Academy News (Feb 2020)


The rain is still lashing down and now the wind has now arrived, but that didn?t stop it being a busy month in the Academy.


Star Futsal Camp

What a fantastic Futsal Training Camp it was over half-term, just over 40 players attending and some trying for futsal for the first time.

It was the perfect choice with how bad the weather was and being indoors the players were out of the elements to enjoy playing the sport,

The next Futsal Training Camp will be at the October half-term as we will now host football training camps over the spring / summer months.

Easter Football Camp

As you know we like to do things differently at Star Soccer Academy and our football holiday camps are not cast the net wide and are not cast the net wide and have the younger ones playing against players that are 2 or 3 years older and not getting a touch of the ball

We would like to train over 100 players across our Easter camp but we want players to get the maximum return on the ball and that is why we?re delighted to announce our camps will be age specific.

Although the girls are more than welcome to attend the Academy session on the Wednesday & Thursday, we have put together a fantastic day session that is based around girls motivations and what they enjoy.

Future Stars Programme (2020/21 Season)

We have started preparations for 2020/21 season and we will be creating the following teams:

  • Under 10s ? Future Stars (Saturday Team)
  • Under 9s ? Future Stars (Saturday Team)
  • Under 8s ? Future Stars (Saturday Team)

Our Future Stars teams are for boys that train at our centres that do not play for grassroots clubs

Both of our grassroots partner clubs have their full quota of teams in the above age groups.

Our Future Stars Programme will consist of training on Mondays/Tuesdays & Saturdays with a match every two weeks on a Saturday.

We feel this ticks a number of boxes as we can provide opportunities to players that are new into football, play other sports on Sundays (Rugby) or just having a bad experience or not getting matches with their respected grassroots clubs and to give parents a different development pathway to choose from.

The Future Stars Programme will start after the Easter Holidays.
