Why Soccer Stars Academy
Why choose us?
Research has shown that children who are physically active in sport from a young age have better health and wellbeing when older. Additionally, sport has also been proven to develop children’s’ physical, cognitive and social skills which can also improve academic performance.
At the weekly 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 ensure that they are not only developing football skills, but they are also developing confidence, social and cognitive skills
Currently, we offer kids football training in Airdrie, Coatbridge and Wishaw. Our football classes and camps also attract members form the nearby towns of Cumbernauld, Bellshill and Motherwell and we plan to add more classes in Hamilton, East Kilbride and Glasgow soon.
Our kids and toddler football classes were established by myself Mark Molloy and my wife Siobhan after realising there were limited football classes for toddlers and pre-school sporting opportunities that our son Louie who is 3 could partake in. Louie was about to start nursery but was still extremely reserved and lacked confidence when other children he did not know were around. I believe that sport, and in particular football, helped me to develop not only my physical skills and fitness but also made me happier and more confident when I was a child.
I can also see the love for the sport shining through in my youngest son Harry. When he watches his brother kick the ball around he is jumping with excitement and wants to join in. Being our second child, Harry is already more confident in himself as he watches everything that Louie does and wants to do the same forgetting that he is 2 years younger! Soccer Super Stars is something I want both of my boys to enjoy as I know it will not only develop their confidence it will improve their physical, cognitive and social skills whilst playing something they love.
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 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.
