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 Classes for Children Aged 18 Months to
9 Years Old

With our kids and toddler football classes in Durham, we guarantee a positive introduction to the sport with classes tailored specifically to the abilities of each age group. These sessions are divided into four different classes.

Benefits of Our Football Classes

With the right learning environment early in a child’s development, they have the perfect foundation to become well-rounded individuals as they grow up. The exercise and concentration required to play football are healthy and essential elements for a growing, learning mind.

All of our weekly classes are tailor-made to build these essential skills and develop fundamental movements that benefit a rapidly growing child.

You’ll notice these positive changes in your child as they progress from session to session, seeing them apply the important lessons to their lives off the field as well.

As a leading football academy for kids in the UK, Soccer Stars Academy provides a star-quality experience curated with children in mind. Our knowledgeable coaches understand the needs of kids at such young ages, and the classes are tailored to those needs.

Each class lasts 45 minutes, during which your children will learn the game of football through ball skills training and activities to simulate in-game situations.

Each class is limited to 16 children to maximise the learning experience and allow our passionate coaches to work closely with each child to get them where they want to be. This ensures that your child gets one-on-one assessments to discover and enhance their personal skill set, all in a fun and encouraging environment.

Early socialisation is a key component of early childhood development, and the games we’ve developed for our weekly classes help teach children how to work in a team.

While we teach them football, they also learn cooperation and respect for their fellow players. Your children also have the opportunity to make new friends and build their confidence, a life skill that will help them throughout their lifetime.


As with our other locations, with our kids football in Durham, children not only learn invaluable life lessons, but also vital soccer techniques.

Kicking the ball accurately in various ways and dribbling evasively are just some of the techniques our experienced coaches include in their classes. Your little one will have a helping hand in developing their skills while having a great time learning the fundamentals of football.

Ball skills are an important aspect of football classes, and with our football training in Durham, your kids will learn this, as well as concepts like following rules and engaging in fair play. This sets them up for success later in life, whether they continue to pursue their football career or are simply in it to have some fun.

Football is so much more than just a sport! There are numerous physical and emotional benefits that come with playing football and leading an active lifestyle. Promoting holistic growth in children, our kids and toddler football classes in Durham can help children improve their mental and physical well-being, as well as make new friends.
