Academy News (Nov 2019)
It’s been a very busy month in our development centres and behind the scenes at ‘Star Towers’
Pre Academy @ LFE Training Centre
We have been pleased with the development of the under 6s group, we have already ready formed one team and we move to the next stage of development with the age group.
The plan is to put two more teams into our training centre grassroots partner club (Kirby Muxloe FC) in September 2020
The Under 5s
We have 14 under 5s registered in the Pre-Academy and they now have their group as they start their footballing journey.
Some of the stronger players will train with the under 6s to aid their development.
Our focus with this age group is to help them get a real connection with the ball at their feet and to build their self-confidence through our learning activities.
We’re looking for Reception & Year 1 girls to join our Pre-Academy so we can form teams for Kirby Muxloe FC
Finding the right environment is key when introducing your child to football.
Our Pre-Academy is one of the biggest in county and has grown so quickly because of the fun and engaging environment we provide for all players.
It also provides a structured pathway into grassroots football clubs.
Introducing Star Tots
Starting in January 2020 we plan to offer indoor training sessions for boys and girls at pre-school.
Initially we will start one morning a week and will run 45 minute session that is based on football, but will also stimulate learning and promote early psycho motor skills.
The sessions are available nursey boys & girls aged 3 and above, the sessions will also provide a pathway into our Pre-Academy.
We will happily promote any player if they’re forward enough to join the Pre-Academy.
More information will following in December's News Bulletin
Star Futsal - Under 7s & Under 8s
We will be starting a 16 week block of Futsal sessions on Monday 6th January 2020 (6:00pm – 7:00pm) at Groby Learning Campus in the main sports hall.
