Why Soccer Stars Academy
Why choose us?
Welcome to Soccer Stars Academy. Lanarkshire’s fastest growing toddler and kids football academy. Soccer Stars Academy aims to bridge the gap between professional academies; local boys clubs and kids starting their football adventure. Our range of weekly sessions are designed to nurture and develop all young players.
Our Academy model is designed to cater for players aged 3-10 and is structured around our Player Performance Model that provides a clear development pathway for all our kids.
We have 3 classes that cater for different age groups. These include our Bright Stars class for 3-4-year olds; Shooting Stars for 5-6 year olds and Super Stars for 7-9 year olds.
Parents will also have access to our exclusive on-line reporting tool which allows you to see the skills we aim to develop in each class and how your child is progressing.
Soccer Stars Academy coaches are ex professional footballers, Physical Education 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.
Currently, we offer kids football training in Airdrie, Coatbridge, Wishaw, Hamilton, Cumbernauld and East Kilbride. Our football classes and holiday coaching camps also attract members form the nearby towns of Cumbernauld, Bellshill and Motherwell and we plan to add more classes in Glasgow soon.
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.
