We coach over 1500 children a week, with excellent recommendations from schools, parents and players alike! Potential clients are welcome to meet with us at our office to discuss how we can support you with our range of services.
Established in 2012, Footstars has expanded from a one hour a week session to a full time operation consisting of 7 full time members of staff and 2 part time members of staff. From our weekly football centres, we have a number of "success stories" who have gone onto academy trials and signed contracts with professional football clubs.
We work with 16-24 year olds as part of our Traineeship and Apprenticeship Programmes which continues our ever growing relationship with the local community.
