parties.

Get your young ones to love sports as we coach them into little football stars through our structured programme. Our football classes have seen thousands of children of all ages learn and develop their social and physical abilities. While learning, they are making new friends and having tons of fun along the way.


The games we have designed for our weekly classes teach kids the benefits of being a team player. We focus on how to play fair while also promoting cooperation, togetherness, respect for their opponents, and a friendly atmosphere. 

Most importantly, our classes for kids football in Edinburgh also teach kids that sports can be fun.

As a leading kids football academy in Scotland and the UK, the football training sessions at Soccer Stars Academy have been carefully created with children in mind. Our sessions have been planned by experienced coaches who understand the unique needs of children.

Our football coaching in Edinburgh offers sessions that are 45 minutes each and consist of activities that focus on ball work and in-game situations.

Nationwide, the coaches at Soccer Stars Academy are knowledgeable, qualified, and well-versed in kids soccer. Edinburgh and The Lothians clubs are certainly no different.

Under the watchful eye of our coaching staff, kids master various shooting, ball control, dribbling, and tackling techniques. They also teach more complex skills that are vital for football and sports development in general.

Each training session at our football club is restricted to a maximum of 16 children. This way, every player’s strengths and skills can be assessed individually. Our coaches can work with individuals to further develop their capabilities.

This approach ensures that your child gets the guidance they need to become a good player.

Through our classes, children will come to understand what their bodies are capable of and how extra effort can improve athletic performance. They will also improve the body’s response to specific sporting activities and physical movements.

Whether at the toddler stage or thereafter, each class has been well thought out to cater to your child’s abilities and skills at a defined stage of their life.

Our kids football classes help to develop sound ball skills while teaching your child valuable sports concepts, like the importance of abiding by the rules and fair play.

As far as toddler and kids sports clubs in Edinburgh and The Lothians go, Soccer Stars Academy is certainly one of the best, if not the best, for your little soccer star.

Football Techniques

As with all toddler and kids football clubs, our Edinburgh and The Lothians academies teach your children to make quick decisions and effectively control the ball using advanced techniques.

Your child can learn several football skills through our coaching sessions. These include how to dribble evasively, perform different kinds of kicks, and kick the ball accurately in a specific direction.
