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.

Football Training for Boys & Girls of All Ages

Our children’s football programme is curated for young children from ages 18 months to 9 years old with a class for each of our four age groups. We coach both boys and girls in football through a range of fun and engaging activities that encourage both learning and socialising.

We’ve fostered a pressure-free environment where toddlers and children can learn and play football without the competitive element that characterises youth football clubs. They will also increase their confidence and, most importantly, have fun!

Benefits of our Kids Football Classes in Essex

Parents can expect to see positive changes in their children after each weekly training session at Soccer Stars Academy. You will notice you child’s personalities beginning to shine on the field, at home, and out in the world.

Football encourages holistic growth, so a child can attain many emotional and physical benefits from playing a sport like football.

The active lifestyle enables them to stay healthy and fit as they grow and to make new friends outside of school. It can also reduce stress, improve emotional resilience, and promote better mental health and self-esteem.

Our football coaches consist of qualified primary school teachers, football couches, and ex-professional footballers who are experienced in working with children. They are trained to ensure a safe environment while also focusing on making sessions exciting.

Every 45-minute session at Soccer Stars Academy is designed to be enjoyable, engaging, and educational while giving the children a nurturing space where they can foster a passion for the beautiful game and improve their interpersonal skills.

Football is an energetic, fast paced activity that involves the entire body. During the weekly training sessions at Soccer Stars Academy, our young players jump, sprint, and sharply change directions, which releases their abundant energy constructively.

These movements are important for children because they improve their bone and cardiovascular health and their general endurance. Football also increases balance, co-ordination, agility, strength, speed, stamina, and focus.

As a parent, you can expect nothing less than a top-notch coaching experience when you book football training lessons for your child with us.

Our groups include a maximum of 16 kids per class so we can ensure that everyone receives the individual attention and support required to progress at their own pace.

Much like a kids’ football club, our football coaching is focused on fundamental skills such as dribbling, passing, and various types of kicking. We also teach our players about tactics, the various positions in football, and the unique responsibilities in each role.

Our boys and girls learn to make quick, on-the-spot decisions and express themselves on the field as they develop their confidence. We also teach them to support fellow teammates and about the importance of respecting football rules to foster fair play and good sportsmanship.

With football being a team sport, cooperation and respect are the game’s foundation. We ensure everyone learns these principles and the benefits of being a team player.

Under the guidance of an experienced coach, your child will improve their communication and listening skills while making new friends with whom they will look forward to hanging out with every week during our football coaching sessions for children.
