Why Soccer Stars Academy
Why choose us?
Welcome to Soccer Stars Academy, Scotland’s fastest growing toddler and kids football academy. Soccer Stars Academy was founded in Scotland by ex-professional footballer and P.E teacher Mark Molloy and his wife Siobhan. With various locations across Scotland and now south of the border in England, the academy is growing at speed every year.
Soccer Stars Academy aims to bridge the gap between professional academies; local boys clubs and kids starting their football adventure. The range of weekly sessions are designed to nurture and develop all young players.
The Academy model is designed to cater for toddler and kids aged 18 months – 9 years old.
We have 4 classes that cater for different age groups. These include;
- Twinkle Stars for 18 months – 3 year olds
- Bright Stars class for 3-4-year olds
- Shooting Stars for 5-6 year olds
- Super Stars for 7-9 year olds
Soccer Stars Academy coaches are ex professional footballers, Physical Education Teachers, Primary Teachers or have academic qualifications such Sports Coaching Degrees. Our coaches are SFA qualified, PVG checked, fully insured and first aid certified. We feel this allows us to provide a high standard of coaching that is on a level with any professional football academy.
At the weekly development classes at Soccer Stars Academy, we give kids and toddlers a positive introduction to football in a pressure-free, friendly and fun environment. Soccer Stars Academy will guarantee that your child will develop not only their football skills, but will also develop their confidence, social and cognitive skills.

A Note From Our Founder
Our kids and toddler football classes were established by myself Mark Molloy and my wife Siobhan after realising there were limited quality football classes for toddlers that our son Louie who was 3 years old could partake in. As a result I decided to create my own football classes for kids- Soccer Stars Academy!
I have played football most of my life and growing up I played with various Scottish and English premier league academies including Celtic, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Everton. I have also represented Scotland at various youth group levels.
I am now an experienced Physical Education teacher with 10 year experience of working with kids aged 5-16 years old.
I believe that the experience and qualifications I have in football and teaching creates the perfect pathway for your child to learn and develop new skills in a fun football environment. Hopefully this will help them gain one of the football clubs for kids that are available throughout Scotland has and further afield.
